Born In: Glace Bay

It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, brother and friend, John A. Miles. He passed away on July 13, 2016 at the age of 70 in Hampton, N.B., where he resided the last number of years.
John was the son of the late John & Hilda (MacPhee) Miles. John was born in Glace Bay and raised in No. 11 area. In his younger days, he was extremely active in sports where he followed in his father’s footsteps as a catcher in baseball & goal tender in hockey. In later years, John enjoyed numerous outdoor activities such as hiking, hunting, & fishing, where he was at peace being with Mother Nature.
Prior to his retirement, John was involved in law enforcement for almost 30 years, first as a police officer on the Halifax Police Force, & over 20 years as a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In the RCMP, John patrolled many areas of Nova Scotia & New Brunswick.
He is survived by his daughter & son-in-law, Danyelle & Graham Smith of Howie Centre; grandchildren, Ryan, Rochelle, & Nolan; brothers, Bill (Gloria), Joseph (Rose Mary); his uncle, Bea Miles, his aunt, Joan MacLeod, all of Glace Bay; also his aunt, Ruth MacLean of Calgary; as well as numerous cousins. John is also survived by many friends in Nova Scotia & New Brunswick, especially a special friend & soul mate, Debbie French of Quispamsis, N.B.
As per John’s wishes, there will be no public visitation. There will be a private family service under the direction of Curry’s Funeral Home, Glace Bay. Interment will be in the Black Brook Cemetery.
As John was a member of the Shriners Organization, a donation to the Shriners Children Hospital, or a charity of one’s choice would be a way to honour his memory.
