I cant remeber a time in my life of not knowing Ike. I grew up in the VFW and have worked in there since i was 22. He was a wonderful caring man and i will miss him! I am very sorry for your loss. He talked about how wonderful his daughter was all the time! He was a very proud grandfather!

Ike Millington was a piece of work, a nice man, never knew a stranger.  He was very sharp, always remembered and shared a lot of stories.  God bless you in your time of loss.. I will miss seeing "Ike" around town.

Ike was "Uncle Ike" to many.  Although he was my "great" uncle there was a closeness as he loved being around family.  Ike was friends to many and always greeted people with a smile.  My heartfelt sympathies to Aunt Abby and to Karla and her family.

Dear Avvie & family:

Ike was a cornerstone here in his beloved Richwood and will be missed by all who came in contact with him. I'm glad to know he went in his sleep because he would have made a lousy patient. He would want to be out and about seeing what was going on.
You and your family are in our prayers.

Dear Karla and Family, You are in our prayers at this very difficult time. We laid our Daddy to rest yesterday and we are praying that the two fellows have met and are enjoying a game of cards and meeting up with our Mothers. God bless all of you.
