A well-known Doctor from Osage Beach has died at the age of 69.

Dr. Miles David Neis was an Internal Medicine Specialist, whose office has been located in Osage Beach in the Ezard’s Ace Hardware plaza for several decades.

Dr. Neis graduated with honors in 1977 from Pittsburgh State University and served seven years as a Physician in the US Air Force, before coming to the Lake.

At this time, his family is planning a private funeral service at a later date.


Doctor Miles Neis, 69, of Osage Beach, Missouri, passed away on November 10, 2020 in the comfort of his home.

Miles was born on October 27 1951, in Harrisonville, Missouri, to Harry and Ethel Neis. He went to Olathe High School and graduated from Pittsburgh State University. He continued his education and obtained a medical degree. He then spent six years in the Air Force as a physician.

Miles was a loving husband, father, brother, son, friend and most memorably, an incredible doctor. He dedicated his life to medicine starting in the Air Force. After leaving the services, he continued to practice medicine in Osage Beach, Missouri for many years. His bedside manner was respected and adored by all. Miles had a hilarious sense of humor and was always seen driving the sports cars he loved. He will be incredibly missed by all of the many, many lives he’s touched.

Miles is survived by his wife, Neenah Duenke-Neis, his daughter and son-in-law Kimberly and Brandon Custer, daughter Kirsten Duncan, his two grandsons Brayden and Breckin Custer, his mother Ethel June Neis, and his two brothers Thomas Neis and HB Neis. And, of course, his beloved dogs.

He is predeceased by his father Harry Neis.

The family held a private memorial last weekend and asks that any donations made in Miles’ honor go towards The American Humane Society, The Best Friends Animal Society, Doctors Without Borders and to End The Backlog
