Graveside Memorial Service for Jackson M. Miles, Sr., age 86, will be held on June 17, at 1:00 p.m. at Minden Cemetery in Minden, LA, with Rev. Fred Wideman officiating.
Mr. Miles was born on June 12, 1933, to Kirtley J. Miles and Eris Monzingo Miles, and died at his home on April 17, 2020 surrounded by loved ones.
He played high school football and was on the swim team. Following graduation from Minden High School in 1951, he attended Louisiana Tech University and graduated with a degree in petroleum engineering in 1959. In 1954 he married the love of his life Dana Davis and had three beautiful children. Together they traveled the world for Jackson’s job, living in Scotland, Ireland, and Australia to name a few. Retirement from the oilfield brought him and his family to Texas. He loved watching sports, especially his Dallas Cowboys.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his wife, Dana. He is survived by his children, Chip (and Darla) Miles of Weatherford, TX, Davis (and Sandy) Miles of Corsicana, TX, and Missy (and Brad) Coffelt of Whitney, TX, and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Sally Bullard, with Divine Home Health, who was his friend and caregiver these past few years.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials be made to your own home church as a way of honoring and remembering him.
