Lake Forest California


On Sunday, August 29th, 2021, Scott Miller, beloved husband, brother, grandfather, and friend passed away at the age of 77.

Scott was born September 1943 in Oregon to his parents, Melva and Otto Miller. On June 25, 1965 he wed his lovely bride, Sue. Scott honorably served his country as a young man in the United States Marine Corps. His time in service provided him with lifelong friendships that he cherished.

Sue and Scott settled in Southern California, in the City of Lake Forest. They shared a love for adventure and traveled all over the world together. They also shared an immense love for animals, taking in and caring for many cats throughout their lives.

Professionally, Scott excelled in the field of computer engineering, pioneering various mini-computers and setting standards for equipment in the safety industry. Some of his earlier work included working on the components for the computers later used in the Moon Landing.

They also went on to become “adoptive grandparents” to two children, Andrew and Ashley, whom they met through the local church. Though Andrew and Ashley would tell you their bond with both Sue and Scott is one of the strongest any family could have, later in life, Scott went on to formally adopt both Andrew and Ashley.

Scott was an incredibly kind, intelligent, fun loving, giving, and passionate man. He made a positive impact on everyone he met. His employees have said of him that he was the best boss they ever had and an incredible mentor. He always put his team members first and ensured they were properly recognized for their efforts. Both his grandchildren, Andrew and Ashley, are incredibly thankful for the love, never ending generosity, and guidance he continually provided. His sisters recall him referring to himself as, “The Eternal Optimist,” even through his last months with his health struggles and hospitalizations, he fought hard to stay with us. His sisters can tell you that he was one of the most caring and interesting people they knew, and they will always be grateful for the love of their Big Brother.

His family will be forever thankful that they were able to have him in his own home for his final days, surrounded by their love.

His passing was preceded by that of his wife, Sue, in 2014. He is survived by his two sisters Kris and Linda, their spouses and many nieces and nephews; his grandson Andrew; and granddaughter Ashley, along with her husband and their two children. He is also survived by his wonderful long time neighbors, Triconex colleagues a.k.a. his “homies,” and his two sweet kitties, Tinker and Pepper.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on October 9th, 2021, at O’Connor Mortuary in the chapel, located at 25301 Alicia Pkwy, Laguna Hills, CA 92653.

The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the ASPCA through their website to honor Scott’s love of animals. You may also donate via phone by calling (800) 628-0028.

  1. He was a lovely man, I am honored to have had the pleasure of knowing him. May God bless his family.

    My Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and welcome you into My presence, so that you also may be where I am John 14:2

  2. My condolences. Scott was a beloved patient by me, as well as our clinic staff. Despite his health struggles, he had a wonderful attitude and such a kind disposition- and we shared the eternal optimism! Will gladly donate to ASPCA to honor him, and my best wishes to his family.

  3. Scott was a wonderful, interesting man of generous spirit. He always had an interesting story to tell and was passionate about the well being of those around him and the world and humanity in general. His generosity was illustrated when we first moved to California from England in 2000. My UK company were late paying my housing allowance and despite having known us for a short period of time, Scott wrote a personal check to cover our rent without hesitation when he heard. Thankfully, we never had to cash it but our story shows the kindness in his heart.
    Working for Scott was always a pleasure – he was respectful of everyone and made it fun. After he retired, we always looked forward to lunches with Scott as they were always interesting and entertaining. We will miss him a lot and offer our condolences to his family and friends.

    Uncle Scott was the most uplifting and inspiring man. His calm and patience legendary, his thoughtfulness and true goodness infectious. Leading by example, he helped set me on a path long ago that has enriched my life in numerous ways. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
