  • Miles Joseph Moffat, 12, Died Friday June 4, 2021, in an automobile accident on Mountain View Corridor and 9000 South.

    Miles was born February 1, 2009, in Murray, Utah to Richard Adam Moffat and Heather Lynn Moffat. Miles had just graduated from 6th grade at Antelope Elementary School and was ready and excited for the next chapter in life as a 7th grader in middle school. His Heavenly Father has other plans and graduated him from his schooling here on earth.

    Our family knew Miles was an AMAZING young man, but we are continually finding out that we have just had a glimpse of how amazing and special he really was and why Heavenly Father needed him back home. Miles loved playing baseball, going camping, fishing, playing with friends and playing catch in the front yard with his Brothers, Sister, Dad and even Mom. Miles was very creative and always searching out things he could learn to do from Tik Tok, You Tube and the internet such as cooking and baking new stuff, making baking soda bombs, making a home made stress ball for mom to use while going to school, making You Tube channels or tik toks to get followers and even following his brothers you tube posts so that as Miles would say “He can get more likes for him”.

    Miles could become friends with anyone and strike up a conversation with a total stranger. We can see the impact his life had on others from the GREAT outpouring of love and support from Family, Friends, Neighbors and People that never knew or had the chance to meet Miles. Miles’ life has touched his baseball community in a great way. His family has spent countless hours at the baseball field for the past 13 years. Miles wasn’t afraid to try any position on the baseball field and was becoming an excellent Pitcher and Catcher following in his Brothers and Dads footsteps. He has a very competitive nature that helped him to be a great leader and teammate. The Copper Hills baseball league is paying special tribute by naming the field 4 at the Ron Wood baseball complex to “Miles Moffat Field”.

    Miles was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Miles had a strong testimony and willingness to serve. Miles was in the Deacons Quorum and served as Secretary in the Deacons Quorum Presidency. Miles loved the Temple, but never had the opportunity to go while here on earth. Miles lived a Christlike life and was an example of that to his Family and Friends. Miles would be the one to remind or ask his Family to read the scriptures or say family prayers.

    Miles is survived by his parents Richard and Heather, Sister Clara Jean, Brothers Carter Andruw and Max Adam, his 2 dogs Leo and Scout, Grandparents Brad and Wendie Woodford and Roy and Jill Moffat, 8 Aunts, 7 Uncles, 24 Cousins and countless others.

    Funeral Services will be on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 11:00 am at the Sycamores Stake Center, 7580 Abbotsbury Lane, West Jordan, Utah. Viewings will be held on Friday, June 11, 2021, from the hours of 6:00 – 8:00 pm and Saturday from 10:00 – 10:40. Both viewings will be held at the church.

    Dear Moffat family, We’re so sorry for your loss. This is such a beautiful tribute to Miles. He was an amazing young man. So full of life to share with all of you. He will surely be missed by his family and friends. His beautiful spirit has left this mortal life and has returned home to his Heavenly Father. His life was cute to short here on earth for his family and friends to enjoy. He has a larger purpose to fulfill with his Heavenly Father. May the Lord ‘s loving arm’s embrace all of you at this time, and may the Lord bless, comfort and keep you safe. You will enjoy Miles again. Such a blessing to know.

    I had the honor of sharing this first year at Antelope Canyon with Miles as his principal. Time and time again, Miles showed kindness and compassion in the various situations that arise in school. Even at times when others around him got angry or were unkind, he always kept a level head. He intuitively knew that all people have worth and he gained respect from all social groups because of that. He was instinctively a peace maker and always tried to help others find a better path during a hard time. Miles was also very unassuming. He never had to be the center of attention. I believe that's why he had so many friends. The other kids just knew he had a good heart and fair motives. Miles is a gentle hero in my book and always will be.

    Miles was clearly such a beautiful presence in this world to all that knew him. Seeing the outpour of support and messages you are receiving is truly humbling. As Miles soul has moved on, he will always be with you. Please know I am thinking of your family during this time with empathy and love.

    Dear Moffat Family, My heart breaks for you during this difficult time. I had the great privilege to be Miles’ music teacher this school year. He was a blessing to me during this unusual year. I could always count on him to have a kind heart to others, come in with a good attitude, try his best, and of course show respect to everyone. He volunteered to come and help my kindergartners with their music program, and he was so kind and warm with them. It touched my heart to see his generous spirit. Miles was a truly special child and I am so thankful to have known him this year. I am in Texas and am so sorry I cannot be at his service. You have been in my heart and mind, and I hope some peace can be found during this time. Sincerely, Mrs. Roxanne Elliot

    We are in the baseball community and heard about your tragedy. We are grandparents now but have a family of boys …all baseball players. And now we have grandsons that play. We also had our son pass away. It is heartbreaking. We want to send our love and know that this is a difficult journey. We will remember you in our prayers.

    Dear Moffat Family, Please accept loving condolences from someone who doesn’t know you or Miles. I work at Antelope Canyon and while I never came in contact with Miles, I’m sure we passed in the hallway and maybe even exchanged smiles. I like to hope I did. This connection is enough for me to wrap you in my thoughts, prayers and love at this time. I don’t know what you are going through, but I do know that a loving Heavenly Father knows what you are experiencing and will provide the strength and peace you need to move forward in this life. All my love, Jenny Brown

    My heart is with your family. My interaction with Miles was so brief but yet it left a special impression on me. I am a 5th grade teacher at Antelope Canyon and had the opportunity to have Miles on my kickball team during the last few weeks of school. After observing and interacting with Miles just a few times, I commented to his teacher, "Miles seems like such a neat boy!" He was kind, happy, a great sport, and unselfish. He truly stood out to me. I cannot imagine how many lives he touched in his 12 years, but I am grateful to be one of them. May your family be blessed with peace at this time and may sweet memories of Miles lift your hearts going forward.

    I am a 2nd grade school teacher at Antelope Canyon Elementary School. On several occasions this year Miles listened to my class read papers they had written. I was touched by his tender heart as he gave encouragement and accolades to the students. He had the ability to reach into their hearts and make them feel like their work was exceptional. This is a quality that Miles has perfected. He was genuine in his compliments and encouragement, and the students new it. At the end of the year one of my students said that having Miles listen to his paper was one of their favorite things about the year. This unique quality is one that Miles gets to keep. Great work is still to come.
