Samuel E. Miles
Samuel Edward Miles, son of Samuel and Agnes Frances Goldman Miles, was born January 28, 1955. He passed away on November 9, 2013.
Samuel attended the public schools of Middlesex County and went on to further his education at Rappahannock Community College in Glenns and Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton.
In the early 1980s, he joined the Armed Forces, serving in the United States Army. He served partly in Hawaii and a tour in Saudi Arabia. In the Army, he was an honor graduate in the leadership courses (top of this class). After retiring from the Army, Samuel continued to work with the U.S. government. He worked in Washington, D.C., at the Pentagon and served as an Administrative Assistant at Walter Reed Hospital and the Navy Medical Center in Maryland.
Samuel attended different churches and Bible studies in the Maryland and Washington, D.C., areas.
In Hawaii, he met a very special friend, Vivian Smith, whom he remained friends with until his passing. He later gained another friend, Faith Butler, who we thank very much for everything she did for Sam during his last days. Both Vivian and Faith were family.
On Saturday, November 9, God, in his infinite wisdom, called His son home. He was preceded in death by his parents, Agnes Frances and Samuel Miles.
Cherishing fond memories of Samuel are his siblings: Alice A. Miles of Irvington and her daughter, Licia Miles Dandridge, of Lancaster, George W. Miles (Sharon) of Lackey, Milton D. Miles of Saluda, and Barbara A. Miles of Woodbridge; several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.
A funeral service was held Saturday, November 16, at Antioch Baptist Church in Saluda. Thank you to the Antioch Baptist Church family and friends. A special thank-you to the Class of 1973, and the United States Armed Forces for the graveside ceremony.
