OBITUARY

Norman Paul Miles

July 6, 1935June 18, 2016

Norman Paul Miles, 80, of Las Vegas, NV, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, June 18, 2016, a day before Father's Day. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Norman spent most of his life in Japan after his Army service, where he met and married Hisako Uchida and raised their two children. An experienced Aikido practitioner, he also worked with AAFES as a manufacturer's representative, traveling extensively throughout all US military bases in the Pacific regardless of branch. In doing so, Norman developed numerous friendships with both military and civilian personnel in all branches of the US Armed Forces. Norman and Hisako retired and moved to Las Vegas in 1999, where his outgoing personality and opinions about politics and investments gained him the respect of all those who had the privilege of getting to know him. Norman is survived by his sister Mary Ellen, daughter Margaret, son Paul, and loving extended family. He was preceded in death by the love of his life and wife of 41 years, Hisako, in 2011. Norman was a loving and caring husband, father, and friend to all. He will be greatly missed. A private, military funeral service for Norman Paul Miles will held at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Cards may be directed to the Miles residence in Las Vegas.

Norm was a member of our daily "afternoon coffee group" and could always be counted on to bring great conversation to the group. We will all miss his outgoing personality. I know he is where he wants to be now, with his beloved wife. Rest in peace and know you did make a difference.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words. Dad was quite the character and definitely unforgettable, and so incredibly knowledgeable about all sorts of things! I miss him terribly, and am so glad I was able to move out here a few years ago to spend more time with him.

I've been trying to find everyone's phone number, but it's been a little challenging; email addresses seem to be a little easier to find. I do have access to Dad's email, so please email there.

A tight circle of us in Norm's business referred to him as Uncle Norm. This was out of respect and warmth as he had become our unofficial elder statesman. If my dad, Phil Hoerr, were still here he would tell you that Norm was the best and the smartest in our business. For me I still miss the Saturday mornings decades ago when he would stop by with Margaret or Paul tagging along for a chat. And if you knew Norm then you knew that he could chat. RIP my friend
