Scott Miller

June 17, 1956 — December 10, 2022

Lowell Scott Miller unexpectedly passed away at home on December 10, 2022. He was born on June 17, 1956, at Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, UT. Scott grew up in Provo, where he attended the local schools: Timpanogos for elementary, Dixon for Junior High, and Provo for High School. He was a BYU Cougar, true-blue through and through, and started a degree in History at Brigham Young University before leaving to serve a 24-month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Harrisburg, PA mission. It was there he met his sweetie, Elizabeth Louise Cays.

 

After returning to Provo and BYU from his mission in 1977, Scott continued to woo Lizzie long-distance until she said yes. They were married and sealed on December 27, 1978, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Manti temple. Over the succeeding years, Scott worked in the furniture business and the growing family moved from Provo to Billings, MT for two years and from there to Albuquerque, NM for another nine years before returning to UT, this time to their current home in American Fork.

 

Throughout his life, Scott was dedicated to serving the Lord and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He truly believed that he best served the Lord by serving his fellow man, and he built bonds of love and service that have withstood the passage of time and changes in callings and ward boundaries. Once he knew you, he never forgot you. Scott loved people, he loved talking to people and being around people and sharing stories with people. Most of all, he wanted people to know they mattered.

 

When it came to hobbies Scott was well-varied: he loved reading, a pastime he passed to all of his children. Golfing was his passion, and he is likely a little upset he missed his annual Bandon Dunes golf trip. He enjoyed watching basketball and football, and always cheered for the Cougars. We have a number of his scenic photography prints from his frequent nature drives, as well as many wonderful memories from camping trips, hikes, 4th of July celebrations, and canyon dinners.

 

Scott is survived by his sweetie, Liz, and their 4 children: Chad (Katie), Brandon (Tory), James (Melissa), and Kate, all of whom reside in Utah Valley, as well as a legacy of 7 grandchildren and a number of grand-pets. In addition, he is survived by his older brother, Sheldon (Barbara), and many nieces and nephews. He was greeted on the other side by his mom, Blanche Thomas Miller, his dad, Lowell Storrs Miller, his sister Marianne Miller, and his father-in-law John Bennett Cays, as well as a thunderous herd of beloved pets from the Rainbow Bridge.

 

A viewing will be held from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Sunday, December 18, 2022, at Anderson and Sons Mortuary at 49 East 100 North in American Fork, UT. An additional viewing from 9:45 a.m.-10:45 a.m. will precede the funeral services which will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, December 19, 2022, at the LDS Chapel on the corner of 100 East and 300 North in American Fork, UT.

 

Immediately following the service, we will hold a celebration of life to share stories, food, tears, and laughter in commemoration of the wonderful man we all came to know and love.
