We were only with you a few times, Di and Kevin's wedding; and, we particularly enjoyed our Christmas visit with you in Kansas City - a very fond memory. We don't know too many people who genuinely enjoyed a well mixed cocktail quite like you, Miles. Ev and Carol

So saddened to hear about Miles passing. He always had a smile and from the beginning of my KGA tournament playing, he always made sure I felt welcomed. I will really miss my conversations with him.

Miles was Mr. Kansas City, he knew everybody and was liked by all. I loved all the hunting trips with Myles and Bud Walker and Wally O'dowd and me.We always had a great time together and I will miss him and his good nature and companionship. My nickname for Miles was quicksilver because he was so smooth. Rest in peace old friend. Ron Gurley

Top notch, first class. I always enjoyed Miles on the first tee of events
I played in. He remembered my brothers name on the tee, and Jeff
only played a handful of events. I will miss him, Tom Bachelor

So sorry to hear about Miler. I first met Miles at Indian Hills where I caddied. He played at Blue Hills but always played at Indian and St.Joe and we would caddie for him. He was a good stick in those days. He always asked about my brothers who caddied and I went into the insurance business like Miles. He truly will be missed this summer.
