"Steve [has] always [been] someone to look up to and go to with any questions because, for more than 29 years, he worked to keep the residents happy and proud to be living in the town of Manlius," she said.
Recreation Supervisor Kristine Zingaro is thankful to have worked with Miles for more than a decade.
"This was my first job in municipal recreation," she said. "Steve made it a great place to work, with his knowledge of recreation, the town of Manlius and his love for what he did."
Miles extends a huge thank you to his staff, Kenyon, Zingaro and secretary Jackie Maher: "Without such a great team, we would not be nearly as successful."
His retirement plans include a few months relaxing at home before seeking part-time employment.
"I like to stay busy and productive," he said. "Putting a smile on someone else's face is something we should all try to do everyday."
