Joseph "Joe" Veller Miles, Sr. Obituary

Joseph “Joe” Veller Miles, Sr. (85, years young) was called home on October 11, 2023…one could only suspect he caught word that heaven had a yard that needed to be mowed.

In his younger years, he worked for Rose Construction. But in his “YOUTHFUL” years, he could most often be found mowing lawns, washing cars, tinkering with something in his garage, or watching Western Movies or Andy Griffith in his recliner.

Joe was a lover of the simple things in life. A pair of perfectly polished boots, a good bologna sandwich, 3-musketeers, sweet tea, and finding a good deal in the auto trader.

With certainty, he will be greeted in heaven by his parents, Clarence and Carrie Miles, his siblings, JE Miles, Jr. Miles, Fats Miles, Leo Miles, Bernie Miles, Tommy Miles,  Billy Miles, Cotton Miles and Margaret (Sis) Keeling, a few good ol dogs, and many more loving friends and family members who went before him.

On earth, his legacy continues through his blushing bride of 59 years, Donna Miles, his 5 children, Kathy (Mike) Ballard, Kristy (Darren) Mattingly, Jody (Jenny) Miles, Jr, Kim Miles, and Rob (Rosanne) Miles, 10 grandchildren (who often fought over who was his favorite), 4 great grandchildren, 1 sister, Mary Carolyn Simpson, 1 sister in law, Doris J. Miles, and a whole mess of good people who knew and loved him.

He spent his last days surrounded by more love than anyone could wish for.

His body may be worn out but his energy is infinite. His family is comforted knowing that he will be there to welcome them home one day with that little half grin and a twinkle in his eye.

A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00am on Monday, October 16 at Barlow Funeral Home. Visitation will be held on Sunday, October 15 from noon to 6pm and Monday morning from 9-11am at Barlow Funeral Home.  Deacon Scott Turner will officiate.  Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery.
