James Greg Millett of Bethesda, MD, passed away Tuesday, August 27, 2019, surrounded by his family. Greg was born January 23, 1945 (1-23-45) in Brooklyn, NY to Lorraine and Jim Millett. He moved to the Washington, D.C. area about 50 years ago, where he met his wife, Mary Ann. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann and their four children: Leigh Millett Castro (Javier); Bryan Millett (Elizabeth); Carley Gutierrez (Xavier); and Devin Millett. He is also survived by five adoring grandchildren: Ayanna, Lucia, Ava, Mateo and Caroline. A memorial service will be held on Friday, September 6 at 10:00 a.m. at Little Flower Catholic Church in Bethesda, MD.

Greg brought light and laughter to our lives. As a father, he was present, patient and bigger than life. He somehow made the mundanity of everyday life fun and exciting. He sang into vacuum cleaners with us, took us cross-country skiing through Brookmont, created unique worlds and stories, attended countless sporting events, skated with us on the frozen canal, and was always good for sharing a laugh or a giggle. Before he was a husband, father and grandfather, his adventures included being a bat boy for the Brooklyn Dodgers, starting a dating service in college, being a ski patrol in upstate New York, hanging in a Woodstock cafe with [unnamed] folk singers, and countless other experiences we didn’t get a chance to hear.

He spent much of his career serving people in need, at the most vulnerable times in their lives. He did this in a humble and unassuming way. He was decent at his core. He left us way too soon, but he leaves a legacy of love, light, service and humility for us to carry with us every day. We love you.
