JON MYHAL Obituary
MYHAL, Jon Of Conyers, GA passed away Sunday, June 5, 2016 at Emory University Hospital, in Atlanta, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born in Newburyport, MA to the late Peter and Dorothy Myhal and was preceded in death by his brothers; Peter and Joel Myhal. Jon retired from his position with IBM, working at the State of Georgia, and specialized in mainframe and network communications. In earlier years, he held similar positions at Tyco International and Parker Brothers. During the Vietnam War years, he served on nuclear submarines for the U. S. Navy. He could always be depended on to lend a hand to others and enjoyed searching for solutions to complicated issues. In his free time, he enjoyed playing golf and traveling the world as much as possible. Surviving Jon are his loving wife, Susan (Ferguson) Myhal, his sister; Maryjo Medford of Meriden, CT, and his step-children; Jonathan Ferguson of Greenacres, FL and Holly Ferguson of Winterville, GA. There will be no public service, but the family will hold a private memorial at a later date.
