Obituary for Marvin L. Miles

Marvin L. Miles, 93, passed away peacefully on October 27, 2017 at Hospice House in Greenwood, SC. Marvin was born and raised in Walnut, Mississippi and proudly served his country during World War II as an airplane mechanic with the US Navy. At the conclusion of the war, he moved back to Mississippi and married the former Lillie Nelson.

Marvin had a long and interesting career, using the skills he had gained in the Navy as an airplane mechanic, first with C&S Airlines in Memphis, TN, and then with Delta Airlines in Atlanta where, for 33 years, he served as a lead mechanic. After retirement, the Miles moved to Greenwood to be closer to their family. Marvin was a member of Greenwood Baptist Church where he and his wife faithfully served until his health declined.

Marvin will always be known for his soft words, his tender spirit, and most of all, for his service to others. He passes this legacy on to the many he helped and to his loved ones who cherish his memory: his wife of 70 years, Lillie; a daughter, Rosa (Don) Ryerson of Greenwood; a son Rev. Tom (Bonny ) Miles of Nicholson, GA; 3 grandchildren, Kara (Jason) Boling, Casey (Matt) Davis and Josh (Jennie) Ryerson, and 6 great grandchildren.

A celebration of Marvin’s life will be held Sunday, October 29 at 2:30 at the chapel of Oakbrook Memorial Park , Greenwood, SC. Friends are invited to a viewing at the chapel prior to the service, from 1:30 to 2:30. The service will be conducted by his son, Rev. Tom Miles, assisted by Rev. Jason Boling, and Rev. Matt Davis. Arrangements are being made by Blyth Funeral Home.
