From the 1944 Lucky Bag:


Myron was lost on September 17, 1946 when his torpedo plane collided with another over the Mediterranean Sea. A radioman — it's not clear which plane he was aboard — was also lost. The aircraft were flying from USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CV 42). He was survived by his parents.

He has a memory marker in Tunis, Tunisia.

Prior to the Naval Academy he attended the University of California at Los Angeles.
