Funeral Service Friday And Saturday For Fallen Hamilton County Deputy

Oct 29, 2020

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office has announced procession details for the funeral services for Deputy Adam McMillan.

He died last week after his cruiser collided with a Metro bus in Anderson Township earlier this month.

The procession begins around noon Saturday, and will travel north from Spring Grove Cemetery on Winton Road, then west on North Bend; north on Hamilton Avenue to Compton Road, and finally to Arlington Memorial Gardens.

A public visitation is set for Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Spring Grove Funeral Home.

Saturday's funeral service is closed to the public.

Spring Grove Avenue will be closed from Crawford to Winton during the services.

The Hamilton County Commissioners honored McMillan with a memorial proclamation Thursday.

"He was a person who donned a smile, that was to me - it was a window to his heart and the type of person he was," said Sheriff Jim Neil, speaking about McMillan to the county commission. "He had a smile that you would never forget."

Neil said for McMillian, being in law enforcement was a profession, not just a job.

"And he took advantage and became the best deputy that he could be," Neil said. "And took advantage of the training and the opportunities so that he could be a better servant to the people."

Neil said the 19-year sheriff's department veteran also had an interest in World War II history.

"So many times, I think law enforcement goes unsung in our community," said Commission President Denise Driehaus. "I know he died in the line of duty protecting the citizens of this county, and we just want to thank him for his service and recognize the service."
