  1. In life we often say “when one door closes another one opens” and for Scott I believe that door will lead him to a wonderful place full of an eternity of smiles and happiness as he shared with all he came in contact with including me. We will all miss you Scott.

  2. Scott, Your unexpected departure is a tragedy; You have left so much behind. Scott do not worry for these wordly possessions, but please do know that your greatest assets, your sons, are in great hands. I, as well as the rest of us friends, will continue to care for them as we always have; To help and look after them, as brothers of my own. Rest in peace, Gary Hara

  6. Scotty Scotty thank you for your effort and perseverance of bringing our two companies togheter and work as a family. I’m going to miss the early phone calls rearding our projects. Rest in peace we will follow you sooner or later.

  7. Scott was the first person I ever sold anything to when I started at Waterway over 16 years ago. He was working for Jem Mfg. Since joining Waterway a couple of years ago he has helped us in many ways. I will personally miss him so much. I will miss our intense conversations about life, work and what it all means. He loved his boys! He loved Jill. My deepest condolences to Travis, Seth and all of his family and friends.

  8. Scotty, You will be so very dearly missed, I was very sad when I received this memorial announcement. I will always remember your dynamic smile and the laughter shared during those few, random times I was fortunate to run into you. My heart goes out to all of those you loved and may time heal each of them and provide peace. I will always remember you my friend!

  9. Scott – We have shared 26 years of a wonderful friendship, thank you… There is nobody on this earth quite like you, you lived life to its fullest. I will never forget our many laughs, the talks and your honesty. Nobody could make me smile quite like you could. I am forever grateful for the many unforgettable memories you’ve brought to my life. I can not begin to express the sadness felt in my heart these past few days, the world will never be the same and I am going to miss you so much. Your smile and spirit will live in my heart forever. Love you,

  10. Scott, You are a great person and a funny one too. I wont forget any of the good times I had with you and Jill the past years. Or when you let me drive the tractor. 🙂 You are missed!

  11. It’s hard for me to express how much Scott ment to me as a young girl. Growing up he spent a lot of time at our house and I will always remeber how he just walked into our house. Never knocked and I would hear his voice and come running to see him. His smile and laugh were like sunshine to me. I’m so graful god gave me the last year and half with him because it ment the world to me. He still had the sunshine and I will miss him so very much…I truly loved being in his company. I will miss his views on life, sense of humor, beatutiful smile, warm heart, his laugh, his hugs…..I love you Scott Miller and I’m going to miss you with all my heart.

  12. What a shock to have gotten this news. Scott, both Bob and I have so many fun memories of you from our days at Millikan and beyond. We will always remember you for the fun and great guy you are. I am so lucky that I got to see you last month while you waited to get your haircut on 2nd St. You seemed like you were on top of your game and I was so glad to hear that. Little did I know that that would be the last time. I wish your family and your boys peace.

  13. Scotty, Your dynamic personality and intensity led to your professional success, but your passion for the loves in your life kept you grounded and were the keys to your personal successes. From one salesman to another….Safe travels my friend…Until we meet again.

  14. I was very Sad when I heard the news. I remember meeting you(Scott) and Jill about 7yrs ago thru Nadiah and the Minute I met you what did you do but Put a SMILE on my Face and Made me Laugh and you will always be remembered and Have a Place in My heart. I will See you One Day Scott. Luv Always, Summer Luciano (Nadiah’s Cousin)

  15. Scott, We go way back. We used to ride our bikes together everyday to JR high school. You were my best friend and I have some great memories of those days. My heart goes out to your family and may you rest in Peace my friend.

  16. Scott, my adopted little brother. We shared 25 years of friendship,love,kindness,laughter, long talks, and mutual respect. My heart will always have a place for you. Peace be with you my brother. Love, your other sister.

  17. Scott, Sadly I haven’t seen you in 25 years, but when I heard the news my heartached like we were still great buddies growing up on Monogram Ave. so many years ago. Your singing and dancing to Elvis will always live on with me Love ya Scott

  18. Scott, I was so glad to have met you and called you a friend. You truely will be missed. God bless your family and friends. We will meet again.

  19. To Scotts Family; I did not know scott, but I am so very sorry for your loss. I was at the accident. I did all I knew how to try to save him. I have been struggling with this for days. I want you to know I rubbed his hair back and tried to talk to him. I stayed with him until they took him to the hospital. He passed peacefully and not alone. I held his arm and prayed for him. Im so very sorry I could not do more for him and you. Im so sorry, Im so sorry

  20. Scott you truly will be missed. Miss talking to you about Redondo Beach (my hometown). Cant believe we will not see you walking through L.A. Spas doors anymore. You brought sunshine & laughter to wherever you went. Praying for your families comfort and peace during this time of trial. We will meet again my friend.

  21. I knew scott in little league all the way thru Jr high and HS. Scott was always one of the coolest people I knew and he never changed inside or out. I last saw him at our 10 reunion and he looked exactly the same and had that big grin of a smile. Always positive with a good soul and spirit, he will truly be missed by all that knew him. This is a shock to me as I know it is to all that knew Scott. Only the good die young! My deepest sympathy to his family and his children, don’t worry, your dad is in a good place, it’s us left behind that feel all the pain. Be strong and know that your dad is an angel and will always be watching out for you! God Bless you all Anthony Ochoa

  22. I’m really at a loss for words. I’m still waiting for the phone call that explains someone was mistaken. Scott was one of the few people you meet in life that can bring a smile to your face without an effort. I feel extreemly fortunate that Karen took time to re-establish our frinedships after many years apart. Becoming fast friends…I’m thankful for the time we have had with Scott. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to his family, and thank you for sharing him with us.

  23. My deepest sympathies in hearing the news about Scott. We went to H.S. together and I remember him playing football and sharing a few classes. Thank you for the video tribute – what a wonderful way to celebrate a life! His spirit will live on in those he loved. My best to all his family and friends during this difficult time.

  24. I remember the first time I met Scott when I was about 13 years old…about 27 years ago! I walked into the Weeks’ house on Carfax and there was Scott, Shelby, Steph and a few other people playing cards at the kitchen table. They all seemed “larger than life” to me…all grown up even though they were only about 16 or 17! I clearly remember Scott laughing and enjoying himself! Over the years I would bump into him here and there around the neighborhood and at Weeks’ family functions. It’s been a few years since I have seen him.. but his wit, sarcasm and charm (and his obvious good looks!) could make anyone smile. He was a lot of fun to be around and I’m sad that he has left this earth so soon. My heart goes out to his family, especially Seth and Travis. What a tragic loss for you. He loved you both so much and you WILL see him again someday. Peaceful days to you all. Stella

  25. I am deeply shocked and saddened. I have fond memories of Scott from the yacht club and of helping my family load gifts into the car after our wedding at KHYC. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone that is suffering from this tragic loss.

  26. I absolutely cannot believe how sad this is, Scott will be truly missed. His humor, heart of gold, and absolute love of life. It has been way too long since we’ve seen eachother and I am very sad so much time passed with no communication. I will always be thankful for our friendship and cherish the times we were there for eachother in high school. Scott was a wonderful friend to me and I will miss him dearly. God bless your boys everyone’s hearts are going out to them.

  27. When we met we were all “in transition” at those apartments on Molino…me, you and Harmony. I’d give just about anything to ride our bikes to Broadway…bum a smoke off of you…get one of those amazing hugs you always had ready for me when I’d visit…see that smile and those eyes staring at me, really interested in how I’ve been. That weekend the 3 of us hung out on the boat and in Redondo is one of the best times of my life. I still tell people about that weekend. The next time you call me to come out to play, I really will. I promise. Be at peace my friend. You are loved and missed.

  28. I only met Scott 1 time, in the early ’90’s. I am married to Caren Conrad, a friend of Scott’s since high school, and Scott dropped in on us in San Francisco on a trip back from Sacramento. Caren had told me about him, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him. Over the years, Caren kept in touch with Scott, and I feel as though I “knew” him just as if he and I had been buddies all that time. I am distraught that someone who had so much to live for and had so much joy to give to others has been taken from all of us. But, I console myself with the thought that if I am so stricken with his loss, how much could he have meant to those who knew him so much better than I? Doesn’t that sum up a man’s worth and his life?? — that being how much he meant to others? I can only conclude that it IS what sums up anyone’s existence. And for Scott—- Job Well Done. -Morse Wheeler

  29. I am in shock to hear the news,what a way to find out.I new scot from junior life guards,jr high and high school. i had’nt seen Scott in 25 years.I am so sory to hear this news.God be with you and your family my friend..

  30. I am so sorry for your loss. I met Scott when i started working at Artisian Spas in 1998. He was always joking around and making light of bad situations. I don’t remember if the boys remember me, but I met them at Scott’s and Mike Copeland’s house out in Silver Lakes and I played with boys because they kept saying they were bored,little did they know what a crazy lady I was. You all are in my prayers. God Bless.

  31. Scott – I couldn’t ask for a more loving, supportive cousin than you. I am so grateful for the memory of our fun times and chats together. The pain of knowing our family and my future children won’t have you as a part of their lives hurts the most. It will never be the same without you – I know that you will be with our family on my wedding day, but it sure won’t be as fun without you to liven up the party! I miss you and love you always.

  32. WOW!!! Some people you never forget!!! I went to Millikan with Scott and I sure we attended Stanford Jr. High together (its been a while). First “my heartfelt condolences to the family”. Second; I want his sons to know something, that they already know, “They had a very cool father”! I knew Scott for only a few years, (I got kicked out of Millikan), but we did get to laugh and exchange good times. I am a Black guy, and we would always tell Scott that he was the coolest White guy we knew. When I saw his name in the paper last week; I knew there was only one Scott Miller!; then I saw that cool graduation picture, with that smug/confident look, and knew we had lost another great soul. Scott, I will always remember you; and I will let our friends know that you have gone home before us. Love always Wieland Parham; class of 83′.

  33. Im deeply sorry for the loss of Scott. I first met him in the early 80’s working together side by side in a spa company. We shared alot of good times, we were best of friends through the years. I remember when the company we worked for moved to Victorville and it brought good memories and friend that ended up being a brother to me. I will sure miss Scott but his memories and happiness that he brought on to my family and I will never be forgotten.

  34. I am saddened by your sudden departure. I am also sad that our paths did not cross after High School. May your family and boys forever remember your smile.

  35. Scott was a very special friend to me through the last 25 years, I hadn’t seen him in over ten of those years and just lately reconnected with him. Kindred spirits, I guess…seeing him felt as if no time had passed at all. He always had the gift of bringing me to smile when there seemed at times nothing to smile about…I am saddened time cut short making new memories. As the song goes, “I’ll keep moving through the dark with you in my heart”…my dear sweet friend. My sympathies to his boys and family, I know he would have been so proud of them on Thursday. He will be forever missed.

  36. Scott, I miss you so much it hurts. It is so hard for me to know I can’t pick up the phone to call you and hear your voice. When I was down you are who I called. When I had a funny story, you are who I called. I miss the banter we had. I miss being able to call you and say hey I am coming out for the weekend and when I did I miss our late night talks whether they were heart to hearts or just reminiscing. I miss you coming to AZ and being all crazy and again those long talks. I could truly tell you everything. I miss that look in your eyes when you talked about Travis and Seth, you were so proud of the men they were becoming. I truly just miss you and wish I could hear your laugh or see your smile. I can’t wait to see you again and I know you will be waiting with a big smile and open arms. I know we have one late night talk still left. I miss you but I know you have some good company up there. Tell my dad I love him. Love you, your cousin. K

  37. My Condolences to the Miller family. Ingrid, Rene’ Seth and Travis, your son, brother,dad was an wonderful person with a very big heart who thought the world of you all. I am so saddened by this news..I cannot believe it. I was fortunate enough to have shared a part of my life with Scott he was an awesome guy. He will be missed by many. Till we meet again Scotty boy! God bless you and keep you safe. Forever, Le Ann

  38. I really can’t express just how sorry I am for all the family, especially Seth and Travis. Scott saw more in me, than I seen in myself. Scott gave me a job, gave me a home, but most important gave me the opportunity to become the man I am today. Thank you Scott. May you Rest in Peace my friend.

  39. My sincere condolences to the Miller Family. I am very sad to hear of Scott’s tragic passing. I worked for Scott at Majestic in 1997 and really looked up to him, I had a lot of fun times I’ll never forget. God bless you and comfort you in this difficult time.

  40. Dear Scotty Watty You have no idea what a big hole you have left in my heart. Just knowing that you were in this world made me feel safe, like I could always count on you if I needed you. I have learned so much about you in the past several weeks from your friends. You have touched the lives of so many people and left an indelible mark on their souls. I am so proud of the man you grew up to be. I love you so much and will miss you always. Your big sister, Rene’

  42. I am so sorry to hear of Scott’s passing. Scott and I met in Kindergarten. We were classmates through junior high. We were in Junior Lifeguards and played night basketball together. I will always remember Scott as a leader amongst his peers. The world is a lesser place without him. For his family, I am so sorry for your loss.

  43. I got to know Scott through our work together at Waterway. Even though we were in different parts of the country – we got together at trade shows and spoke on the phone periodically about customers, etc. He was a fine young man and it was our pleasure to have him as a friend and co-worker. I am sorry we did not get to know him better. Our Sincere Sympathies to his family and friends. Larry & David Savage

  44. Dear Scotty, I was so terribly sorry to hear about your passing. I knew you 25 years ago and hadn’t seen you since. I was just a little girl, but you came into my life at a very chaotic time and you were always able to make me laugh, hard. I have nothing but warm and fond memories of you. Thank you. My heart goes out to your family.

  45. I went to Millikan with Scott. I heard of his passing and wanted to send my condolences to Scott’s son’s, his family and friends. My heart goes out to all of you. May God comfort you during this difficult time. Erika (Pesch) True

  46. SCOTT YOU ARE AN AWESOME MAN, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE GOOD TIMES. I OWE YOU ALOT, ALL THE ADVICE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME HAS HELPED ME IN MANY WAYS. LOVE YOU MAN, HAVE A SHOT WAITING FOR ME!

  47. My deepest and profound sympathies to the Miller family. Scott was like a big brother to me at a time in my life when I really needed one. He was a great boss to work for. He had a way of making you want to be better at what it was you did. Most importantly, he was a great friend. I still miss all of those times we used to go motorcycle riding out at Bell Mountain. I learned many important things about life from Scott. I think the thing that was most appreciated was that he taught me to always enjoy life. You will never be forgotten. I will always honor you as an important figure in my life.

  48. Scott, you are my cousin and my best friend. You were always there for me through good times and bad. You were my confidant. You knew everything about me and still managed to love me. You always made me laugh even when I wanted to cry. I will miss your phone calls and your silly messages but most of all I will miss seeing your handsome face and smile and our heart to heart talks that we always had. I love you and will miss you bunches. Your little cousin, kier

  49. Scott, You will be missed by many! You knew how to make people smile:) My heart goes out to your family. Cyndi

  55. I am very sorry for the loss of Scott. He had a beautifull smile in his face every time he visited us. He was very professional and passionate in his work. I’ll keep praying for him in his journey to heaven.

  57. My heartfelt sympathies to Scott’s family and loved ones. It was good to work with him and I share with others the sadness in his loss. May God bless.

  58. For some unknown reason to me, you were on my mind a lot on Friday, the day before you left this life for eternal life. I was thinking about memories of you in High School, our 20 year reunion, but in particular I couldn’t stop thinking about a few conversations we had at LBCC. Your kindness, sincerity, smile and warmth made a footprint on my heart. What may have seemed like simple conversations about “life” made an everlasting impression. Those moments will be treasured forever. I hope you know all of the lives you touched Scott. May God be with you in heaven and with your family and loved ones here on earth.

  59. My thoughts and prayers are with Scott’s family. Scott will be sorely missed. I am fortunate enough to have had many great laughs and lasting memories of times spent with Scott. He was a very special person…..

  60. Scotts friendship and smiling face will be truly missed by his King Harbor Yacht Club family. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones. He was a lovely man.

  61. Mr. Happy, You and I have shared some great details of our lives and I will forever be thankful for that time with you. I pray that others now learn to appreciate what life puts in front of them.

  62. Scott- I know the pain of your passing will be less each day and all of us who knew you will be left with the imagine of your smiling face and the enthusiasm of your spirit. Your friend Art

  63. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. We hold a heavy heart and know you were very much loved by all you came in contact with-Much love,Kim & Marc Black

  64. Immense sorrow always comes with the passing of a loved one, but it is always the passing of a very special person, as Scott was, that hurts the most. My condolences go to his family and friends.

  65. It is virtually impossible to really grasp this loss of such a first rate person. Scott and I shared years of history and friendship. You€™ll be missed by many and my thoughts go out to the entire Miller family and his friends.

  66. I am so sorry to hear about Scott’s passing Renee! My profound and deepest condolences to you, your mom and the rest of your family for your untimely sorrow. It’s truly a sad day. Anna-Marie

  67. Scott will be missed by us all. I’m glad we were able to spend time with him and wish there were more people like him.
