Miles Benjamin Romain, 21, of Waldwick, NJ. Loving son, brother, cousin, friend. “Weep not for me though I have gone into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet flight for I am at peace, my soul is at rest. In your memory I live on.” The son of Pierre Romain and the late Mary Verdicchio Romain, Miles departed this earth into God’s loving arms while attending college in Florida on November 6, 2020. He is finally at peace in the beloved arms of his loving and cherished mother. Miles had a special connection to God. His trust in the Lord was remarkable. His faith in the Lord was unquestionable, despite any hardships or adversities. Miles is survived by his loving brothers whom he adored tremendously; Pierre Romain Jr. of Las Vegas, Nevada, Trey and Noah Romain of Waldwick, NJ, and his four-legged loyal best friend Leo. Forever the warrior spirit, he was a graduate of Waldwick High School. Also, his survivors include his grandmother Rose Romain of Haiti and Thomas and Jane Verdicchio of NH. He was predeceased by his cousin, Racheal Verdicchio Morris. Miles had a very large and loving family consisting of aunts, uncles and cousins almost too numerous to count from Haiti, Canada and the US who will all miss him dearly! Miles was a fun-loving young man with a quick wit, an infectious laugh, a beautiful welcoming smile, and a kind and compassionate spirit.
