Myron "Mike" Bristol, 71, lifelong resident of West Burlington, PA passed away while surrounded by his family on Sunday, January 12, 2014, at the Bradford County Manor following a courageous battle with cancer. Myron Larue Bristol, "Mike" to family and friends, was born on the family farm in W. Burlington Twp. on November 18, 1942, the son of the late Richard "Dick" and Gladys (Wagner) Bristol. He was a 1960 graduate of Troy High School. Mike loved his life's career as a dairy farmer and The Roundtop Farm was his pride and joy. Home, family, good friends and neighbors meant everything and his grandchildren were very special to Mike. He possessed a great sense of humor, always the jokester. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, golfing and playing softball. Mike and Shirley traveled coast to coast and took several trips to Florida. Most recently, rides in Mike's 2014 Mustang brought many good times. Surviving are his wife, Shirley Preston Bristol; children, Angie (William) Dixon of Troy and David (Kim) Bristol of W.
