Miles attended Northern High School in Dillsburg. He worked as a truck driver for 36 years; a career that Miles grew to love and become a master at. He worked for 13 years hauling freight from Rose Transportation, Inc., Matlack Trucking, Inc. for many years driving a tanker, and most recently, hauling logs. Miles was a skilled mechanic who worked on all of his own equipment. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to any of his friends who needed something fixed. Miles was the kind of person who would take the shirt off of his back for anyone in need. He also loved to play guitar and build various items with wood, some of which were for his family’s home.
