James Benjamin Mills, 69, born in Kingston, departed this life on July 2, 2017. He was the beloved son of the late Benjamin Mills and Betty Perry Mills. He is survived by 2 siblings, a brother, Melvin H. Mills and a sister, Judge Miriam K. Mills, retired. He also leaves surviving a niece, Selena Mills, 2 grandnieces Aneesha and Zahria, and a nephew, Tech Sgt. Damien A. Mills, USAF, who is serving in the Air Force.
Whether he was known as James, Jimmy, or Mills, he was larger than life. Once, when he was standing next to his flashy car on Broadway of Kingston with a cowboy hat and boots on, James Gandolfini inquired as to what his celebrity status was. On the other hand, his niece received a free hotdog at a hotdog stand just because the proprietor found out she was related to Jimmy Mills - a sign that Jimmy had a host of friends that loved him.
Jimmy's affection for his toys didn't compare to the proportion of love that he had for his friends, which was very much reciprocated. He had many long-term relationships throughout his life. No matter his love for motorcycles, flashy cars, and boats, the biggest loves of his life were his friends and people in general - he could talk to and connect with anybody and everybody.
Entrusted to the care of the Keyser Funeral & Cremation Service, 326 Albany Avenue, Kingston. Friends may call on Monday from 4 - 7 pm. The service will be held at 7:00 PM.
