Myron Buchanan Behney Obituary
March 21, 1916 ~ June 29, 2014
Myron B. Behney, age 98, passed away on June 29, 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
He was born March 21, 1916 in Salt Lake City to Jessie Buchanan Behney and Harry Behney. He was part of South High's first graduating class in 1932. He married his High School sweetheart and love of his life, Marian Louise Ostler, on April 9, 1937, in Los Angeles, California. He later attended the University of Utah. Myron spent several years employed by Eitel-McCullough/Varian as the Production Manager until he retired in 1974.
He is survived by his children: John (Sue) of Running Springs, CA., and Marianne Cooley (Doug) of Cottonwood Heights, UT., four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Marian, and sister Rhea Hansen.
We will miss his sparkling blue eyes, great sense of humor, passion for science, and endless acts of charity. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Friends may call from 5-7 Sunday evening, July 6th, at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary (3401 S. Highland Drive).
There will be a private graveside service on Monday, July 7th.
The family would like to give special thanks to the wonderful staff at Canyon Creek Assisted Living, Health Watch Home Care, and Millcreek Home Health & Hospice, for their comforting service and love.
