John Webster Myrick, 94 passed away peacefully at home with his devoted wife, Juanita, of 73 years and their number five son Kevin, on November 15th, 2014.
He is also survived by four grandchildren.
John was a civil servant for the Corps of Engineers for 20 years and survived five years in the jungles of New Guinea. He also worked for Metro in the Seattle area for more than 20 years.
John and Nita moved to our Hill Top in 1981 and owned and operated a Hunting and Fishing Camp, where he tended the aerator at the Sidley Lake for many years. John loved to garden and grew some of the most beautiful gladiolas and the biggest tomatoes you
have ever seen. You were a lucky person if you received a basket from one of his gardens.
Whenever John started a project he finished it and, just recently he finished his wood piles for this year and next. That is 11 cords of wood.
Oh! dear John, we will miss you.
A Celebration of Life will be held for John Webster Myrick on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m. at the Grange Hall in Molson. Beverages and desserts will be available.
Bergh Funeral Service of Oroville is in charge of arrangements.
