Was thinking about Myron and was sorry to see that he had passed in October. I will always remember my visits to get popcorn for my staff at American Bank in the skyway. You were very blessed to have such a wonderful man in your family.

Camey, Trudy & Cindy -

I just learned of your father's passing. What a dear, sweet man your father was. Seeing your parents together, was always a treat, to say the least. Always with a kind word or smile to pick up my day. Your parents were the kindest people I've ever met. How happy they must be to be back together in heaven!

Trudy, Cindy and Camey, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. I know how hard it is to lose a parent, especially after enjoying so many years together. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and your families. Remember all the good times.

I was sorry to read of Myron's passing. I had the pleasure of interacting with him quite frequently in the popcorn shop, first in the Bremer building, then in the US Bank building. He always greeted me with a smile and a kind word. What a sweet and gentle man. He is now reunited with his beloved wife and I imagine that together, they are making popcorn up in heaven! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you mourn his passing.

Our condolences to all of you for the passing of Myron.
Max found him to be faith and intergity and very sincere and most interesting to talk with about anything. We will miss hearing from him and talking.

Myron was such a sweet man. Met him in 2002 or 2003 when U.S. Bank moved into the same building. My heart goes out to his family. Everyone who ever spent a minute with Myron will surely miss him.

Your dad leaves behind a beautiful legacy of faith and family. He and your mom are together again, in the presence of Christ! He will be greatly missed by so many, young and old. The values Myron & Avis held dear continue to shine though all of you. Hugs!

Trudy, Cindy and Camey,
Your father was a wonderful, kind man who always had a smile and an encouraging word for everyone. We were blessed to know him. May God comfort you with the knowledge that Myron is now in heaven and filled with joy and happiness. And probably working on plans to build a popcorn shop!

Cindy, Camey and Trudy, My sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear Father. Myron became very special to my Mother and I as we shared mealtime over the last 3 years. He was a very kind and considerate man. Please know that we share in your loss. We pray that the God of all hope grants you peace at this difficult time. Rita and Laura

Myron....the nicest man I have ever had the pleasure to know. He always had a huge smile and kind word. And popcorn!! Rest in peace, Myron. Thoughts and prayers to the Peterson family.

I worked in St. Paul City Hall for many years. The popcorn store on Wabasha Street, run by Myron and his brother, Morris, was a popular place for many downtown employees. Their product was excellent, but Myron and Morris were wonderful gentlemen. My son was diagnosed with leukemia in 1988 and passed away in May, 1989. Myron and Morris were aware of my son's battle. They completely surprised me and attended my son's visitation in White Bear Lake. I'll never forget their kindness. This is truly a loss for your family and I extend my sympathy. You were blessed to have him for 95 years. You are in my prayers.
