Life Story / Obituary


Robert Jr. Miles, age 69 passed away peacefully on September 11, 2016. He was born and raised in Alton, IL and served in the Air Force from 1966-1969 stationed in Germany. While on holiday in Belgium, he met his future wife Janice.

After serving in the Air Force, Bob and Janice moved to Lansing, MI where they had two sons, Jeffrey and Adam. As the boys grew up, Bob enjoyed coaching soccer and was considered a well-regarded coach in the soccer community. After 24 years in Lansing, Bob transferred to Fort Wayne, IN with General Motors and retired with G.M. after 34 years of service without missing a single day. Bob and Janice spent 12 years in Fort Wayne, and after a vacation to Saugatuck, MI they decided to move and start a new passion, which became the "Janice Miles Gallery". Whether it was growing up in Alton, living in Lansing, Ft. Wayne, and Saugatuck, Bob touched many lives and will be deeply missed.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Janice of 47 years, sons; Jeffrey, Adam (Nichole), grandchildren; Peyton, Alexis, siblings; Mike, Chris & Brenda.
