He attended Fort Lee High School and was a scholar athlete. He played 4 years of baseball and he loved basketball as well. Miles continued his education at Syracuse University and would have been in his junior year.
His parents, Ralph and Debbie, have established a scholarship fund to be awarded to a deserving scholar athlete from the Fort Lee High School Senior Class. Their hope is to continue this scholarship for years to come, by doing so, they will be honoring Miles' memory while helping deserving students.
Ralph and Debbie would also like to purchase a memoriam in honor of Miles: a new message board to be placed in front of Fort Lee High School. It will state, In Memory of Miles E. Reme.
Please help these wishes of Miles' parents come true in honor of their son.
Your donations will be greatly appreciated to help keep Miles' memory alive and to continue to help a deserving scholar athlete. [More Information]
