Myron Pirozek of Orlando, Fla., formerly of Dobbs Ferry, died peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Monday, March 23, at age 73.
Myron was born May 6, 1946, at an American refugee camp in Flensburg, Germany, the son of Anton and Olga. He immigrated to Brooklyn in 1952. He joined the Marines Corps in 1966, served two tours in Vietnam, and received a Bronze Star for his bravery.
Myron then worked for Exxon Mobil for 38 years, retiring in 2011 to Deposit, N.Y. He soon became a snowbird, wintering in Orlando before making it his home in 2019. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, fly tying, gardening, golfing, but most of all making memories around a campfire with his family.
Myron wed Mary Ann Pecylak on Oct. 7, 1972, who survives. He is also survived by his son Nicholas Pirozek, daughters Natalka (Christopher) Citro and Christina (Jeffrey) Pirozek, brother Roman Pirozek, mother-in-law Ksenia Pecylak, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held in New York at a future date. Send donations in Myron’s memory to the Wounded Warrior Project.
