Myles Hugh Criswell, age 47, lifelong resident of Mobile, AL, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, August 27, 2018. Myles was a graduate of St. Paul’s Episcopal School, where he was Junior and Senior Class President and attended both the University of South Alabama and the University of Alabama. He was a talented writer who wrote many local articles, one most recently in published in the Langipape. He was a longtime member of First Baptist Church Satsuma. Myles was a very kind and benevolent man. He had a love of people which extended into his community. It was not unusual to see him spend his last dollar to buy a homeless person a bottle of water on a hot Alabama day. He enjoyed spreading the word of God and sharing his daily devotion. He always felt that through his life’s journey and struggles he had a story to share. Myles is survived by his parents, Charles and Ann Criswell of Thompson Station, TN, brother, Monty Criswell (DeNesha) of Nashville, TN.

Myles was a very sweet and gentle soul. He always had a kind word for those he met. He was a huge help when I compiled a cookbook for a fundraiser for our youth choir. He came to me and told me he wanted to donate the coping of the books. Such a giving young man. I was blessed to have known him. "Myles we love you and you will truly be missed!!!"

Myles was a gentle, loving person. Always smiling and sharing his sweet spirit. I met Myles thru my husband Frank Bolton at Waffle House on DIP.
He was a talented writer. We will miss him so much. He was a great friend.
