Born in Olyphant, he was the son of the late Metro and Anna Sucheniak Krenitsky. He attended Olyphant High School and graduated from Johnson School of Technology. He proudly served in the United States Army in England during the Korean Conflict.
Before retirement, he was employed by Sardoni Construction. He was a 60-year member of United Brotherhood of Carpenters & Joiners of America Local Union 445 and was a lifelong member of SS. Cyril & Methodius Ukrainian Catholic Church in Olyphant.
Myron was a skilled carpenter and master artisan of fine woodworking, and his meticulous works became treasured gifts for his family. He loved the outdoors and was a passionate fly fisherman and hunter, and he belonged to Greystone Hunting Club in Pike County for more than 60 years. He took great joy in gardening and growing fruit trees. He served as a scout leader and then scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 68 of Peckville for 15 years. Myron was proud of his Carpatho-Rusyn heritage and loved to be surrounded by his family to celebrate holiday traditions and family events. His strength, love, and guidance were the foundation for his family and will be missed more than words can express.
Also surviving are sons, Daniel and wife, Christy, Fillmore, Calif.; Joseph and wife, Debbie; and grandson, Stephen, Charlottesville, Va.; Paul and wife, Veronique, San Francisco, Calif.; sister, Helen Brojack; brother, William Krenitsky; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
