Myron was a 1933 Columbian High School graduate and a lifelong resident of Tiffin. He was a proud WWII veteran who served in the United States Navy from1943 to1945 as a medic in the Philippines, where he was nicknamed “Pappy” since he was nearly thirty years old when he was drafted.

Myron’s jobs included working at Myers Funeral Home, Tiffin Glass House and he then retired from General Electric in 1978 after 15 years of service. He was a member of the VFW of Green Springs, Post 6067.

Myron was the rock of his family. Through many tragedies, he remained strong for those around him. He was a dedicated family man who faithfully attended his grandchildren’s sporting and other events. He was easily spotted in the crowd with his smiling eyes and driving cap.

Myron was an avid reader and visitor to the library. Donations may be made to his memory to the Seneca County Library in care of Traunero Funeral Home, 214 South Monroe St., Tiffin, Ohio 44883, 419-447-3113.
