Kingston, Jamaica on May 19th, 1962. He was the fifth of ten children born to Icilda and
Charleton Miles, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife Donna-Ann, two
daughters Danielle and Kristen, brothers Mickey, Tony, Dale, Carl, Ronald, Gary and their
wives, and sisters Sandra, (the late) Jem, Marie, Nadia, Heather, Karen and Natalie and their
husbands and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other family members.
While in Jamaica Paul attended Pembroke Hall Primary school, Pembroke Hall Secondary
School, and Trench Town High School. Like his father and brothers, Paul developed a love for
trucking at an early age. He began driving trucks at about seventeen years old and was never
interested in any other profession. He had a love for football (soccer) and was an avid
Manchester United fan. He could be seen playing neighborhood football almost daily as a
youngster and even helped coach his younger daughter Kristen who played football as well. He
loved watching movies, playing dominoes, listening to music and having a good time.
Paul relocated to the United States in 1984 and traveled between New York and Florida where
he lived with his sister Jem and her family. He married the one true love of his life, Donna-Ann
in 1992 and together they had two beautiful daughters. Paul was a true family man as his girls
were of paramount importance to him- he was very dedicated to them. Paul loved life and his
large family and many friends. He was a humble, kind, patient, and loving man who was always
warm and welcoming. To know Paul is to love Paul. He was never judgmental. Paul always
stood for what was right and had a hard time saying “no” to anyone who needed him. He was a
man of character and strength and made the best of any situation handed to him. He handled
life's challenges always with a smile and very little complaints. Paul loved and defended his
family at all costs. Whenever Paul was around, everyone felt safe. He was the great protector.
He had a magnetic spirit which made everyone happy to be around him. All the kids loved being
around Uncle Paul- his smile was infectious. Paul loved the trucking business and never wanted
to do anything else. Though he didn’t like being away from his family, he loved the “open road”.
He also liked to teach the young truckers getting into the business how to drive and handle the
truck. He loved helping others. Paul could fix anything- trucks, cars, radios- you name it, he
could fix it. He was very good with his hands.
Paul’s cooking skills were second to none. He had amazing culinary skills and could cook just
about anything very well. If it wasn’t for his love of trucking, he would probably have been a
chef. He made the best jerk pork this side of the equator and could always be seen over the
barbecue grill. Paul returned to Jamaica in 2013 where he again amassed a wide circle of
friends and family because of his personality. He lived there until his untimely passing. Paul is
loved and will be sorely missed by his family and all who had the pleasure to know him.
