Nick Scott Millis LUBBOCK-Nick Scott Millis of Lubbock passed away Thursday, April 9, 2015. Visitation will be Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Resthaven. Funeral services are Friday, April 17, 2015, at 1 p.m. in the Abbey Chapel at Resthaven. He was born Feb. 19, 1952, in Lebanon, OR, to the late John and Doris Millis. He moved numerous times across the country until stopping in Lubbock in April of 1974. He married Paula Michie on Feb. 23, 1980. He valued knowledge and education and encouraged others to never cease to learn. His most valued title was that of Registered Biosafety Professional (RBP). Nick was the guy everyone sought to provide answers. If he didn't know the answer, he knew how to find the answer. He enjoyed searching for information. He had a fascination with studying everything he could about the letter Q and words containing Q since he was 17 years of age. In recent years, he became enthralled in family genealogy and the stories of generations past. He was dedicated to his family who will miss his company and insight. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Doris Millis, and his son, Damon Millis. Nick is survived by his wife, Paula Millis; three daughters, Jemina (Bradley) Allen, Laryssa (Kevin) Cortez, and AhnnaBeth Millis; two granddaughters, Lauren Cortez and Kennedy Millis; one brother, Charles Millis; one sister, Carol Perez; one nephew, David Millis; three nieces, Jasmine (John ) Quiett, Jennifer (Mark) Bearden, and Michelle Perez; and a sister-in-law, Sara Michie.

It is sad that Nick is gone but it is joyous knowing that he is with God. In every conversation that I had with Nick, he immediately understood the issue and the approach to use to resolve the issue. Then he would make some reference to God. I appreciated talking with someone that openly doesn't mind talking about God.
