Lewis Miles — Mr. Sears, as so many in Pawhuska called him — passed on to be with Jesus on Feb. 2, 2014 after a brief and courageous battle with cancer and C.O.P.D.

Lewis was a proud member of First Baptist Church of Pawhuska for 47 years and a World War II Navy Veteran.

He was buried Feb 5, 2014 in Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minn.

He was preceded in death by his parents Feby and Ethel Miles.

He is dearly missed by his devoted wife Vida; daughter Janice, son-in-law Paul Grizzell, granddaughter Ashleigh, grandson Nicholas, sister Shirley Phillips and nephew Mike Phillips.
