I had the pleasure of working with Myrl at the North Manchester Post Office and was their mail lady when they lived on Sylers Lane.  When I first started at the P.O. there was only one other lady working there, and with all those guys, Myrl watched over me.  We enjoyed having him at the Hardware, he was always so friendly and helpful, he will be missed.  You have our deepest sympathy Joyce and family.

I have wonderful memories of fishing with Myrl in Florida during my youth. I went down to Nakomis Beach with the Benton family on a few occasions, and would get to spend many hours being tutored by Myrl in the finer points of fishing the Florida causeways.  A very good and kind hearted man.  My sympathies.
