Miles R. Ford, 66, of Upper St. Clair, passed away at his home in Black Mountain, N.C., on Thursday, Jan. 9, from an acute cardiac event. He was born in Uniontown and was a son of the late Robert C.

He earned a B.S. in civil engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1975 and worked in the air pollution control industry for 40 years. Miles was a longtime active member of Dormont-Mt.

He is also survived by his siblings, Homer Ford and wife Soozi Whitten Ford, Linda Ford and husband Ed Festor and Virginia Hughes and husband David Hughes.
