“I had the pleasure of working with John for years through THA and The TN Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration. He was one of the most professional, courteous and helpful persons I have ever met. In his soft spoken manner he assisted our society and was instrumental in promoting the importance of HR in our member institutions. I also knew John through membership in the Jackson Rotary Club when he was district governor. My condolences to the family for your loss. He will be missed.”

“John was a fine person and a wonderful gentleman! He cared so much for his family, friends and the City of Brentwood. He and I talked frequently about projects - he was always so interested in what was happening. The new traffic light at the subdivision entrance was his passion - we are only a couple of months away from the installation. He will be smiling down when the power is turned on! Bless you John Miles!!!”
