Living in Orchard Park, NY, his long career included employment with General Electric as a travelling auditor, Central National Bank as controller, Marine Midland Bank as Executive VP and Chief Financial Officer, and Empire Savings Bank as Executive VP. He retired in 1988 and moved to Arden, NC in 1991. An avid golfer, he was a former member of Orchard Park Country Club and High Vista Country Club. Miles also loved to fish and play bridge. He attended Pinecrest Presbyterian in Flat Rock.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, William Sobolik (Marty) of Littleton, CO and Carrie Cicciarello (Frank) of Fort Mill, SC; grandchildren, Claire Miles and Samuel Luis; great-grandchildren, Lila Grace and Jackson Wyatt; and dear friend, Anne Graczyk. We will miss his smile, his love for life and the way he would look at every situation and make it a positive one. He was our sweet Dad, our rock and always there to listen. We will miss his daily phone calls and visits. One day we will be together again and know he is watching down on us until then.
A service will be planned for Spring of 2021 in Orchard Park, NY.
