Scott Allen Nahmias was born on April 20,1950, in Indianapolis, to Morris P. Nahmias and Cecile R. (Weinberg) Nahmias.   He grew up on the east side of Indianapolis and graduated from North Central High School and Vincennes University. 

Scott was preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his sister, Nancy D. Thompson; brother, Paul R. Nahmias, DDS (Sarah); and nieces and nephews, Leslie Thompson (Ben Pecar), Greg Thompson (Lani), Leah Nahmias, Emily Nahmias Brown (Adam), David Nahmias and Michael Nahmias.  He also leaves behind a wealth of very dear friends. 

Scott was a lifelong member of Etz Chaim Congregation in Indianapolis where he was an active participant and volunteer, lending many years of service to the annual Etz Chaim picnic. Scott also was a long time participant in the Indianapolis Chevra Kadisha, which provides sacred burial rites.  He was a kind and gentle soul who always brought a smile to your face and lived a simple life that was richer than most.

Despite his many health challenges in recent years, he continued to give to others. He will fondly be remembered as someone who would help in any way he was able, who could put a smile on your face, and asked very little of others.  He was an example of a life well lived.  

Funeral services will be Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Funeral Home, 11411 N. Michigan Road, Zionsville, IN 46077 at 11 AM.  Burial will follow in Etz Chaim Sephardic Cemetery.
