Millard James Lander, 86, of Fulton passed away at his home on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

He was born on January 10, 1933 in Fulton, the son of the late Harvey Lester Lander and the late Alma Catherine (Willenbrink) Lander.

Millard proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. Upon returning home, he worked at Ovid Bell Press for twenty years. He owned Kings Row from 1978 until his retirement and did side work as an auctioneer. A man of great faith, he was a member of St. Peter Catholic Church and served as Parish Council President.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by daughter, Kyle Harris; brother, Louis Lander; sisters, Margaret Stack, and Mary Ruth Taylor; and granddaughter, Christine Ewing.
