Beloved son of Jeffrey and Maggie Ruiz and Rachel and Spencer Peters. Loving brother of Violet, Chelsea (Sam), Megan, Ben and Levi. Dear uncle of Jude, Hannah, Jasper and Lucy. Grandson of Richard T. Ruiz, George and Mary Joyce Beach and Christine Bubier. He will be dearly missed by many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends and furry friends: Chiro (Cat) and Frankie (dog). Myles was an absolute Rockstar for Troy Athens Marching Band. He was a featured soloist in Troy Athens’ 2019 ‘Pirates’ show and helped train so many new marchers in his time in marching band. In jazz band, he could solo, play songs by ear, and put together many virtual compilations for the trumpets over the past year. He loved playing his trumpet, mellophone, and being with his band friends. So many of them were impacted positively by Myles. Myles loved his family. Whether he was playing video games with his brothers, going sledding or playing in the playground with his nieces and nephews. He loved going on walks with family and their dogs. Myles was adored by his brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. Myles loved biking. He would go on 200 plus mile bike rides with this father. He was a master of riding no handed. He and his father would hit all the key eating spots while on the trip. He loved a huge breakfast, pizza, the biggest hamburger (he loved Red Knapp Hamburgers) and finishing a hot day with an icy freeze from the nearest gas station. Myles also loved taking short trips to the local ice cream shop. Myles loved dirt and sand. His earliest pastime was to dig a hole as deep as he could and try to bury himself in the sand. He was nicknamed the “Sand Man”. He would only wear sandals during the summer and try to see how dark he could make his “dirt” tan lines. Myles was a good caring soul. Always looking for the good in people and for their best interests. He could sense in others if they needed comfort or encouragement. He will be missed. He was a bright light for his friends and family. He touched so many souls. Hopefully, we can be comforted in that he is at peace and his bright light still remains lit in our heart and our souls.
