Myron J. Tolzman Obituary
Myron J. Tolzman, age 83, passed away on December 25, 2016, at the MacRitchie Unit of Hillsdale Hospital, and in peace now rests with his Lord and Savior Jesus, whom he longed for and loved with all his heart. Myron was born in Vesta, Minnesota on September 1, 1933, the second child of Albert and Bertha Tolzman. Myron lived most of his life in Hopkins, Minnesota, but during his later years lived in Hillsdale.

Myron is survived by his wife Sandy of 61 years and their three children, Mike and Julie Tolzman of Apex, North Carolina, Kari and Doug McArthur of Hillsdale, and Kristi and Patrick Knapp of Franklin, Wisconsin. Myron is also survived by grandchildren Samuel McArthur and Alexandra and Jessica Tolzman. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Almira LaPitz.

Myron was a veteran of the United States Navy, and was proud of having served his country faithfully. He was a member of the American Legion and took seriously his responsibilities as a citizen and patriot. Myron loved America and was a strong and active voice in support of conservative, Christian values. Politics, both national and local, was a favorite topic of conversation for Myron, and he enjoyed friendly debate and well-considered discussion with friends.

Myron was a life-long Lutheran, and a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Hillsdale. His faith in Christ was ever at the center of who he was and what he believed important. Myron loved going to church, attending his Thursday morning men's bible study, adult Sunday school classes and attending church fellowship events. Myron always looked for ways to help his church and congregation, even after illness made it impossible for him to worship and participate actively. He was a voracious reader of the Bible, of books on church history and the Christian faith, and he loved talking at length about and sharing with others the things that he read. His best friends were from among the people of St. Paul's, and he loved them dearly, was ever concerned about their welfare.

Myron's family would like to thank Pastors Dan Johnson and Scott Johnson, and the congregation of St. Paul's, for their many prayers, visits and loving support. With sincere gratitude for the enormity of their care and effort, thanks also to Dr. Dustin Kimball and the staff of the MacRitchie unit, who steadfastly and lovingly watched over Myron during his long period of hospitalization.

Those who knew Myron will remember well his booming voice, his hearty laugh, his warm embrace, and his generosity. Memorial contributions can be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church's community outreach programs, particularly SPARC house, and "A Few Good Men" at Hillsdale College.

A memorial service will be held at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Hillsdale at 11 a.m. Friday, December 30. Visitation at the church will occur before the service starting at 10 a.m. A luncheon will be provided following the service.

Arrangements are entrusted to the VanHorn-Eagle Funeral Home. For online condolences, please visit www.eaglefuneralhomes.com.
