Life Well Lived A life well lived is a precious gift
Of hope and strength and grace,
From someone who has made our world
A brighter, better place.
It’s filled with moments, sweet and sad
With smiles and sometimes tears,
With friendships formed and good times shared
And laughter through the years.
A life well lived is a legacy
Of joy and pride and pleasure,
A living, lasting memory
Our grateful hearts will treasure
It is with a heavy heart & great sadness we announce the passing of Myron Mishio the evening of June 6 2020.
Born March 15th 1944 to Demetro & Sophie Mishio of Ranfurly Alberta, Myron was the youngest of five siblings - Mary, Eva, Jennie & Bill.
Growing up in Alberta, Myron fell in love and married Marscha 55 years ago, and were blessed with two daughters, Marlene and Cheryl. Myron and Marscha as a young couple relocated the family to Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island in 1972 when Myron accepted a position in the Nanaimo Post Office facility.
Myron loved his sport, and over the years remained active in Curling, Slo-Pitch, Golf, and Lawn Bowls. He excelled in all sports he played, striving to play to his best ability. He spent 10 years volunteering his time coaching his daughter's softball teams. An avid sports fan, Myron followed many sports, but had a deep passion for Ice Hockey and remained a loyal supporter of the Ottawa Senators.
Myron was survived by a family that now spans the globe, that started with roots he planted within Nanaimo. The eldest daughter Marlene provided Myron and Marscha with two granddaughters, Jenessa and Sarah, while Cheryl later added two grandsons Braedyn and Kyle. Myrons family has the Barfoots, Urbans and Georgicas expanding from Vancouver Island to Australia and New Zealand.
Myron always smiling, and so easy to get along with, was very close to many people that are part of this family, and touched the hearts of Kevin Barfoot, Mike Urban, Tyus Barfoot, Daniel Moore, Colin David, Ed Georgica and family, as well as neighbours’ Dave and Lynn McNaught.
Myron's pride & joy were his four grandchildren Jenessa, Sarah, Braedyn & Kyle - who he enjoyed spending time with as they grew up & lived in places such as Ottawa, Nanaimo, Christchurch New Zealand & Sydney Australia.
Myron also leaves many happy memories with a long list of anyone who had the pleasure to know him through sport, the Nanaimo Legion, Lawn Bowls in Australia, and Nanaimo, or just by chance at a local venue, or the shops.
Myron always wore a smile on his face, enjoyed a game of cards and catching up over a cold beer. His door was always open to family & friends and social gatherings at Myron & Marscha's home were always memorable with lots of food, drinks & laughter.
He will be sadly missed by all who knew him - thankfully we also have many great memories to reflect back upon which will leave our hearts smiling.
