Miles Anthony Hall was born on February 15, 1996. He was the first born to his proud parents, Scott and Taun Hall. Miles spent the vast majority of his life in Walnut Creek. He attended Parkmead Elementary School, Walnut Creek Intermediate School and graduated from Las Lomas High School as a member of the Class of 2014.
Miles was a brilliant self taught musician who composed beautiful music. He learned to play guitar, piano and crafted eloquent beats on his computer. He also produced music for his friends which helped them express themselves and realize their musical potential. His music was amazing and was a gift to those who heard it.
Miles was often seen riding his beach cruiser bike around his neighborhood and downtown Walnut Creek. He said he loved the feel of the wind blowing on his face and hair. His favorite destinations were Civic Park or Heather Farms where he enjoyed hanging out.
Miles was kind hearted, sweet, and had an infectious smile that would light up a room. He could walk into any room and instantly bond with people and make them feel comfortable. He was gentle, funny, and his playful spirit would constantly make his friends and family laugh. He was a beautiful soul who brought so much joy to his family, friends, and community.
Miles had an inquisitive mind and wanted to know literally everything. The only limit to his questions was the patience of the person he was asking. His inquiring mind was never satisfied. He listened to every response to the questions he asked. However, if he didn't truly believe the response he would research or test the subject on his own until he found his own suitable answers. His friends and family quickly learned they had to answer truthfully, and often "I don't know" was the best you could do.
Family was very important to Miles. He spent many hours reading and discussing the Bible with his grandmother Edi, traveling with his Granny, Auntie, Happy Pappy and Grand Mommy. He spent holidays rough-housing with his cousins. He loved camping and snowboarding with his extended family of friends and neighbors. The most important person in Miles' life was his little sister Alexis. He loved her more than anything in the world and protected her at all costs. She was his best friend and their bond was unbreakable.
Miles suffered from mental illness, an affliction he battled the best he could. Unfortunately Miles lost the battle, but not to mental illness. He lost to the system that failed him. Miles lost his life in order to bring awareness to this growing problem. Mental illness is real and prevalent, but change is coming. Miles' family and friends are determined to bring about this change.
Miles left this earth on June 2, 2019.
