In Loving Memory of James MacMillan III: 1942 -2022


James Blaine MacMillan III, M.D. passed away on Sept. 4, 2022, at age 80, at his home in Washington state. 

”Dr. Mac” as all his OB/GYN patients and residents called him, had a busy private practice in Honolulu, Hawaii from 1983 to 2005. Upon his retirement he enjoyed working on his ranch property in Washington, caring for his horses and volunteering as a basketball team doctor for Centralia Community College. He loved basketball, as a player, fan and coach. 

Dr. MacMillan III was always a cowboy at heart, having been raised on cattle ranches in Wyoming. He could always be seen dressed in Levi jeans, western belt buckle, cowboy boots and a Stetson hat. The love of the western way of life he happily passed on to his family. 

James MacMillan’s journey through life included being a medic in the National Guard, an L.P.N. and a Peace Corps volunteer in Micronesia. He was passionate about his medical work in women’s health and loved delivering babies. He took his Scottish heritage with great pride and loved researching the “MacMillan Clan”. 

James is survived by his wife Lynn of 57 years; daughters Leiá Twiqq-Smith and Kaya MacMillan; and grandchildren Ryan, Evan, Aidan Twiqq-Smith and Kierra MacMillan Fox. 

We salute Dr. James MacMillan III, husband, father, grandfather, and medical practitioner and the many lives he touched throughout his career and life.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
