My deepest condolences on Myron's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in the family. Myron was a pillar of the community and served his country in the war and his province and Sault Ste. Marie as a distinguished member of the judiciary. Myron was always fair and straight up with lawyers, defendants nd the public who appeared before him in the courts of Algoma district. I and members of the Crown Attorney's office will miss Myron.

My condolences and prayers to the Hewitt family. I have fond memories of Myron. He was respectful and professional-even at 3 am when we would show up for a signature for a warrant. God bless.

My condolences and thoughts to the family. Myron was a true gentleman even when we woke him at all hours seeking search warrants and signatures. He was very well respected by officers and a true credit to his profession.
