To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of longtime Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Frank C. Mills III on his passing at the age of 74.
A member of the Georgia Bar since 1973, Judge Mills began his legal career as chief assistant district attorney and as district attorney prior to his appointment as Superior Court judge in 1981. He was re-elected as judge eight times. He also served the legal profession and justice system as a member of the State Bar of Georgia Board of Governors, as District Administrative Judge and as a member of the Judicial Council.
The exemplary life and career of Judge Frank Mills is an inspiration to all Georgia lawyers and judges. We appreciate and will remember his many contributions to the cause of justice in our state.

President, State Bar of Georgia
