We Remember

KRAHN, Miles Herbert

December 4, 1958 — May 25, 2015


Miles passed away peacefully May 25, 2015 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Miles is survived by his wife Colleen, his children Mark (Andra), Brent (Colleen), Jessica (Justin) and stepsons Jeremy (Kim) and Joshua.  Miles was a loving grandfather to Georgia, Owen, Conrad, Mitchell, Benjamin, Natalie and Sarah, and loving brother to Glen (Leslie) and Beverley (Carl).

Miles was born in Saskatoon on December 4th, 1958 to Herbert and Anne Krahn, living there until 1970 when the family moved to Vancouver. In 1972 the family relocated to Calgary where Miles completed high school at Dr. E.P. Scarlett and began his journey to become a successful innovator and entrepreneur.   Miles began his career in construction with his father and brother in 1978.   During this time he also co-owned and operated a chain of drapery stores with his family.  In 1986 he combined his love for food and passion for cooking to launch a sophisticated production facility for his highly successful line of salad dressings.  In 2001 Miles moved his family and Meadow Ridge Homes operations to Kelowna where he continued the family legacy of building quality custom homes.  With Miles’s attention to detail and his drive for perfection, Meadow Ridge soon became one of Kelowna’s premier award winning homebuilders.

Miles’s passion was his business but his heart was always with family and friends.  It was said upon his passing that Miles lived a 100-year life in his short 56 years on this earth.  Miles was a proud father, devoted family man, a trusted and loyal friend to all, the original “foodie” and a world-class martini maker.

A celebration of Miles’s life will be held at 1PM, June 1st at the Evangel Church 3261 Gordon Drive Kelowna BC.

    I have so many wonderful memories of Miles. I met him when I was in grade 8. We hung around all through high school and remained good friends. I knew I could call him any time and we could pick right up where we left off. I am deeply saddened that I will not hear his laugh, or see his face again, but my memories (along with tons of old pics) will keep him in my heart forever. My sincerest condolences to the entire Krahn family at this very sad time. xoxo
