Paul Miles

Paul graduated from Carlsbad High School in New Mexico and New Mexico Military Academy in Santa Fe, NM and was a 2nd Lt in the Army.  His first employer was Stearns-Roger Corp. as a material expeditor. He was a construction manager for over 30 years with Raytheon and later went on to own Morrison International Construction in Richland, WA. In 1999 his business went global with contracts in over 20 countries. For the last seven years of his professional career, Paul utilized his managerial skills and breadth of knowledge at Apollo Construction to establish their overseas construction division. 

After retirement in 2015, Paul and Marty traveled, golfed and spent quality time with family and friends.  He was a superb host with the unique ability to make people feel comfortable and special and was always available to provide assistance to those in need.  

The funeral service will be held Sunday, July 14 at 1:30 pm at Einan’s Sunset Gardens in Richland, WA.

  • Paul was one of the kindest gentlemen I have ever met. We met through Morrison Construction and community organizations. He was honest, friendly, professional and always willing to lend a hand. I am glad I was able to spend time with a true American success story and family man.

  • I worked for Paul at Apollo Federal Services from 2012 - 2015. A great boss, terrific mentor and even better person. He was extremely loyal to his staff and a great role model for all who had the opportunity to work alongside him. A true leader. He spoke often of how much his family meant to him and he was able to strike that work/life balance that we all strive for. He had a saying that has stayed with me for years and has proven true countless times. The saying went, "Nothing ever stays the same". So to his family, I'm positively certain his words will end up being right once again. Your sadness and feeling of loss will at some point change and you will be able to reflect back on the wonderful memories you have of him and what a kind, honorable man that he was to everyone he came in contact with. He will definitely be missed and I'm so glad that I had a chance to know and learn from him.

  • my sincere condolences to Paul’s family and friends. I knew Paul through business dating back to a project in ND. Paul’s smile, handshake, and welcoming voice, I’ll always remember. He was a class act and friend. May God welcome him home, and bless those left behind with faith and peace.
