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.
