On December 28, 2020, William “Bill” Leroy Miles, Jr. passed away at his residence in Burtonsville, MD. Bill was born on Thursday, January 29, 1942 in Olney, MD to his parents W. Leroy Miles, Sr. and Doris “Granny” (nee Mills) Miles.

Bill started his working life cutting meat at the Burtonsville Market at 11 years old, working for his father, then to  Safeway, but was best known for owning and operating the Laurel Meat Market on Main Street for almost 50 years. Bill was a fixture at his store and was always good for a quick smile and wave, or a long conversation.  Bill knew his customers and their families and always took an interest in their well being.

After operating the Meat Market for 48 years Bill (and his family) made the decision to retire and close the market, prompting Mayor Craig Moe and the Laurel City Council to issue a proclamation declaring October 21, 2018 as “Bill Miles Family Day” and giving Bill a Key to the City.

Bill was a veteran of the US Navy and was a parishioner and member of Liberty Grove United Methodist Church and the American Legion.

Bill is survived by his loving wife Ruth Ann Miles; his caring son Brian L. Miles and wife Candi; his cherished grandchildren Brian Miles, Jr., Zack Miles and Christopher Miles, Tricia Wills, and Tony Kreuger. He is also survived by his brother Jim Miles and daughter-in-law Melinda.  Bill was preceded in death by his parents Leroy and Doris and his son Chris S. Miles.

Above all, Bill was a hard worker and a devoted husband who loved his family.

If desired, memorial donations can be made in Bill’s name to the American Heart Association or the American Cancer Society.
