Jack D. Millard, 74, owned home-building companies

Jack D. Millard, a former builder and longtime Parkville resident, died at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care on Feb. 7 of complications from a broken hip. The Parkville resident was 74.

Mr. Millard was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., and moved to Baltimore in 1950.


He attended the University of Maryland, College Park and later owned Apex Construction Co. and IMS Construction Co. He was a former president of the Home Builders Association of Maryland.

Mr. Millard retired from home building in the 1990s but was still working as a notary and handling real estate settlements.


He enjoyed attending the theater, singing and dancing.

A funeral Mass was offered Saturday at Our Lady of Grace Roman Catholic Church in Parkton.

Surviving are his wife of 13 years, the former Julia A. Estevel; three sons, Keith R. Millard of Randallstown, Jack A. Millard of Parkton and Christopher Millard of Ruxton; a daughter, Allison Marie Millard of Philadelphia; two stepsons; and nine grandchildren. His marriage to the former Rose Marie Acosta ended in divorce.

For the record

An obituary in Tuesday's editions misspelled the name of the deceased, Jack J. Millard, and incorrectly reported two other aspects of his life. Mr. Millard moved to Baltimore in the 1950s and lived in the Lauraville neighborhood. The Sun regrets the errors.
