Miles, Marvin Dale

Marvin Dale Miles, age 57, passed away in McKinney, Texas on August 4th, 2019, surrounded by his family.

Born in Guthrie, Oklahoma, Marvin lived and worked in Austin, Texas for the last 20 years and was a highly accomplished and recognized software systems technology professional for Cisco Systems. After graduating with honors from the University of Central Oklahoma in 1984, with a BS in Computer Science, Marvin amassed a long list of technical and leadership accomplishments and awards as he served Sonic Headquarters, Kerr-McGee Corporation, The City of Houston, Sprint Corporation, GTE, and Cisco. In his spare time, he and his business partners started a telecom software company that implemented PCS and Geo-stationary Satellite systems, headquartered in his home in Irving, Texas during the ISDN era.

Marvin was a loving son, brother and uncle who enjoyed spending time with his family. He also enjoyed an array of hobbies that included live music, traveling, hiking, sailing, and most of all, photography. Marvin adored his beagles Krispy and Lexi and they accompanied him on his extensive RV travels, afforded by the remote nature of his work.

Survivors include his parents, Carl and Berniece Miles, his two brothers Garyld Miles and wife Sarah, Ken Miles and wife Camille, and his sister Beverly Saunders; his three nephews Chris Saunders and wife Rebecca, Garrison Miles, and Reid Miles; his seven nieces, Elizabeth Lincoln and husband John, Melissa Sun and husband Jon, Linsey Miles, Anna Marie Albers and husband Kyle, Camryn Franklin, Grace Miles and Carley Franklin; his grand nieces and nephews, Quinn, Charlotte, Wesley, and James Lincoln, Jordana and Elena Sun, and Rylee and Brynleigh Blagg.



A Celebration of Life Service for Marvin will be held at 2:30 PM on Sunday, August 18th, 2019 at the First Presbyterian Church of Edmond, 1001 S. Rankin Street, Edmond, Oklahoma 73034.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to your local Meals-on-Wheels, a cause Marvin passionately supported throughout his adult life.

I remember Marvin as far back as grade school. He was so quiet and always had such a sweet smile. May God call him up a higher at the Heavenly banquet table.

Marvin was just such a great man and skilled coworker.

There were countless times I'd be stuck and Marvin would break out his WD40 Python Genius.

He is missed.

I consider myself fortunate to have known him.

I have the honor to work with Marvin for many years. He had been most helpful with our technical needs, and he was kind and prompt to solve our problems.

His passing is a great lose to us all.

I've known Marvin only via informal chatting at work for some technical issues and he has always lent a helping hand and never did he deny helping me out. Helped in learning a lot of new things at work when I was new join. Very well versed in technical aspect but more so a good mentor. Heartfelt condolences and prayers to his near and dear ones.

It’s with a heavy heart and profound memories of Marvin I write these few lines.

He was an extraordinary person full of grace and amazing kindness. He was truly a “techie” and knew details of all the technologies he managed at office and home.
His quest for newer ideas kept him busy exploring every single day.

For me at Cisco, he was a mentor and leader I respected the most. He would never feel offended for anything you ask and also offered help at any time of the day/night.
Whenever I come to Austin, he would take me around places and once even to San Antonio. I can never forget the wonderful memories I had with him.
Marvin will ever be in our hearts and thoughts of colleagues at Cisco. We miss him dearly.

I am sure the smile he radiated, will lift our lives with hope and love for the future.
