Henry Mills, 87, was in a 'class by himself'
Hank," died Jan. 14 in Appleton at age 87 after an undisclosed illness.
Mills' father, Stewart C. Mills Sr., founded Mills Companies in Brainerd, Minnesota in 1922. The family later created an oil company and opened a dealership and auto parts stores. Henry Mills, his father and his brother, Stewart C. Mills Jr, founded Fleet Farm in 1955.

According to Gill, Henry Mills' passion was for helping others — especially kids — in the Fox Valley, quietly.
Gill was part of a group of professionals who joined Mills in 1982 to create the Valley Kids Foundation, an organization aimed at helping Fox Valley children with medical needs, education assistance and various recreational activities.
"The spot in his heart was for kids," Gill said. "There are hundreds of children here in the Valley whose lives have been changed for the better."
Maria Van Laanen, president of the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, said Mills was one of the "visionary community leaders" who contributed to a fundraising campaign for the arts facility.
"Henry was definitely a great visionary for our community and definitely a great attraction for businesses," she said.
According to his obituary, Mills, who was born in 1928, left the University of Minnesota with his brother in the late 1940s to work and live in Alaska. He later earned a bachelor's degree from Hamline University.
