Robert Arthur Millie, 72, left this earthly home for his Heavenly home on Friday, August 21, 2020. Born in Toronto, Ontario, he was the son of the late John H. (Jack) Millie and Verna A. Wilkes Millie. Bob graduated from East Carolina University where he played football and made lifelong friends. He enjoyed a very successful career with Golden Corral Corporation for 40 years, 28 years as the Franchisee of the Golden Corral in Cordele, GA until his retirement in 2018. Bob was a Toronto Maple Leafs’ fan and loved the sport of hockey. His favorite spot was the Outer Banks of North Carolina and he took the entire family there in June, 2019 so his precious children and grandchildren could enjoy it with him. His hobbies included genealogy and Ebay, where he prided himself on having a 100% satisfaction rating. Bob was known for his ability to fix anything, especially for his beloved children and grandchildren. “If it is broken, take it to Grampy, he can fix it.” Most of all Bob loved his family. He was a loving Husband, Father and Grampy and was known for his bear hugs and “I love you more.” He was so loved and will be missed dearly.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Theresa Millie; his devoted and beloved son and his boyfriend, Robert Blake Millie of Atlanta, GA and Mauricio Gardeazabal of Doraville, GA; his devoted and beloved son and his wife Robert Quinn and Perla Millie of McDonough, GA, and his precious grandchildren, Arleth and Kaden Millie of McDonough, GA, a loving Sister and “Brother” Dorothy and David O’Brien of Aliston, Ontario; his loving “Sister” and “Brother” Loutrell and Greg Walker of Cordele, GA; and his loving Mother-In-Law, Mavis Gwinnell (Nell) Mathis of Cordele, GA.; and a niece, several nephews and his fur baby C.C.. Bob was preceded in death by his Father-In-Law, Homer Nesbitt Mathis; and his “Brother”, Nesbitt Eugene Mathis.

A Graveside Service will be held on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. in the Sunnyside Cemetery in Cordele, GA. Donations may be made to the East Carolina University Athletic Department at Ward Sports Medicine Building, Greenville, NC 27858

Prayers for the family and friends of Bob. Starting forty years ago he and I worked together at Golden Corral and over the years he was always a good friend. He always had a smile and would do whatever he could to help anyone out. I would best describe him as a true gentleman. It was a privilege that I had the opportunity to know him.

I am so heartbroken to be reading this ,Mr.Millie was a giant man I remember when I first saw him at the 1st Golden corral Cordele location he hired me as a waitress sitting on concrete blocks because I had been there everyday tiring to catch him to get a job even before the building was built an we trained in Moultrie Ga.
He taught me to take pride in a job well done he loved Golden corral & people he always said as long as he had a place of business I would always have a job he was a great boss an better friend . Theresa and Family, I wish I could take the sadness away sending prayers for comfort an peace and much love your way. May God Wrap his arms around you all an Bless an keep you. love you Jennifer

Mrs. Theresa and Family, We are so saddened to hear of Mr. Bob's passing. He and your family were always such wonderful friends to my daddy and mama. They loved you all very much. I still can remember sitting at the Golden Corral and hearing Mr. Bob tell stories and that big laugh he had was just contagious. And who can forget those ski trips to Lake Blackshear. Those were wonderful times that we will always cherish. Know that you are in our hearts and Prayers. The Akins and Fore Families
