Prayers and thoughts to the family during this celebration of life. Myron was "one of a kind", incredibly hard working on and off the farm, talented mechanic, and devoted family man. As my brother, I'll miss him greatly and think back to the many days of our childhood adventures, growing/working on the farm, and looking forward to what life would bring. Rest easy Myron and embrace the family that is surely waiting for you.......God bless and cheers! Love and miss you. Merlin and Judy

Dear Uncle Myron,
I remember when I was small and you were kind and strong. Making us laugh during family holidays and always helping others and loving your family as life has moved along. You are a true success as you lived well, laughed often and loved much. As a farmer you never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty and what you could make of it. You will be missed by all of us and I pray for your familys comfort and strength. The day you died your body had completed the work it came to do, and your soul was free leave and as you enter into heaven give grandpa and my dad a hug for me.

Dawn Vogt (Nesiba) Apr 7 2022 8:59 PM

Saddened to learn of Myron's passing. He was a hard working, good guy who so loved his family. Sending my sympathy to your family and prayers for comfort with God holding you in his hands.
