Millard Nussman died at the age of 92. He was buried in the City of Witt, Illinois Cemetery. At the age of 90 he could hold onto a small tree and hold himself straight out. He was hard of hearing. If you offered him anything at all to eat, he would always tell you "No- I don't care for any" but he was reaching for it all the time. He was a short, small man -- about 5' 6" tall and maybe 140 pounds. He was fun and very pleasant. He lived his last years with his daughter and son-in-law, Grace and Vern Ford who are also buried in Witt Cemetery.
