I worked with Mike for almost 2 years as his trainer and tennis coach. Mike allowed me to work on his body with new methods of development and training. It saddened me to find out he passed. I know it´s 5 years ago but we had a connection and I found this after looking him up. I miss you Mike!

I met Myron when I was a freshman at Columbia College. My father just passed away and I was a commuter. It was difficult time for me as I did not connect with many people at Columbia. Myron befriended me and initially was the only person there for me during this difficult time. I will always remember his kindness and caring.

I just learned of Myron's passing. My first thought was meeting him in September 1957 playing half court hoops during freshmen week at Columbia. He loved playing. Then I remembered his brainpower, simpatico and social consciousness. I liked him very much. It is sad that he cannot keep helping others.

One of the joys of the past 10 years was getting to know Mike through our bi- or tri-monthly lunches, courtesy of Jim Edmondson. He had wide-ranging interests, still followed sports, and was a passionate fan of his daughters and grandchildren. Moreover, he was decent, kind, and very funny! I shall miss him and send my very deepest condolences.

Wonderful and intelligent man. He and Mary were our weekly dining companions during the summer up here in Northern Michigan for years. We will miss his indominable spirit.

Working with Mike many years ago and knowing Mike and Mary was one of the signicant joys and inspirations of my life. Mike embraced the action and passion of his time. He made a difference. He stood up for his ideals. He acted to improve the life of others. He sent forth many ripples of hope. He helped sweep down the mighty walls of oppression and resistance.
