Gary L. Mills

January 6, 1954 – September 27, 2020


Gary Lynn Mills, 66, of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Boerne, Texas, passed away September 27, 2020, after a short battle with pulmonary fibrosis of the lungs. 

Gary was born on January 6, 1954, in Corpus Christi, Texas. He was a successful businessman in the oil and gas industry. He served his country in the U.S. Army, where he graduated from jump school and proudly jumped in the 82nd Airborne. He also served his local community by supporting many nonprofit organizations such as The Clarity Child Guidance Center in San Antonio, Progeria Research Foundation, Teed Off at Cancer and many more.

He married the love of his life, Vickye Spruce Mills, in August of 1988. He was a loving father, paw paw and great-grandfather. He would light up a room with his smile and hugs and he loved to laugh and have a good time. 

He was preceded in death by Vickye Spruce Mills (wife), Rolfe Mills (father), Margaret Melton (mom) and Lane Craig (grandson).


Gary is survived by his significant other, Tina Rose; her two children, Joe and Miranda; his children, Taylor Mills and wife Lauren, Nick Mills and wife Sherri, Chris Graves and wife Brandi, Brady Crook and wife Lisa, and Brandi Burleson and husband Tommy; 14 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; and his siblings, Larry Mills of San Antonio and Sherry Carr of Friona, Texas.


For health and safety reasons, a private ceremony will be held for family only followed by a public service at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Clairty Child Guidance Center in memory of Gary Mills.
