Myron Lasnetski was born Nov. 12, 1925 in Can­by to Andrew and Mary Lasnetski (Shaikoski). He attended Wilno Parochial School then the country school near his home. My­ron was a member of the St. John Cantius Church in Wilno. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus.
Myron married Irene (Skorczewski) on Oct. 10, 1949. To that union they were blessed with six chil­dren. The family lived on the original family farm in rural Lincoln County where Myron farmed until his retirement. Myron also worked at various other jobs, including Swifts, the Ivanhoe Hospital, and Ivanhoe Feed and Seed.
Myron was a hardwork­ing man who loved spend­ing time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Some of his favorite activities were playing horseshoes, base­ball and fishing. He loved watching Minnesota Twins baseball and Minnesota Vi­kings football. These were his two favorite teams. Myron also loved playing softball and spending time in the playhouse with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In his ear­lier days, you could find Myron spending time at the Marble store or play­ing cards with his broth­ers and in-laws. Another favorite of Myron’s was the yearly 4th of July cele­bration at St. John Cantius Church in Wilno.
Myron is survived by his children—Gerry Las­netski of Canby, Nick (Lin­nea) Lasnetski of Mar­shall, Maelene Lasnetski of Marshall, Jeff (Darla) Lasnetski of Willmar, and Patty (Jim) Redlinger of Brandon, South Dakota; 14 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and other relatives.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife Irene Lasnetski, daughter Colleen Przymus, grand­son Nathan Lasnetski, and brothers Ambrose and Leonard Lasnetski.
Blessed be his memory.
