James Gordon Mills, 78, passed on Feb. 14, of natural causes in his home of 50 years near Hillsboro.
He is survived by his wife Patricia; sons Judson and Jason; and grandsons Dalton, Jagger, Cash, and Aubrey.
Born a Washingtonian, he attended St. Albans School, Yale Univ., and American Univ. Law School, and retired as a lawyer with the Federal Trade Commission.
His loves were his family, real country life in his historic stone house, playing music as a drummer, and his inseparable Border Collies.
Memorial Services to be determined.
