50-year-old Jeffery Giles died Tuesday in Wichita after becoming ill last Saturday while at a wrestling tournament in Phillipsburg.
Giles was the head high school football coach, junior and senior high head wrestling coach, and he coached junior and senior high track all at the Minneapolis Junior Senior High School.
Jeff Giles was more than a coach; he was a mentor to so many students and adults. Coach Giles will leave a legacy and his walk as a Christian man will never be forgotten.
Memorial services will be at 2:00 P.M., Saturday, February 15 at the First Covenant Church, 2625 E. Magnolia, Salina. Burial will be in Bennington Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Friday at the Wilson Family Funeral Home, Minneapolis; the family will not be present. The family kindly suggests no flowers and ask that memorials be given for the Giles girls college education or the First Covenant Church and may be left in care of Wilson Family Funeral Home, 405 Argyle Avenue, Minneapolis, KS 67467.
