Douglas W. Miles Obituary
Douglas W. Miles

Born: September 4, 1938

Died: September 3, 2018

Douglas W. Miles, loving brother and uncle, found eternal peace Monday, September 3, 2018, just one day prior to his 80th birthday.

Born September 4, 1938 in St. Charles, attended schools there, and graduated from St. Charles High School in 1956. He attended the University of Illinois Engineering School for a year then returned home when his father died in 1957 and attended Northern Illinois University Business School. He worked in lithography, sales with US Petrolon Industrial, and copywriting.

He is survived by his sister, Barbara Miles Balc and her husband, Wendell Balc; and his 3 nieces, Stefanie Balc Hamner, Allison Balc Ross, and Arnie Balc Robison, and their families. They so enjoyed his fun personality and their special visits with him.

He was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Miles; and his mother, Ruby Miles.

We thank his many friends from St. Charles who have stayed in touch, his friends at the Northwest Baptist Bible Church in Elgin, Aperion, and Seasons Hospice staff.

A private family service and celebration of his life was held with interment at River Hills Memorial Park.

Doug faced many challenges, but he was always a positive person and, in his words, "We are all great winners. It's what we learn in defeat that defines us."
