Harley Rickey Mills (89)
January 2, 1933 - March 21, 2024
Harley passed away after a long battle with cancer on March 21 while surrounded by his family.  He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years Myra F (Adams) Mills, his parents Herbert and Bonnie Mills, and his step-son David K. Simpson.  He is survived by his step-children Rose (Lonnie) Dixon, Myra (Johnny) Hilton, Linda (Daniel) Breazzeal, Starla Barnhill, Ricky (Paula) Simpson, Twyla (Robert) Sample, along with numerous grandchildren, great children and several great-great grandchildren.
Harley was born and raised in Oakland, CA where upon graduation from high school he joined the Navy.  After serving his country he joined his father's printing company where he worked, and later owned, until retirement. He met his bride at church then took on the challenging yet rewarding task of helping raise her seven children.  After losing their home to the devastating Oakland fire in 1991 they moved closer to their children.
