His family lived in Nebraska, Oregon, California, and Idaho. He lived most of his life in Twin Falls, Idaho. After leaving the military, Myron was visiting his friend, Tom Smith, when Tom’s little sister walked into the room. Myron said the minute he saw Sandy, he knew he had to get to know her better. Myron married Sandra (Sandy) Smith on February 20, 1959, in Twin Falls, Idaho {Myron was 24 years old and Sandra was 17 years old}. Myron was a life-taught man, not a school-taught man {he finished school in the eighth grade}. He was well-versed in guns, archery and all outdoor activities, i.e., softball, hunting, fishing, mountain survival/fun. He would often leave for an entire day to go scout out the mountain area where he drew his hunting permit. His favored indoor activities were watching any and all sporting events on the television, playing cards, bowling, and playing pool. Myron was a supporter/member of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation; Snake River Elks Fraternal Organization; Ducks Unlimited; and National Wild Turkey Federation. Myron worked his adult life at Falls Brand Independent Meat Company, Twin Falls, Idaho. He started out his meat company career in the plant on the kill floor, promoted to butcher and when he retired, 44 years later, he was the supervisor of shipping and distribution. Myron was a member of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters and Butcher Workmen of North America. Myron served our country and when he was honorably discharged from active duty in the Army of the United States, he was a Specialist-3.

Myron was preceded in death by his wife, Sandra Schroeder; parents, Hugo and Edna Schroeder; sister, Judy Burrill; sister, Iva Pryor (husband Clifford Raymond); brother, Walter Schroeder; and grandson, Cody Parton.
