Owen was entering 8th grade at Chautauqua Lake Central School. Like many other 13-year-old boys he loved playing video games, sports and building anything with Legos.
His family remembers his great sense of humor and how he enjoyed making people smile.
Following the loss of Owen, friends and family members have established the Owen J. Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor his memory. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a graduating Chautauqua Lake senior who illustrates extreme kindness and goes out of their way to do the right thing.
A fundraiser for the scholarship will be held on October 13. The Spaghetti Dinner and Basket Raffle will take place at the Ripley Hose Company from 4pm to 7pm, 50/50 tickets will be for sale that evening or prior to the event.
