Late Saturday afternoon, we sent Ed off with love. He was surrounded by family at home, per his wishes. We are deeply sad and just starting to feel the grief and loss. We would like to commemorate Ed by welcoming you all to utilize this platform as a way to share your thoughts and memories, and read what others have had to say about his rich and full life. Thank you for taking time to visit and remember our beloved Ed (Eddie) Miles.
Additionally, two funds are being put in place in honor of Ed's life and achievements. In lieu of flowers or other contributions, the family requests that those wishing to make a gift in tribute to Ed Miles, please consider furthering his legacy by donating to the Ed Miles Memorial Scholarship Fund (UW School of Marine and Environmental Affairs) in support of students focusing on the effects and management of climate fluctuations, and/or the Climate Impacts Group Innovation Fund (UW Climate Impacts Group) in support of science-based efforts to build climate resilience for ecosystems and communities. A link to a donation page for the Ed Miles Memorial Scholarship Fund will be posted to this site as soon as it becomes available.
Furthermore, we will be posting more information, as well as links to other tribute sites that are being planned by Ed's family and colleagues.
