Robert (Bob/Bubba) Cunningham Myles, III passed away quietly at home in Rathdrum, Idaho on Monday, November 16, 2020 with his long-time partner Lynne Stilkey ,his cat Sniper and dog Sam at his side.
Bubba was larger than the life he was given. Anyone who met him would understand! Whether you knew Bob for 1 minute or a lifetime, he left a lasting impression. Bob never met a stranger. You were just someone he hadn’t started a conversation with yet.
In 1985 Bob established Myles Tree Stump Removals and his entrepreneurial spirit flourished. He was well respected in the business community both in Fairfield County, CT where he started and Kootenai County, ID where he made his home since 2004. Bubba was never too busy to help anyone out in a time of need at any time of day or night. His 5 minute estimate could take 2 hours due to the friendships he made with his customers along the way. He was a hard worker and dedicated friend.
Bob was born April 7, 1955 in Mt Kisco, New York; grew up in Westport, Connecticut and attended boarding school at The Devereaux School in West Chester, PA.
He was the son of the late Robert C. Myles Jr. of NYC and Hester Ann Luke of Westport, CT both deceased and the stepson of Francine B. Myles of Groton Long Point, CT and NYC.
Besides his companion Lynne, Bob is survived by his son Bobby and spouse Melanie (Reed) Myles and his son Clinton W. Myles, Sr.; grandchildren Clinton W. Myles, Jr. and Evelyn J. Myles; sisters Sarah Myles, Nancy Richards & Robin Daley; his Goddaughter Alyssa J. Rosa, Godson James Richards and many cousins, nieces and nephews; former wife Debbie Myles Shawver; plus many lifelong friends and admirers.
There will not be a service held at this time. Bob’s family and friends will have a celebration of his life at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to your local St. Vincent de Paul or Humane Society
