Myles was raised on the Blood Reserve in the Old Agency Area by his mother Annette and with his sisters Tawny and Beth. He started playing hockey at the age of 5 years old, and began riding steers at the age of 12, he eventually moved into bull riding, his lifelong passion. As a young boy, Myles started learning how to make bull riding ropes, which as an adult he turned into a business after an injury sidelined him. He was very proud of his business, Myles Wolf Wells Ropes, which was rapidly growing as he was shipping ropes all over North America to various Professional Bull Riders. The family would like to thank the Doctors and Nursing Staff at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, Intensive Care Unit, with special thanks to Dr. Low. Also, thank-you to all those who have sent in donations and have been supportive to those close to him at this difficult time.
