I am so sorry for your loss. Miles showed me the ropes when I started in 2004 and worked with him until her had retired. He was always willing to lend a hand and just a good hearted person. I was lucky enough to see him perform at a couple of times for the service team get togethers. Rest in peace.

Dear Charlene, your husband, and our dear colleague, was and still is a very good man! All of us when we joined Ultrasounds had enjoyed his kind help and assistance with smile and encouragement! He had a "cool" and balance personality and a wisdom not take work related crises and even his poor health too seriously. May his memory be a blessing for you and all your family: his son, his daughters and grandchildren!

Dear Char and family, I am so sad to hear the news of Miles's passing. However, I know that heaven has welcomed a new jovial musician with a wonderful heart into the fold. I am so glad I had a chance to visit with Miles in Mississippi the last time he made the trip to Doug Goodwin's Froggy Bottom Music Festival. We had a nice reunion with several "GEezers" (retired GE Ultrasound engineers). I met Miles when we were working in the Milwaukee District office in the early 1980's before we both started working in Ultrasound. Whenever I had some of our fellow GE musical engineers in my classes at HCI, Miles would spend many nights playing his guitar with the students and share his wonderful songs and humor. We are all going to miss his dear smiling face. Regards, Evelyn Peters
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I met Miles after GE acquired Diasonics Ultrasound in California in 1999. Miles helped our group transition into the On-Line Center, which was a huge change for me. He always had a smile and words of encouragement. He became a great friend and mentor during my time at GE. I remember he loved music and he and his friends would jam at our house and fill the air with music and laughter. He will truly be missed! May the Lord wrap his arms around you, until we meet again!

I knew Miles from 1992 when I first started with GEMS as a FE. I worked with Miles on the Online Center team until he retired. He was a master at customer service, laughing, singing ,playing music and burning microwave popcorn. He is missed. Thank you Miles for memories you left us!❤️

Miles helped me as a new FE way back in 1999. We always enjoyed his presence with the guitar pickers in Louisiana and in the basement at HCI training! He will be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. Miles was a great coworker as well as friend. Although I didn't know him for very long, he was a wonderful mentor to new Ultrasound FEs like myself. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Irene Cristancho left a message on November 30, 2020:
I am really sorry for your loss. Miles is in a special place in our hearts. My husband Dean and I knew him and always enjoyed his positive spirit. Miles was my "trainer" when I started my job in GE back in 2000 and I always saw him as a father figure in the On Line Center. God bless you all Irene&Dean

I'm another one of his old friends from GE Ultrasound! He helped me through more problems than I can even begin to count. Always calm and collected. Many fond memories of good times. I will add him to my prayer list. May the Lord hold him in the palm of his hand until we meet again.

I will miss my good friend Miles, having enjoyed his friendship for over 34 years. He had such a wide circle of friends, with each one feeling special to him. I felt he was my brother, and will deeply miss him. To Charlene, Chantal and Jolene, and all who loved him, I send my thoughts and prayers.
