Raymond Eugene Mills, age 86, of Dover, passed away Tuesday, January 2, 2024, in Community Hospice Truman House, New Philadelphia, following a brief illness.

 

Born June 12, 1937, in Jewett, he was a son of the late Walter and Dorinda Masters Mills. Raymond graduated from Jewett High School, and went on to serve honorably with the United States Army.
