Obituary For Timothy James Millard

Timothy J. Millard, 62, beloved husband of Lisa Silvia Millard, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021 after a lengthy illness.

A son of the late Rev. Mr. Charles E. Millard, M.D. and Mildred Lowney Millard, he was born and raised in Warren, where he lived most of his life; most recently he was a resident of East Providence.

Tim was much loved by his large family. "He had a huge heart and a gentle disposition," said one brother. "He always looked out for me, even when I didn't need it."

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his stepson Gary Chandler, daughter-in-law Heather Chandler, and grandchildren Mackenzie, Penelope, and Dominic; his sister, Mary Catherine Topp (Thomas); brothers Charles E. Millard, Jr. (Mary), John F. Millard (Maria Horvath), Daniel J. Millard, and James M. Millard (Kris); and nieces Christy Nadalin, Cara Cromwell, MaryElise Topp, Greer Millard, Ella Millard, Vanessa Pires, Alicia Coffey, Ashley Espada, and nephews T.C. Topp and Kevin Pimental. He was predeceased by his brother Vincent J. Millard.

An expert craftsman and woodworker, Tim established and ran the cabinet shop at Charles E. Millard, Inc., where he worked for many years. "He was an incredibly skilled cabinetmaker," said one longtime colleague. "There wasn't anything he couldn't build with his hands." Even after illness forced him to retire, he would regularly stop by the shop in his travels and check in.

Besides his work, Tim's faith was very important to him; he was a parishioner of St. Mary's Church in Bristol and a longtime Friend of Bill W. He was a doting dogfather to Murray, and especially Norm, who accompanied Tim everywhere.

The real love of his life, though, was Lisa, whom he married on April 6, 1996. Together, they enjoyed many happy years, and her devoted care kept him comfortable in his last days.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, Oct. 2 at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's Church in Bristol, followed by a celebration of life in the parish hall. Burial will be private.
