  • I loved having Mr.Myser as my Science teacher at Mt. Vernon High School!! He always gave you the attention you needed to get through a project!! Sympathy to the Family. He was a Gem!!! Thank you Mr Myser for your passion of Science and Life!! Gloria Payne

  • Mr. Myser was my boss for a while at Mount Vernon High School. So sorry to hear of his passing. Good man and friend.

  • Condolences to the Myser family. I remember Mr. Myser from Big Walnut High School and always looked forward to being in his classes. We always felt we could ask the questions needed to understand the material. He was very patient with us! He also was kind enough to come to our Reunions. A special man and indeed a role model.

  • Condolences to the family of Mr Myser. He was one of my favorites. His class was always interesting as he was so knowledgeable. If I am correct my 3 older siblings we also fortunate to have him as a teacher. Sending prayers of comfort your way.

  • I was lucky enough to not only have Mr. Myser as a Chemistry teacher at Mount Vernon High School in 1971, but years later to have taught with him at the old Mount Vernon Middle School. He had a wonderful sense of humor which came in handy when we were given some challenging students one year. He was always kind, patient and a true gentleman. My condolences to his entire family.

  • Tom lead by example. In my years, I have learned to see the examples of men I would seek to emulate. As people mature, I have observed that we only need a couple of good mentors to guide us. It is said that “Imitation is the strongest form of flattery” . One would need only to watch Tom, see how he conducted himself, how he carried himself, and listen to his reasoning. Tom was my chemistry teacher and a fellow Trustee at Consolidated Cooperative and valued friend. He stood for good. He left a lot of good along his way him. Proud of him.
    All the Best to Tom’s Family,

  • Tom was a great member of the Consolidated Electric Co-op board of directors and I thoroughly enjoyed working for him. Michell and I will keep Mary and family in our thoughts and prayers. Brian Newton

  • I’ve known Tom since 1948. He and my husband were roommates in college and Tom was best man at our wedding, then we stood up with him and Mary at their wedding. We’ve kept in touch all these years. I’m so sorry to hear of his death, but thankful he is whole in body now. My sympathy and prayers to the family.

  • So many good memories of this man I send my condolences to the entire family. He was a friend and a teacher and I enjoyed all my experiences with him. I met him in the 7th grade while doing a science fair project and had his class 3 different years in high school. As a high school senior he took several of us on a trip to Chicago to the science museums. It was a very memorable experience, he kept us entertained as we traveled telling us stories and jokes.

  • I was so sorry to hear about Tom. I knew him when I was growing up and his wonderful family. I also work at Bennington Glen and reconnected with him and Mary. He also went to my church. He was the nicest person.




  • I remember Tom Myser fondly. I too was a student at Big Walnut in the 60″s Chemistry was not my favorite subject but Mr Myser always tried to make easy for the less inclined to science. I saw the notice In the Sunbury News. I did not realize he was still in this area. He was a fine teacher . You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Sincerely, Bette Hoke Roberts, Class of 62 BWHS
