James Miles was a devout Christian and was a member of Three Oaks Church. A fun loving man, who had a heart of gold. A gentleman who loved his family and the joy they brought into his life, especially his grandchildren. He enjoyed playing lazer with this favorite dog, Chanz.

He loved to be out going for rides when he could. A veteran of the Unites States army, he served in the Vietnam War.  After the war, he worked in industrial maintenance within the manufacturing industry.  When he wasn’t working, he liked to play games, like chess and “Chicken Feet”, a dominoes game.
