Philip Edward Miles, also known as Phil, passed away on September 9, 2023, in Burlington, VT at UVM Medical Center unexpectedly, at the age of 62. Born on October 17, 1960, in Littleton, New Hampshire, Phil brought a vibrant energy to every room he entered. His infectious smile, laughter, and endless repertoire of jokes never failed to bring joy to those around him. Phil firmly believed in the value of hard work and, alongside his beloved wife Lila, he worked tirelessly to achieve his goals in life.

Phil had a deep love for the outdoors and cherished moments spent hunting, fishing, and camping with his children and grandchildren. He was a man of many talents and took pride in his ability to fix anything he set his mind to. Phil's career was marked by his versatility and determination. One notable accomplishment was his involvement in building asphalt plants alongside his brothers.

In his free time, Phil enjoyed engaging in various hobbies, including hunting, fishing, playing horseshoes and volleyball, bowling, maple sugaring, riding his motorcycle, and watching NASCAR and football. These activities brought him great pleasure and provided opportunities to create lasting memories with family and friends.

Phil will be deeply missed by his surviving loved ones, including his wife Lila, children Tarrah Martin, Tanya and Jeff Morin, grandchildren Ethan, Ava, and Rowan Martin, JT and Wyatt Morin, siblings Bub and Carol Barup, Austin and Lynn Barup, Hal and Theresa Barup, Johnny Giddings, Joseph and Clanci Giddings, Jeff Tompkins, Tim Miles, Laurie and Eric Hesseltine, as well as numerous sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and his UMV family. He was preceded in death by his mother June Giddings, father Richard Miles, Kay and Christy Ingalls, Gram Harriet Stinson, Grampy Gene Miles, Jack Giddings, Roger Coburn, Winford and Ida Tanner, and Ruth Miles.
