David William Miles passed away on January 28, 2022, at the age of 77 from injuries sustained in a snowmobile accident. He was doing what he loved with his best friend on a bluebird day in Tony Grove.
He was born on March 2, 1944, to Orin and Gwenaver Miles. His childhood was spent in Smithfield Canyon where his love of adventure, hard work and fun began.
He graduated from North Cache High School in 1962. He served a mission in Southern Germany for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-saints.
He married his high school sweetheart, MarGene Griffin, in the Logan Temple in 1966. He attended Utah State University where he was affiliated with PiKappa Alpha Fraternity. He graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago in 1972. He was a professor at Northwestern before coming back to his canyon roots.

His best day was first chair on a powder day at the Beav where he served as a member of the National Ski Patrol at Beaver Mountain for forty years. He loved the temple where he and his wife served as ordinance workers for 10 years.

He was proficient, even at the age of 77, still motorcycling, bicycling, snowmobiling, snow skiing, water-skiing, and playing tennis.
