Myron was born April 25, 1923, in St. Louis. He served his country in the U.S. Army, following the attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1954, he married Helen, and they were married 58 years, living happily in Kansas City, Mo., until 2002, when they moved to Houston to be with their children.
Myron’s great pleasures in life included his many bowling leagues and tournaments, spending time with his large, loving family and playing Caribbean stud poker. He loved his food and never missed a meal. His children and grandchildren remember him telling hysterical jokes and stories about different people in his life.
