Matthew Miller, age 26, of Lebanon

Matthew Miller, age 26, of Lebanon, NJ passed away on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from an accidental overdose.

He was the loving son of Nancy More of Lebanon, NJ and Marc S. Miller of Lake Worth, FL.

Matthew graduated North Hunterdon High School in 2009. He was a general contractor working for his dearest friend, Cliff, of Battaglia Construction.

Matthew enjoyed drawing, skateboarding and playing paintball with his younger brother Jadon.  He was currently on a paintball team named, “Carl’s Commandos”.

Although, for the past couple years Matthew has been fighting to overcome addiction; he still had an unbreakable bond with his family.  His unconditional love and compassion was able to outshine this horrible disease, but heroin addiction is merciless, and we need to open up our hearts and minds to those who are still sick and suffering.

Matthew was a smart, talented, loving soul, who wanted to fight this addiction for the sake of his family, but unfortunately, he lost the battle and the reality of Matthew’s death is devastating to all who knew him.  No possible reason can justify this loss.

His immediate family includes his two brothers, Timothy Miller and Jadon Krisanda, two sisters, Sarah Miller and Rachel More, his niece Ava and nephew Jace of Lebanon, NJ, along with many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends both in NJ and FL, including his maternal grandparents, Fred R. Neubarth and Brenda J. Neubarth of Boynton Beach, FL.  He is also survived by the expectant mother, Skylar Lee of Hampton, NJ.  Matthew’s first child, a baby girl, is due May 31, 2017.

Calling hours will be Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 2-4pm and 7-9pm and also on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 11am to 12noon.  Funeral service will take place on Friday at 12noon.  During the funeral service, guests will be welcome to share a story or memory about Matthew.  All will take place at Scarponi-Bright Funeral Home, 26 Main Street, Lebanon, NJ.  Interment will be private.
