Scott D. Miller, 64, passed away on Sept. 26, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born in South Bend to Robert and Betty (Kopet) Miller. He married the love of his life, Kay Miller, on Aug. 8, 1992, in a beautiful family event in Plymouth.
After graduating from James Whitcomb Riley High School, he went on to earn a certificate from the U.S. Department of Labor in Tool and Die. He used those skills as a Journeyman for Capitol Technologies, becoming a Lead Journeyman Tool and Die Maker for 26 years. He recently retired from Conn-Selmer in Elkhart. He enjoyed hearing the instruments being played by musicians who frequented the facility.
He lived his life with passion. He was a devoted and loving parent to his three children. He had a serving heart who put others before himself. One of his lifelong passions were for airplanes and Union Pacific trains. He and Kay had property on Yellow River that they enjoyed hosting family and friends at for recreation. Hunting, fishing and trap shooting kept his interests. One of his greatest memories was a hunting trip he took with his brothers to Wyoming.
He was very proud of his children and their families. He always remained humble and kind through all of life’s trials and tribulations.
