Claude W. Miles, Jr.

April 03, 1929 - September 02, 2018

Claude W. Miles Jr., 89, went to his rest Sept. 2, 2018. He was born in Knoxville in 1929 to his loving parents, Claude Sr. and Dolly Miles. In 1948, he joined the U.S. Air Force, and by 1949 he was stationed at Selfridge Air Force base where he met Reta M. Miles. They were married in 1952, and he was honorably discharged from the Air Force.
Claude and Reta lived in Michigan where they raised their family. In 1987, Claude retired from General Motors, and they moved to Fairfield Glade to enjoy retirement together.
Claude was an excellent golfer and enjoyed the game until 85 years young! He enjoyed watching professional basketball, golf and college football. His love for all cars, new and old, was never ending. He also loved music and dancing. Claude attended church weekly and was a member of the Fairfield Glade Community Church.
In 1998 after Reta passed, Claude met his current wife of 15 years, June Cunningham. They married in 2003 and continued to enjoy retirement together in the Glade.
Claude was dearest father of Claudia Miles, Roberta Szalach (Darryl Cohen), Angela (John) Sarcone, Melissa (Leonard) Bex, Kathy (Robert) Thompson, and Susan (Peter) Weir. He was grandfather to Matthew and Eric Szalach, John Sarcone, Christina Shuttleworth, Nick Sarcone, Lauren and Austin Bex, and Benjamin and Kaelan Weir. Claude also had seven great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents; his beloved first wife, Reta; brother, Alvin Miles; and sisters, Martha Lee Wallace and Frances Metler.
