Millard was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He was a member of St. Eloi Catholic Church. He enjoyed being in his workshop building and fixing things. He was always ready to help anyone. In later years he enjoyed riding down the bayous because it reminded him of the old days. He was most proud of the Caring for Others Award from Woodmen of the World for his and his wife’s work with Angels on Wheels. Millard will most be remembered as a good man.

The family would like to thank the staff of Journey Hospice, especially Amie Chauvin and Shawanda Bolden and the staff of The Medical Team, especially Nicole Sanderford and Mary Guillory.

Millard will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the Family of Millard James Marcel Sr.
