Obituary

Deacon Joe David Miles, Jr. was born September 4, 1937 in Alamance County, North Carolina to the Joe David Miles, Sr. and Annie Lee Chavis Miles.  Following many years of serving the Lord and witnessing to His goodness, he passed away into eternal rest while in the comforts of his home on June 7, 2021.  He was a graduate of Pleasant Grove Union High School and was the owner and operator of J&J Container Services.  Prior to him opening his own business, he was a Supervisor with Cone Mills.  

If you knew Deacon JD Miles, you knew he loved the LORD.  He was like a 747 Jet plane....he was always ready for take off.  He was baptized in his youth at Miles Chapel Baptist Church and was ordained a Deacon.  Later in life, he joined Glen Raven First Baptist Church and began serving on the Deacon's Board, sang with the Male Chorus and would do all he could to assist the ministry.  He even had his own Street Ministry, winning souls to Christ.  He  enjoyed riding his motorcycle and story telling...past, present and future.  

He will be forever remembered by his wife: Jean C. McBroom Miles; three children: Shelita Miles, Valjeanne Miles McLean (Larry) and Reverend Joe David Miles, III (Rennee); four grandchildren: Gabrielle Miles, Shethada Miles Pass (Orville, III), Chelsea Miles-Sellars (Terrance) and Mario Moore; 13 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild; a sister: Carolyn M.
