Myron was born on the family farm in the Town of Corning, Wisconsin to Paul and Constance Duginski. He entered the army in 1951 and proudly served on the engineering team that helped rebuild Germany after World War II. He married Carole Jeanne Wagner on September 7, 1957. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He loved his family dearly. He was a generous man who also had a wonderful ‘dry” sense of humor. Most importantly, Myron was a compassionate man who took great care of his wife during her final years happily traveling the United States together.
Myron worked as an appraiser for the State of Wisconsin. He retired in 1988, but retirement did not last long as he opened his own appraisal business and operated it for approximately 10 years. He was an accomplished craftsman, builder, woodcarver, and gardener. He was a faithful Catholic who served his church through his volunteerism and being an active member of the Knights of Columbus.
