By on March 12, 2019

Mitchell Dale Miles, 59, of Nags Head, NC died Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at Sentara Albemarle Medical Center. Born in Norfolk, VA on May 12, 1959, he was the son of the late Wanda Lee Lance and Terry Edward Miles (Virginia Miles).

Mitchell is survived by three children, Alicia Stearns (Ryan) of Kill Devil Hills, Matt Miles (Amy) of Shawboro, and Dana Burkindine (Chris) of Shawboro; five grandchildren, Aiden Burkindine, Liam Burkindine, Caleb Vaughan, Lily Vaughan all of Shawboro and Mara Stearns of Kill Devil Hills; and four siblings, Terry Lillich, Timothy Miles, Ranell Miles, and Ronda Williams.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Pamela Stewart.

After years of fighting chronic breathing issues, he is now at peace and would want everyone to remember the good times.

Mitch was a people person and loved his friends and family. He enjoyed playing guitar, fishing, art, electronics, martial arts, and lively debate. He was always up for a conversation and provided a listening ear for many who sought his advice. He had a wonderful sense of humor, which was passed on to his children and grandchildren. He will be sorely missed by all who loved him.

In keeping with Mitchell’s wishes, there will be no service at this time. A celebration of life will be arranged at a later date.

Twiford Funeral Home, Manteo is assisting the family with arrangements. Condolences and memories can be shared at
