R.I.P. MiahBy admin • May 24th, 2010 • Category: News
Snowboarder Mag just informed us of some sad news, Jerimiah James Pebley, better known as Miah, passed away. For years Miah was a fixture at snowboard events as part of Snow Park technologies, which is how our paths crossed way back when. He was always down to share a hotel room or drink a beer, and he will certainly be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. Brad Farmer wrote a touching memorial for Miah on the Snowboarder mag site, including quotes from people who knew him best.
Most of Jerimiahâ€™s friends knew him as â€œMiahâ€ and as a person who had a larger than life personality, a priceless sense of humor and as someone who was just a good human being. He grew up in Big Bear and one of his best friends during those years was Janna Meyen Weatherby. â€œMiah was always there for me when I needed support,â€ says Janna. â€œIt makes me smile when I think of how heâ€™d tell stories of us growing up in Big Bear and terrorizing the neighborhood. I heard them all more than once but thatâ€™s a special bond you share with those who you grow up with and go through life together with.â€
