Garrett Pearson Miler

17 novembre 199510 juin 2021

Garrett Pearson Miler, 25, passed away on Thursday, June 10th in Nashville, TN. A native Nashvillian, Garrett was born on November 17, 1995 to Scott and Lori Miler and attended St. George’s Kindergarten, St. Paul Christian Academy and graduated from Montgomery Bell Academy. At MBA Garret excelled in sports (football, wrestling, & baseball), math and German. He played football from an early age and loved being a member of the offensive line for the Big Red. His love of baseball persisted throughout his life and he looked forward to playing slow pitch softball with his best friends every Thursday night. He spent his college career at his much beloved alma mater, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is remembered as a brother in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity where he forged many lasting friendships. He graduated with a bachelors degree in Finance and Economics in 2018. Upon graduation, he returned to Nashville where he was a successful Commercial Real Estate Broker with Marcus & Millichap.

He is beloved and remembered for his incredible sense of humor, undeterred loyalty, unconditional love and universal acceptance of his friends. Garrett never turned away from anyone in need of help; his depth of compassion for all people far exceeded that of many his age. He loved music of all kinds, and was known to introduce friends to new and obscure songs and artists. He loved animals of all kinds and adoption was especially important to him. He was an avid reader of history and J.R.R Tolkien, whose works he adored.

Garrett is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Judith Means Ladebauche, and his fraternal grandmother Barbara Luhring Miler and fraternal grandfather Martin Conry Miler. Garrett is survived by his parents Lori Ladebauche Miler and Stuart “Scott” Miler; his brother Conry Scott Miler and soon to be sister in law Carolyn “Ivy” Larkin; maternal grandfather Frederick John Ladebauche; aunts and uncles Michelle Ladebauche, Andrew Ladebauche (Ashley); Gail Luhring Miler, Timothy Conry Miler (Melanie); Eric Martin Miler; Joseph Edwards Miler (Nicole); and cousins Thomas Jackson, Wesley Miler, Lola Miler, Ava and Tucker Ladebauche.

I did not know Garrett very well. I met him once, through business, as well as speaking on the phone a few times. He seemed very polite, clean-cut and a gentleman. You could tell he was well raised, unlike so many of his generation, even from the affluent families. After reading the comments, of his friends, I realized I was correct, in my impression of Garrett. How fortunate all of you were, to have spent those precious moments, in time together!
When I heard the tragic news, of his passing, I, like I’m sure everyone that knew him, was shocked! 25 years old! But, I want to take this tragedy, as a reminder, of how short all our lives are. We’re all going to die. It’s not a matter of if, but when. It’s what we do with our lives, from our first breath, to our last, that matters. I think most of us often forget that, especially me!
To his dear family, please try to let your fondest memories, of Garrett, get you through your most difficult pain now. My deepest sympathies to you all.

Garrett was the kinda guy that would give the shirt off his back to you if you needed it. (Literally I bet most of his friends have some of his clothes)

He was the kinda guy that when he walked into a room everyone that didn’t know him wanted to get to know him and strived for his friendship.

He was the kinda guy that could tell anyone of his close friends the honest truth and what they needed to hear better than anyone else could. Brutally honest, and always trying to better his friends by being that way.

He was the funniest guy in our friend group and no one wanted to tell him to give him that satisfaction.

He had very specific friendships with everyone of his friends that was, more times than not, unique to only him and that other friend. And he has so many friends so it’s kinda remarkable that he could do that.

But when you needed him to be serious and give advice he would be there to do that as well.

You could hangout with him for days, months, even years and never get tired of his company or friendship. Ever. And I think he’s the only friend I’ll ever have that was like that.

If you were at an event and everyone you knew was there but him, you’d call him and be upset until he got there because it wasn’t ever a complete group unless Garrett was there having a beer next to you.

He was a better friend than I ever gave him credit for and I will always regret not telling him more how much he meant to me as a best friend.

He is so loved and will never be forgotten.
Rest In Peace to one of my forever best friends.

I had the opportunity to live with Garret for about 4-5 months. We were both waiting for our apartment complex in Knoxville to be finished and were living in the SAE house in the meantime. Unbeknownst to Garrett I wasn’t doing great overall, but every single day he made sure to see how I was doing and check in on me. On a particularly down day for me after a weekend of poor decisions, Garrett came into my room and gave me a hug and told me that he loved me and challenged me to be better. It meant so much to me, and was the little kick I needed to get myself back in check. Thank you Garrett for loving me when I didn’t love myself, thank you for the late night madden sessions, thank you for always making sure I was alright, thank you for being a true gentlemen. I love you man, and so do countless others.

My best friend and the best person that has walked this earth. I’ll forever hold him with me but forever will be devastated. Funniest most real human being we all knew. ❤️ You GMi and fly high, I know you’ll be looking over me for as long as I have left on this earth but can’t wait to be together again.
