Brian D. "Doug" Wiles, age 61 of Defiance, peacefully passed away on Tuesday morning, August 24, 2021 at CHP Defiance Area Inpatient Hospice Center.   
He was born on January 23, 1960 to Gordon and Mary (Bailey) Wiles in Greenfield, Indiana.

Doug was a great athlete, and was honored to be a member of The Defiance High School Athletic Hall of Fame from his records set in Cross Country and Track. He had a good heart, always looking out for his neighbors, and helping with lawn care and snow removal for others.
