Eric Lee Miles
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Eric Lee Miles at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Monday February 8, 2021. A life-long resident of Fredericton, he was a son of the late Lee Branscombe Miles and Winifred (Demmings) Miles.
"Huggy", as he was affectionately known, spent his younger years actively involved in sports. He played Rugby for FHS and UNB, and he also played hockey for FHS; he worked as a goal judge for hockey games for UNB and the Fredericton Express. Eric loved harness racing and spent a great deal of time at Fredericton Raceway. He was also a member of the Fredericton Horseman’s Association. Eric spent over 30 years employed with the Province of New Brunswick at the Department of Transportation.
He is survived by a sister, Katherine Bishop; a brother, James Miles (Regi); niece, Lisa Lambert (Mark); nephews, Lee Bishop (Erika), Craig Miles, Kurtis Miles (Tracey); several cousins. Besides his parents, Eric was predeceased by brother-in-law Gerald Bishop and nephew Daniel Bishop.
Due to Covid restrictions, there will be no visitation or service at this time. A graveside committal service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations in Eric’s memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Diabetic Association of Canada or the Fredericton Horseman’s Association.
