Myles Anthony Allen, 7, of West Fargo, ND, passed away on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 8:43AM at Sanford Hospital, Fargo, ND, trading in his superhero cape for Angel wings.
Myles was born on May 13, 2012 to Josh Taylor Wilkie and Monique Renee Allen in Grand Forks, ND. He was the best friend to his brother, Traeden Allen, 8. “Mighty” Myles Allen brought joy and smiles to everyone who knew him, especially to his family. He was the most loving child and had an extraordinary “old soul” personality, seeming wiser and older than his young years. He was lively, opinionated, and outspoken. To his family, he was soft, loving and caring. Myles loved his iPad, YouTube Videos, dance parties, all types of music, especially 70s music, swimming, comic books, Marvel movies, Transformers, and had an expansive collection of Predator figures and Halloween costumes. Myles took great pride in caring for those he loved.
Myles will never be forgotten and will be remembered for his strength, positive attitude and most of all, his exuberant smile! Though he was taken away too soon, he will always be cherished and will always be in our hearts.
Myles was preceded in death by his dear Uncle Oscar Wilkie III; grandfather, Oscar Wilkie Jr.; great-grandfather, Oscar Wilkie Sr.; great-grandmother, Betty Enno-LaVallie; great-grandfather, Lucien F. Enno; great grandmother, Anne R. Allen; and great-grandmother, Federica H. Bauzon.
Myles is survived by his brother, Traeden Allen, mother, Monique R. Allen and father, Josh T. Wilkie of West Fargo, ND; maternal grandparents, Dr. Joseph and Yolanda Allen of Grand Forks, ND; paternal grandparents, Dawn Wilkie and Michael Ewing of Minot, ND; Aunts Maria Allen and Danielle Wilkie of Fargo, ND, Tameka Allen of Philadelphia, PA; Uncles Joseph Allen Jr. and Jay-Ar Bauzon of Grand Forks, ND; and many cousins, family, and friends who loved him dearly.
