steve-millerDANA POINT, CA.— Steve Miller (1950-2009), 58, a resident of San Clemente and former director of Saddleback College’s South Orange County Community College District’s Warehouse, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday afternoon. Miller suffered from a massive heart attack, according to close family friend and Saddleback Director of Fiscal Services, Carol Hilton.  Miller collapsed at his desk at Lemest Yacht Sales in Dana Point, and could not be revived by office associates or paramedics.

“Steve was an ‘action man,’ [who] enjoyed many sports and was in training for a bicycle ride planned in May from the Canadian Border to the Mexican Border, but the most impressive thing about Steve was his loving, caring side. He loved animals, and recently nursed a one-legged wild bird back to health. But most of all he loved his family, and his love for and dedication to [his wife] Sophie was very special,” said Hilton.
