Eli was a young man full of life. He was born on November 17, 2006, to Shanda Scharnowske Miller and Curtis Miller in Denton, Texas. When Eli moved to Bismarck, he attended school at Roosevelt Elementary School, Horizon Middle School, and Century High School. At the time of his passing, he worked for Dan’s Supermarket in Bismarck.  Dirt bikes, camping, bonfires, and tinkering with cars and motors were his passion. He loved his truck and was looking forward to summer school as an incoming sophomore. He planned to enter the military upon graduation.

Eli is survived by his loving mother, Shanda; his father, Curtis; and his younger brother, Noah. Also left behind are his grandmothers, Dawn Brady and Becky Miller; his grandfather, Mark Scharnowske, and great grandmother, Lynn Scharnowske Lafiner.  He is loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Eli is now in heaven with his grandfather, Buddy Miller; his great grandparents, Pete and Judy Hoffmann and Jim Scharnowske; as well as great great grandparents, Bill and Kay Braxmeyer.

Rest in love nephew….. love Aunt Ashley

I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Gods Blessings upon the entire Miller family! Absent the Body and present with the Lord!

I am so sorry. No parent should ever have to go through this. I extend my deepest condolences to the family.

Your life was taken to early my nephew. Jesus needed you home.
Praying heaven over my family Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.”
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

I am so very sorry to hear of Eli’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and family. Fly high Eli. Watch over your Mom, Brother, Dad and family. Rest in Peace.
