Miracle moved to Arcata at the age of 3 mos. and resided in Arcata until the age of 18. Miracle was an avid soccer player, his love of the sport was obvious when watching him on the field. He played for the Humboldt Steelheads for 3 years and loved traveling out of town for games and tournaments. His love of soccer helped him to become a reader; the first book he read cover to cover was World Encyclopedia of Soccer which he had checked out from the Sunset School Library in the third grade. Miracle also enjoyed reading poetry, physics, philosophy, religion, and German history. Miracle had a fearless spirit, he loved exploring the outdoors and experimenting in the kitchen. Miracle is also well known for his sense of humor and wit; he enjoyed doing monologues in funny voices and making people laugh. He graduated from Arcata High School in 2011. Writing poetry was a passion he developed while in high school; he had hoped to be published one day "Remember me kindly Do admit your own pain I'll take you in any time Though I have gone still" He is survived by his mother Kimberly Chapman, stepfather Joseph Thompson, sister Ivy Moller, brother Jesse Myles, aunt Ashly Chapman, Cousin Bella Bently of Arcata, and grandparents Robert Chapman and Cynthia Kinder of West Virginia, and numerous extended family in West Virginia and Alabama.
