In loving memory of Charles Eugene “Gene” Wiles, we celebrate his 12 years on this Earth.

Born Nov. 1, 1998, Gene was the son of Bradley Lynn Wiles and Cathy Sue (Martin) Wiles of Hagerstown, Md.

He is survived by Charles Austin Wiles and Martha Jean (Pryor) Wiles, paternal grandparents of Boonsboro, Md.; Arlan Eugene Martin and Doris Louise (Shafer) Martin, maternal grandparents of Hagerstown; Alta Elizabeth Martin, maternal great-grandmother of Hagerstown; two sisters, Tessa Elaine Wiles and Macayla Gracelyn Wiles, both of Hagerstown; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He attended Clear Spring Middle School, where he just completed the seventh grade as an honor-roll student, even though he hated school work. He was a member of Five Forks Brethren in Christ Church, where he was a member of the Youth Group and the Archery Club. He also was a member of the Washington County 4-H Dairy Club and Swine Club.

Aside from his family, the love of Gene’s life was cows, pigs, tractors and everything on the Heaven Sent family farm. Gene was a true farm boy at heart, who loved life itself. Outside in the field, on the tractor was where he wanted to be. Life is meant to be lived, and that’s exactly what he did. Do not take any day for granted!

Services will be Saturday June 18, 2011, at 11 a.m. at Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home, 1331 Eastern Blvd. North, Hagerstown, with Pastors Shaun M. Kipe and H. Ray Kipe officiating. Interment will be in Broadfording Cemetery, Hagerstown.

The family will receive friends Friday, June 17, 2011, from 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the funeral home.

The family strongly requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to Washington County 4-H Dairy Club, 7303 Sharpsburg Pike, Boonsboro, MD 21713.
