Default The Passing of Craig Miles

Craig Miles, the Founder of Miles Marine, passed away at home on January 12, 2021. He was only 64 years old. He fought FTD, vascular dementia, and Early Onset Alzheimer's for the last few years and unfortunately he has passed away.

There was no one who worked harder or loved his family more than he did. This is a true family business with his wife and sons all working there. Many of us who have used their services over the years have understood the long hours and dedication to the business that they have. Craig started and built up a successful business and set a fine example for all to follow, and they have.

The calling hours will be held at Wilkinson Beane Funeral Home, 164 Pleasant Street, Laconia on Friday January 22nd from 4-7.

For many years Miles Marine has employed people who have graduated from the Marine Trades program at Lakes Region Community College. To help students, and support the college, a scholarship fund in Craig's name has been established with Lakes Region Scholarship Fund and will be used to keep his stamp on the Marine industry strong.

In years to come the Miles family would like to award a scholarship to a student entering the Marine Trades industry each year. If you can, please consider making a donation. If you are able to do that put "In memory of Craig Miles" or "Miles Scholarship Fund" in the memo line on the form.

Default Rip

I know Craig had been struggling for some time, and fought the good fight. Miles Marine moved two boats for me, including disassembly and reassembly. Professional all the way. The marinas on the coast were all very familiar and pleased to work with Miles. I'm sure that legacy will continue. My condolences to the family. RIP Craig.

I am very sad to hear this too. He used to bring the big boat from Laconia home every year and back in the spring for us until we needed the space. What a nice couple they were!

Thinking of Paula and his family. As a widow, I felt Paula was always sympathetic towards my situation. They are currently storing my (my late husbandís) old boat. Perhaps I should donate it to their scholarship.

I don't know your situation or anything about your boat. I do know that Miles Marine has sold boats for many people. If you wanted to ask them to sell it and put the money towards the scholarship fund I am sure they would.

I am not sure about this but I would think that any donation is tax deductible, but you should check that.
