Mr. Rodney "Rod" Owen McMillan, 74, of Groves, passed away on Friday, June 3, 2022. Rod was born on Saturday, November 8, 1947, in Groves, Texas to Mr. Wilton Owen McMillan and Mrs. Elizabeth Jane (Bythewood) McMillan. 

Rodney loved to work on Harleys and build engines at his machine shop- Rod’s Automotive. Running into Rod on any giving day at the shop, you’d see him doing machine work and always wearing Harley Davidson attire. He also loved to race cars, riding Harleys, play with the dogs, and enjoyed days at the lake and listening to the blues.

Rod leaves lasting memories of happy days and smiles with those that knew him and loved him, and his memories and love will not soon be forgotten.

Rod survived by his son, Douglas Owen McMillan; his granddaughter, Mecaela Houston and her children Lillian, Piper, Mack, and Charlotte Houston; his grandson, Nathan McMillian; his sister, Susan Reynolds; and numerous extended family members, loved ones, and friends throughout the years.

Rod is preceded in death by his parents Wilton Owen McMillan and Elizabeth Jane McMillian; and his brother, Paul McMillan.
