He was born April 3, 1952 in Lakeview the son of Samuel and Jean Miles. Donn and Bonnie were married on May 21, 2004 and have enjoyed 17 years together. Donn worked at Michigan Chair in Howard City where he was a custom wood bender for several years before retiring. He had also worked for Olsen Knife Co. Donn loved to make knives. Donn loved to take “Buggy” (side by side) rides where he may have partaken in a Bud Light beverage (or two) and a Marlboro cigarette. When the buggy ride was over he would enjoy coming home and having a bon fire in the back yard. Donn was a avid lover of cop shows and you had better believe that your silence was golden when he was watching his TV! Donn was an animal lover with 5 dogs and 3 cats to keep him busy. Donn is survived by his beloved wife Bonnie; children, Brian (Alison) Miles, Angie (Kevin) Miles, Travis (Hope) Niswonger, Joey Miles, Ethan Miles, non biological son, Joe (Angel) Fairbrother; 9 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; siblings, Sharon (Herald) Proctor, Ed Miles, Keith Miles, Cindy Puff Miles; sister-in-law, Betty (Don) Niswonger; two amazing friends, Al Patterson and James Workman; several nieces and nephews.

Donn had a philosophy that “If you can’t come see me when I’m alive then don’t come see me when I’m dead.” To honor of his beliefs the family will not be having a service. Anyone wishing to aid the family, contributions would be appreciated to assist in the purchase of a headstone can be sent to Bonnie at 16076 Division Ave Coral, MI 49322.
