Miles Raymond Matthew, age 3 years 11 months, passed away at home on February 15, 2017 following a courageous fight against cancer. A strong fighter, he thrived beyond anyone’s expectations. Playful moments with his sister, Malia, riding his tricycle and scooter, swinging, driving his blue electric car, and getting to do those things he dreamed of one day growing up to be: a train engineer, a pilot, and an astronaut filled his final days.
On March 25, 2013, Miles came into this world with a smile that brought miles of smiles to all those around him. He willingly helped, no matter how big the task. He loved the color blue, trains, cars, and airplanes. The blue teddy from Grammie was by his side comforting him every day and every night through his fight.
His memory will live on with his sister, Malia, 5 years, his mother, Christie, and his father, Josh. He will live on in the hearts of his grandparents – Don and June Raymond, Chip and Kathy Matthew, his aunts – Julie Moffet and Erin Matthew, his uncles – Mitch Moffet and Ben Matthew, and his cousins – Ellie Moffet, Harlie Moffet, Sean Matthew, and Sam Matthew, and all his friends.
