Jerry had a love for cars.  Especially fast ones!  He was President of the Abilene Performance Car Association for many years.  He was instrumental in getting the Big Country Raceway started here in Abilene.  Jerry was in the car business for over 25 years, 17 of which, he owned and operated Jerry's Auto Sales.  His love for cars was passed down to his sons, grandsons, and great grandsons.

Jerry loved to kick back, relax, and do a little fishing at Lake Brownwood with his family, whom he was devoted.  He was so patient with his granddaughters and great granddaughter, always having time for a manicure, facial, or "hairdo".  

He is survived by his wife, Carol Miles, son Jerry Don Miles, Jr. and wife Pam, son James Allen Miles and wife Tanya, brother John Miles, sister Jean Palmer, brother-in-law Dennis Florence,  Six Grandchildren (Camron, Nick, Kadee, Jesse, Jason, and Mikayla) and Three great grandchildren (Jaxon, Charlie, and Liam).

Pallbearers will be his sons Jerry Jr. and Jimmy Miles and grandsons Camron, Nick, Jesse, and Jason Miles.
