Ricky Giles

June 28, 1997 — March 22, 2019

Ricky James Giles Jr. "R.J." was born Saturday, June 28, 1997.

R.J., our angel flew away Friday, March 22, 2019.

R.J. was quiet, kind, honest, loving, smart, dependable, hardworking and adventurous. He was everyone's "little buddy". Everyone who came in contact with R.J. was immediately drawn in by his heart, integrity and loyalty. If you were lucky enough to spend time with R.J., his personality and humor would always leave you smiling and laughing. He never had an unkind word for anybody.

He enjoyed experiencing the open road on his motorcycles, the outdoors, music, video games, family reunions, hiking, blowing stuff up, going to Moab, and spending time with his family.

R.J. was a very hard worker and worked for Dahl Construction for 6 years as an equipment operator. He was always willing to help his dad on the farm.

Loving son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend. R.J. is survived by his parents, Rick and Kelli Giles, siblings Kari, Aundrae (Maddison) Alisia, RiKell, nephews and nieces Braelee, Draegon, Jasperr, Ryker, Kingston and Alice, girlfriend Holly Crumpton, grandparents Max and Veola Gines, and Janet Giles. He is preceded in death by his grandpa James Giles, brother Todd, and Uncle Bart Gines.

In the words of his parents, "Most only dream of angels, but for 21 short years we held one in our arms".

We are overwhelmed as a family with all of the heartfelt sympathy, acts of kindness and support for everything that has been done to support us. Words alone cant express our sincere gratitude and love for everyone that has been here to support our family during this difficult time.

We will celebrate his life Saturday, March 30th at 11am at the Maple Highlands Ward LDS Chapel, 352 South 2550 East, Spanish Fork, UT.

Viewings will be held on Friday, March 29th 6pm-8pm and Saturday, March 30th 9:30am-10:45am at the Maple Highlands Ward LDS Chapel, 352 South 2550 East, Spanish Fork, UT, prior to funeral services. Interment will be at the Spanish Fork Cemetery. Friends may view and sign the guestbook for RJ at
