Giles was one of the first people that Shyree and I met after moving to the Lake Conroe area in 1998. A true gentleman that never met a stranger and went out of his way to make us feel at home.
Sincere condolences to his family and many friends.
A larger than life personality that will be missed but not forgotten!
