    I'm deeply saddened by Mark's passing but I'm happy for him being reunited with April. When they used to attend the SE shoot together, their love for each other radiated from them and now they're together again.

    Don't forget all our money he spent posting PSA blowouts and other great deals!

    That was the intent. Losing someone isn't a happy occasion, however, I see no reason NOT to remember some of the fun that person brought to us all.
    I know for a fact that, on more than one occasion, I told BC that I would be afraid to look through his browser history, with some of the things he found and posted.

    Mrs. BC and he gave my SIL crap at the SE Shoot about when he was going to marry my daughter.  Guess it worked.

    Rest in peace my friend. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to meet you and April at the SE. You will be missed.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    He served his country both in uniform and as a DOD civilian, thereby giving true meaning to the word "service."  American life doesn't get any finer than that.  He'll be deeply missed.

    forum,hopefully, that will change someday. 
    I always looked forward to his response to my post.
    RIP, Big Chief

    I had the pleasure of spending the morning with him at a range near Ocala, Florida 4-5 years back, along with Wambli and another member of this forum. He was one of the nicest guys I have met. I regret I had not been able to attend another day at the range with him when he invited me 3 years ago. I will miss him.

    I don't have the words.  I always admired and respected BC.  He was one who could truly turn lemons into lemonade.

    I hope he and Mrs. Chief are together again, and happy.

    May you rest in peace, Chief.

    From Lagacy.com

    Mark Stephen "Big Chief" Millican, CWO3, US Army, Retired, 65 of Inverness, passed away 
    July 17, 2019 at his home under the loving care of his family and Vitas Hospice. Mark was born in Oak Ridge, TN, on September 11, 1953, to the late Thomas Ben and Violet (Smith) Millican. Mark served 20 years active duty in the Army and an additional 15 years as a civilian Logistics Specialist for the Army. 
    Mark enjoyed spending time with his family and his pets. He was known for his sense of humor and his knack for finding the absolute worst movie on television at any given time and making his family watch it. He loved listening to music from the 1960s (Bob Dylan, in particular), watching Fox News, reloading, target practice and being surrounded by nature. 
    Left to cherish his memory are his daughters: Mandy Millican of Pasco County, FL and Elizabeth Millican of Los Angeles, CA; his brother: Thomas Millican, Jr. of La Belle, FL, and his sister, Gail Millican Thiel of Jacksonville, FL. Mark was preceded in death by his wife of 43 years, April, on January 21, 2016. 
    A Celebration of Life Service for Mark, will be conducted on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 12 Noon, from the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home of Inverness, with Mark's brother, Thomas Millican, Jr., officiating. Burial will follow at 1:30 PM, with Military Honors at the Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, FL. Arrangements are under the direction of the Chas E. Davis Funeral Home with Crematory, Inverness, FL
