Miles R. Ford, 66, of Upper St. Clair PA passed away at his home in Black Mountain NC on Thursday, January 9th, from an acute cardiac event.
He was born in Uniontown PA to the late Robert C. Ford and the late Jessie R. Ford and graduated from Uniontown High School in 1971. He earned a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1975 and worked in the air pollution control industry for forty years.
Miles was a long-time active member of Dormont-Mt. Lebanon Sportsmen’s Club and was an instructor for over 20 years with the Jr. Rifle Program. He was an avid sports fan and was particularly passionate about basketball and target shooting. He was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Upper St. Clair, and actively participated in the Genesis Sunday School Class.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lois E. Ford, and sons, C. Graham Ford and T. Clinton Otte-Ford, and their wives, Anne Wagoner-Ford and Becky Otte-Ford; and was the proud Papa to grandchildren Nate and Norah Ford. He is also survived by his siblings, Homer Ford and wife, Soozi Whitten Ford; Linda Ford and husband, Ed Festor; and Virginia Hughes and husband, David Hughes. Miles’ beloved Airedale terrier, Reason, led him on daily walks in the woods and made sure he took plenty of time to play.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 8th, at 11:00am at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Upper St. Clair PA with a reception to follow. Memorial donations may be directed to the Westminster Endowment Fund or a charity of one’s choice.

Deepest condolences to the Ford family on your sudden loss. I am a UHS '71 classmate and always will remember our many years in band, when Miles would turn bright red as he hit the highest notes on his trumpet. May his memory comfort you at this difficult time.
