Even as a young press operator at The Washington Post, working amid the din of printing presses rolling at deadline, Royce Miles stood out from the crowd.
He took pride in his work, and had a love for print.
"He was clearly both good at his job and interested in learning more," said Donald Graham, The Post's former publisher.
Miles' career in the newspaper industry took him far from The Post's press room to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, where he arrived in 1998 and eventually rose to the organization's No. 2 executive post.
Along the way, Miles, who left the Journal Sentinel in 2016, never missed an opportunity to lend a helping hand to others.
