Miles M. Ivers passed away on August 11, 2019. He was born July 22, 1962 and spent all 57 years living in Park City, being a proud Park City native. He spent many hours skiing the runs at Park City Mountain Resort. During his teens, he was an accomplished freestyle skier, and being on the mountain was always a peaceful place for him. Miles became a hot air balloon pilot in 1989 and was lucky enough to make his passion his life’s work. Miles was the proud owner of Park City Balloon Adventures. He loved spending tranquil sunrises in the sky. He was a respected pilot in his many years flying the skies, and made many friends in the ballooning community. The family would like to give thanks to all of you. Each of you were an important part of his life and for that, the family is grateful. He is survived by his children: Miles Parker Ivers, Katherine Ivers and Heather (Kris) Foote; sister, Polly Ivers and niece, Hannah Hall. Preceded in death by his parents: Norma Seppi Ivers and Miles Thomas Ivers.
Miles will be missed by his family, long-time friends and many acquaintances in town. The next time you see a balloon floating gracefully through the skies please raise a toast in honor of our much-loved dad, brother, uncle and friend!
