My sincere condolences to Joyce and the rest of the family on the passing of Myron. I did not know him for a long time, but, when we did meet up, usually at the Brau Bros, where he had a hand in naming the Bohemian Pilsner, he was a fun person to listen to, talking of the country place by Ghent, later moving into Marshall. Heaven has gained a unique man. Wes Jenson

I am so sorry that I will not be at Myron's memorial service tomorrow. My condolences to you Joyce and to all of you're fine family.
From the first time I met Myron nearly a half century ago, I always enjoyed his company. We both had many mutual interests.
I still remember the tours of Danube H. S. and Southwest State University that he took me on along with his wrestling coaching stories and how proud he was that he could be teaching at the university level at his extended age. I have many good memories
of Myron, and I am fortunate to have known him.
God Bless you all.

My sympathy to Joyce and your family as you travel this journey without your husband, dad, and grandpa. Myron certainly was blessed with a loving family and he was so very proud to watch you all grow to adulthood. He took great pride in sharing stories about growing up on the farm in Hassan Valley Township. He enjoyed visiting the area in later years, showing his appreciation for those humble beginnings. For many years Myron, Joyce and the 'kids' had a standing lawnchair/blanket reservation on the west side of the park, for the annual Pola-Czesky Days parade and celebration in Silver Lake. There, Myron would make connections with relatives, former classmates and students, as well as the many friends he so easily made thru the years. Myron was a great conversationalist and always had a circle of folks around him. I know there are many heartwarming stories about 'Mike' and may you always remember them with a smile. God Bless this humble servant, and bring you a sign of peace and comfort.
