Hammond, Miles Philip (February, 5, 2020 – February 9, 2021)
Miles passed away peacefully at home with his loving parents Kate and Kent by his side. Miles spent most of his short life battling cancer, but he met every challenge with a smile, and anyone who met him felt the pure joy that radiated from his very core. He loved laughing, peekaboo, mixing tunes at his DJ booth, ripping the door off of his toy school bus, and eating clementines. Miles taught many lessons during his time with us, and we will forever celebrate the indelible marks he made on many lives.
Cherished grandson of Jim & Cheryl Hammond and Brian & Chris Cavan. Treasured nephew to Sean & Charlene, Gavin & Sarah and Neil & Claire. Sweetest baby cousin to Adyline, Bennett, Finn, Zephy, Benjamin & Maeve. Miles will always be remembered in the hearts of his extended family and all of Kate and Kent’s dear friends.
Special thank yous to Miles’ dedicated oncology teams at Sick Kids and Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial, to his healthcare providers here in Muskoka and to the CHAMPS War Amps program.
