Stephen Miles -

We will miss you Dad, but your legacy will live on through your family and people you have touched.

Peter cribb -

Rip my old friend. True gentleman, honest and genuine human being. Was so proud of his family

Brett Ettridge -

In remembrance of Julian Miles, a man respected by all within the baseball community. He was not just a man of words but a contributor who left an enduring mark. As a loving husband and loyal friend, Julian's leadership and courage were evident. A proud father , he instilled essential values in his sons, ensuring the Miles name stood for respect, honesty, and commitment to a cause. At peace now with his loving wife, Julian's legacy lives on, and he's likely sharing a few frothies with my late father, Dean Ettridge. Julian you've left an indelible mark of all that had the pleasure to meet you. In Gods hands.

Richard Leslie -

Very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Your dad and mom made Bonnie and I feel like part of the family when we visited. He will be missed by many.

Wendy, Steve and Noel -

Dear Matt and Family, We remember your Dad, Julian, as a kind, intelligent man. Having an interest in historical events he loved to share his books with Steven, understanding how history is so important for younger generations to know and understand. His practical advice gained from a successful working life, another simple but valuable trait, comes to mind when Wendy asked about how to address an issue dealing with a Bank ! Embracing his extended family, many coffee outings and chats with Noel, a trip to Moonta to learn more of Noel’s family history, visiting places of significance, sharing an appreciation of one’s heritage. Oh, and taking care of Noel when he absentmindedly wandered away – ever reliable, Julian found him ! Julian loved fussing over the dogs – ‘children’ of a different kind - quite a few in this family who knew his kindness. All wonderful memories, to keep forever. RIP Julian. xxx

Carol -

I will remember Julian as a very proud husband, father and grandfather. He was inquisitive, a history buff, avid reader and someone who always needed his computer and phone fixed! Maybe modern technology was a mystery! Like my Dad he lost lovely Mary too soon, so I’m pleased for the coffee and scone catch ups they’d share. I’ll miss our conversations, his love of his fur grand pooches,the Bombers, and his praise for my safe driving! He was a lovely father in law who I’ll miss, but I see his strengths in Matt and Steve, and know his legacy will endure x

Ned Carey -

A good honest person, who always took care of the underdog. Your forbears in Tipperary would be proud of you. Rest In peace Julian.

Colin Leaker and family -

We have known Julian and his family for over 70 years, sharing an employer for over 20 and in National Service in the late 1950s. Over those years we are proud to have called Julian a friend. Easy to find words to honour him. Absolute integrity, honesty and care for others. An example was the commitment to his work on behalf of members of the Commonwealth Bank Officers Association, sometimes at some risk to himself. Not so common in Julian's lifetime were people like him who took a close interest in Community and Political issues. In this he closely followed the example of his father Tom. Australia could do with many more like him. Vale Julian Peter Miles. In every sense a good bloke who will be greatly missed.

Simon O'Connell -

Thinking of you all as you celebrate Julian's life. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a memorable laugh. I enjoyed his company. Proud to have him as my Uncle.

Trevor Wortmeyer -

Julian was my first Boss at CBA Glenelg in 1970 He immediately gained my respect by his matter of fact leadership style, but I came to realise he had a softer side. In my first years at Glenelg I was dealt a few curve balls with my parents divorcing and both my grandparents dying. Julian’s softer side became evident and has made me eternally grateful for his leadership, his kindness and his caring. One special day an envelope arrived for me in the internal mail, at that stage I had moved on from Glenelg branch some years earlier - it was from Julian. He had sent me a birthday card with a lovely message - for my 21st birthday. How did he remember and why? Cos he cared and did the little things. As the years wore on I saw him go from success to success and gain the support and love of his employees as he had done with me. His attributes and the way he treated people has stayed with me and has helped me realise how being kind and small gestures mean so much in our lives. Great lessons from a great man. Thank you Julian

Yvonne Learmonth -

One of life's gentlemen: husband, father, friend and colleague.

Roland WATTS -

Julian had a profound effect on my working life. He was honest and forthright; a man of conviction. I valued his guidance and our association.

Kelly Syron Ginley -

Thinking of you all tomorrow. We will miss Uncle Julian, who was a true gentleman and a lovely uncle. Him and Aunty Mary always had a place in my heart. Great memories with them both and now they can be together once more. Our thoughts are with you all. Mathew, Stephen and families hugs from the West Coast Syron’s.

Mike Farrelly -

You are sorely missed Mr Miles. Your passing leaves a big hole in the previous generation, like their team has lost one of it’s star players. I will remember your quiet enthusiasm, intelligence and gentle manner, traits you and Mary instilled in both your sons who I’m sure carry your name and legacy with pride.
