Myron Scott McKitrick
On Tuesday, June 11, 2013, Myron died peacefully at his Manassas, Virginia home. Myron Scott McKitrick was born in Richland Center, WI on January 22, 1921. He met his wife, Jean Estella Tornow, in Madison, WI toward the end of World War II when he was home on leave. After a whirlwind courtship, the two were married shortly after the end of the war. Jean E. McKitrick preceded Myron in death in 2003. Myron served in WWII as a member of the signal corps in the Army Air Force in North Africa and was later transferred to be a Chaplain's assistant while in Italy. He continued on this path of service after the war by entering the religious seminary to become an ordained minister in the Disciples of Christ and, later in life, received his second ordination with the United Church of Christ. A lover of music, he was an accomplished pianist/organist and established and directed several local music chorales in his life, including various church choirs for different congregations. Myron believed in giving back to the local community and shared his love of music by giving free piano/voice lessons to both children and adults. Bit by the antique bug, he and Jean were avid collectors and operated an antique shop in Connecticut for several years. He is survived by his five children, Camile of Sandpoint, ID, Jeffrey of Leesburg, VA, Bryan of Sandpoint, ID, Marshal of Sacramento, CA and Bradley of Ellicott City, MD. Also surviving are seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. No visitation or viewing will be held. A memorial service will be held at the Manassas Presbyterian Church in Manassas, VA on Wednesday, June 19 at noon. Service will be performed by Rev. Dr. Skip Ferguson followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Arthritis Foundation.
