Jay Miles Death, Obituary – Miles served both Upper Perkiomen and Merck as an emergency medical technician during his time in the workforce. He was a member of the Pennsburg Volunteer Fire Company and served as a firefighter in addition to his duties as a chaplain for the organization.
After the passing of a fellow first responder, the community’s emergency personnel are grieving the loss of one of their own. EMT Jay Miles apparently had a stroke while responding to a medical emergency around a month ago. Upper Perkiomen Valley EMS reports that he passed away on Saturday due to complications from the stroke.
Miles required surgery, and subsequently he remained in the hospital for two weeks while he recovered from the procedure. On Saturday, members of the community of Upper Perkiomen Valley paid their final goodbyes to an extraordinary person. Jay Miles changed the course of a significant number of people’s lives throughout the decades that he spent serving the community in many capacities, including as an emergency medical technician, a fireman, and a chaplain.
In Jay’s honor, this page will become inaccessible at the stroke of midnight tonight and will remain that way for the following twenty-four hours. Before I go to bed tonight, I will check this website to see whether the forecast for Tuesday has been updated. In your thoughts and prayers, please remember the people who were close to Jay, including his friends and family, as well as the Upper Perkiomen Valley ambulance and the Pennsburg fire company. I hope you find peace and quiet soon.
