Myron Elmer Tolf

August 14, 1954 — January 23, 2024

Myron Tolf was born August 14, 1954 in Joliet, Illinois. He was the middle of 3 children and was a very strong willed and determined child. In his early childhood years his family made the move to Mesa, Arizona. There he learned about and enjoyed the cowboy way of life. He was involved with FFA throughout High School and when he graduated he was a bull rider in rodeos. During this time he met the love of his life, Louise and soon it was wedding bells instead of cow bells he heard and rodeo life was over. But the cowboy way of life was deeply ingrained in him. 

He was first a husband to his beautiful wife, Lousie also known as Grammie, then he became a dad to two wonderful kids, a daughter, Myra and a son, Newly. He then became a father-in-law to his favorite son-in-law, Travis Boss, but the name he was most proud of was Papa to nine grandchildren: Travis Ryan, Tyler, Taryn, Traycen, Colin, Trysta, Taylor, Jaxon and Roman; six boys and three girls that definitely kept him busy; plus two more soon to be granddaughters- in-law, Sami and Bethany. 

He lived a very full life and will be remembered as hard working, selfless, very generous, kind, caring, loving and respectful. He always finished what he started, had a love for music that his grandkids acquired and loved to learn and share what he learned. He always treated Grammie with kindness and showered her with affection. He had grit, deep values and always did everything 110%. His granddaughters thought he was funny, loved to tell them jokes and always had a life lesson in all we did together. Myron wasn't afraid to try anything, he had a wealth of knowledge and he created amazing things with his hands. He was an entrepreneur of many trades, but his most favorite was operating his blade. He was an all-around great guy and we are all so blessed to have known him and thankful for the memories made with him.

Myron passed away Tuesday January 23, 2024, peacefully in his home. He is survived by his wife, children, all nine grandkids and his beloved blue heeler Sammie. 

A graveside service will be held Thursday, February 1, 2024 at 2:30 p.m. at Dennehotso Community Cemetery, Dennehotso, Arizona. He will be laid to rest with his father and mother-in-law, John & Ramona Crank and brother-in-law, Dan Crank.
