Mookie,
Just sitting around today and wanted to write to say "Hello". We often think about you and want to say "we [all] miss you very much". Just had our 25th High School class Reunion over this past weekend. Your name came up a lot. Everyone was very sad to hear you weren't with us in person, but were happy to still feel your spirit. Well, I felt like saying "hey". Did you kiss my mom yet there in Heaven? I miss you both so much. See you two soon.

I was saddened to hear of Sinclair's passing through a friend. I had not seen him much since we graduated high school, but would hear of his achievements through various sources as he was one I could not forget and was always interested in hearing of him. He was always very kind and encouraging to me. Mookie you will be missed. Your family and myself were so blessed to know you. Watch over your daughter. Kids now have more obstacles than we ever did. I will see you one day.

My prayers go out to all of Mookies's family and friends. You will truly be missed by those who knew you. But you are in a better place now and one day we all can rejoice together again. Love you Mookie and you will not be forgotten. Love, "GRIPDOG"

My thoughts and prayers go out to Sinclair's wonderful family. He was truly a wonderful person and a kind soul. He was the kind of person that touched everyone he met in some positive way. May God Bless his family.

Like many, I too, have shared some of the best years, hours, and moments with Sinclair. Time I will cherish forever. 1976 was when Mookie came over from Bakersfield and joined the Youth Football League in San Luis Obispo as a member of the Colts football team. Sinclair was very mature for his year in school so he was placed on a team that consisted of kids one year ahead of him in school. He played on the Colts with Cedric "Mark" Adams, Tim Henderson, Ken Lewelling, along with others. I had the pleasure of trying to catch him as he ran past me - I played on the other team, the Bengals. Man, was I ever happy when we played on the same team. Mookie has more talent in his fingers than I ever had in my entire body. But he only started out as an awesome athlete. He grew to be a great person. A Husband, Father, Son and Friend. I have so many wonderful memories with Mookie and my friends from SLO High. Even when Mookie was at Cal Poly my brother John and I would spend time with him; we went to many
Football gatherings that we would never of attended if it had not been
for Mookie asking us to join him.
Sinclair will live forever in many hearts here in California, and many other places because of his kindness
and knack for pleasing everyone he ever came in contact with.
Sinclair spoke so lovingly of Lakshmi and Gita that I just knew he was right where God wanted him to be. My heart goes out to you two,
and all of his family. Mother Delois
sisters, Betty, Cynthia and Deborah.
Brother LC, nephews, Markel, Aaron,
Gerald Jr., and niece Tiffany. You all are the world to Sinclair, and I hope you never forget that. He will always have your back! Give my mom a kiss for me. I'll see you soon

To: Sinclair “Mookie” Miles, Family, Friends, Teammates
The news hit me like a brick. I am saddened to lose my San Luis ‘80, ’81, ’82 High School Class and football teammate. Sinclair was one of those special athletes that excelled in all sports. I remember in youth football he was so fast our coaches devised special defensive formations just to stop him. Nothing worked against Sinclair; you could not catch him once he broke loose. This carried into junior high and high School football where I was glad to have him on my team. As a tight end I loved when Coach Leon Criner called a sweep, I knew Sinclair could bring it home if we made our blocks and he did many times. A few times my Grandfather invited Sinclair and Robert Haworth after football games out for Mclintocks steaks, we would eat so much it would hurt. In 1980 Head Coach Leon Criner, Assistant coaches John Durant, Thom Dimmitt, John West, Phil Prijatal, assembled a bunch of young talented football players. The 1980 ’81 season was my most memorable, loosing to Lompoc High in League play and defeating them in the CIF Championship game. In CIF playoffs we beat a two year undefeated team in La Canada High School. In that game Sinclair broke his ankle and we lost our great tail back for the championship game against Lompoc at Cal Poly stadium. Robert Haworth took over and did a great job. I still remember after winning the game Sinclair on crutches jumping up and down on one foot excited to be a CIF Champion. The next day a picture of Sinclair holding up his crutches in Victory reminded all his teammates who helped bring the tigers to the final dance. I love to talk about our CIF championship winning team of ’80 ’81 and Sinclair will forever be linked with the great CIF Champions of San Luis High 1980 ’81. Sinclair’s speed carried over onto the track team as well. In track I threw discuss while Sinclair was our league MVP speed freak. His record in the 100 yard dash still stands to this date. Everyone would stop what they were doing and watch Sinclair race. He always won I never saw Sinclair loose and he was so smooth with his stride, it was as if his upper body never moved. I went off to join my best friend Bob Binkele and played football for the University of Utah and Sinclair went to Cal Poly. I lost touch with Sinclair over the years but never forgot what kind of a person he was, his smile, kind nature and great athletic ability. Sinclair “Mookie” Miles thank you for being you and thank you for being a positive influence in my life. Your Friend, Don Woodward

I was saddened at first by your loss, but know your in a better place one that has been prepared for you and all of us before the start of time. You will be missed my brother and and always thought about. Much love and respect to you and your family mookie. You've come a long way. I remember when we used to compete for position on our Championship Football team of 80' 81. That was an awesome team to be apart of and an everlasting brotherhood that was built out of it. Sinclair, I know your looking down upon all of us with a big smile on your face having the answers to all the questions that we can only wonder about. You keep playing the saxophone and doing all the things you love. I'll see you when God decides to bring me home. Give my sister Cheryl a kiss for me. Peace and Love Sinclair, God bless you.

Sinclair was a wonderful person. We had shared a CIF championship together and developed a nice friendship.
I'm sorry that I will not be able to make the services but my heart goes out to his family and friends. I will pray for Sinclair as I know that he will be watching over his family and friends from above. Glod bless Sinclair and his wonderful family.
