Samuel Leroy Miles Sr. affectionately known as Leroy was the son of the late Aurthur William Miles and Virginia King. He was born in Somerset County on January 19, 1943. Leroy was educated in the Somerset County Public School System. He joined the United States Army upon graduation of high school. Leroy had an extraordinary military career decorated with a National Defense Service Medal, a Bronze Service Medal, an Army Commendation Medal, 7 Good Conduct Medals, a Drill Sergeant Identification Badge, an Army Achievement Medal, a Vietnam Service Medal, a Vietnam Campaign Medal, a Vietnam Gallantry Cross w/Palm, 4 NCO Professional Development Ribbons, a Korean Service Medal, an Army Service Ribbon and 3 Overseas Service Ribbons. Leroy loved fighting for his country but felt it was time to retire after 25 years of service. Soon after Leroy retired again after 15 years with the United States Postal Service. He still had a desire to work so Leroy focused on being an entrepreneur by owning and operating Miles Trucking Company for 5 years. After all those years of working Leroy wanted to concentrate and enjoy family life with his wife Barbara Jean Miles. Leroy and Barbara Miles have been married for 56 amazing years with 3 children...Valarie Miles-Williams(George), Angelia C. Miles, Samuel Leroy Miles Jr.(DaVita) and 9 grandchildren...Samuel Leroy Miles III, Rae'Ven Waters, Derek Deshaune Harper, Shaquan Miles, Samaria Miles, Samir Miles, Samar Miles, NeVear Watts, Samonni Miles and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends that had a special place in his heart.
"No more suffering and no more pain; I have gone to a much better place; where there's pearly gates and streets of gold and many mansions so I've been told. It is a place full of happiness and full of love, that god has prepared for us all above. I have fought a good battle, and the race I have won. I have gone to be with Jesus; My work here is now done. But one day we will meet again, in our heavenly home. I've got a new name. My name is Servant Well Done!
