Jay Dee Miles, a little piece of heaven on earth, passed away May 27, 2021. Jay Dee was born in 1972 to Verlene Robinson Miles and Burwin Miles in Afton, Wyoming. He lived in Wyoming until he was 14 years old. At that time, he moved to Utah with his mother. For the past 34 years he has resided in Centerville with his brother and sister-in-law, Mel and Laura Miles.
While living in Centerville, Jay Dee graduated from Viewmont High School, was employed by wonderful companies, and earned his Eagle Scout award. He also enjoyed participating in Special Olympics and Special Needs Mutual.
Jay Dee treasured Pepsi, Maverik runs, movies, his birthday, food, and his best buddy, Snoopy. He also treasured times when he was able to be with his family. Jay Dee was blessed with the Miles love for teasing and treasured any opportunity he had to use this ability with friend or family.
When Jay Dee was born, his family wondered how having Down Syndrome would affect his life and how the world would react to him. However, it didn’t take long for them to learn what a blessing he was to his family and others. He brought a softness and love everywhere he went. His warm, loving smile was contagious. He had the talent of making everyone feel like they were his favorite. Jay Dee leaves a large legacy of love. We are so grateful the Lord blessed us with one of his most valiant sons. We will treasure his love, memories, and teases forever.
Jay Dee is survived by his siblings Mitchell Miles (Anne), Melvin Miles (Laura), Amanda Trujillo (Steve), and Corey Miles (Michelle). He is also survived by Sarah Miles Lee (AJ) and many other nieces and nephews who love him dearly.
He is preceded in death by his parents, grandparents and siblings Aven Venditti and Mark Miles.
