January 23, 1957 ~ November 26, 2012
Myron Blaine Struble, age 55, died at home on Monday, November 26, 2012. He was born at St. Luke’s Hospital in Wellington, Kansas during a blizzard on January 23, 1957. He graduated from Chaparral High School in 1975. The day after graduation he stayed with his grandparents in Junction City and apprenticed under a master carpet installer at Johnson Furniture Store. The relatives wanted him to stay but the agreement was, he would return to Struble Furniture in Harper, Kansas. The store building was built on to as the business grew. The basement was the families living area. The ground was lower at the back of the lot. He wheelbarroed this large mound of dirt for several months to make the lot level. This was done after working for the business all day. Myron also put sheet rock up and did most of the finishing of the basement. Several trips to foreign countries were won due to the amount of carpet the store sold. He accompanied his mother and father on three trips to Mexico and several Scandinavian countries. The store was sold in August 1991 and Myron and his parents moved to Branson, Missouri.
The Strubles attended the Community Bible Church in Harper, Kansas and Myron and his father accepted the Lord and were baptized there.
Myron worked for many years at Stoneridge Carpets in Branson West, Missouri. He wanted to do his best for each customer and worked many holidays, weekends and sometimes late into the night to get the job done to the customers satisfaction and his. He also worked for Bill Reed in Springfield, Missouri, putting floor coverings in offices, apartments and reidences. Myron’s work ethic and desire to do the best possible job were extremely important to him. He felt his word was his bond. His van traveled lots of miles and he kept good equipment.
Since 1995, he spent his off hours building a beautiful rock wall. It was all done by hand and includes a waterfall. The wall is 9 feet tall in some places. He brought in truck loads of gravel, dirt, rocks and bought hundreds of bags of quickrete. Myron took lots of dirt and rock from under the house. Only God taking him Home would he have ever stopped on the wall.
Myron liked being on the computer viewing stocks and current events. He was a talented musician like his father and some of the Strubles. He played drums (really good at Wipeout), and 6 string harmony and “hotlicks” on the guitar. Myron played what the young people liked back in the 90’s and the amplifier he had really let us older people hear it. He stopped playing around the time his father died. Myron moved back home from Springfield, Missouri to be with his mother.
Suvivors include his mother, Janice Struble, brother William John Struble and wife MaLea of Haper, Kansas, his sister Valerie and husband Bruce Olivier ofHarper, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Harold and Alvina Struble, maternal grandparents Delbert and Lillian Johnson and his father, William Jack Struble.
A memorial service will be held 2:00 p.m. Sunday, December 9, 2012 at the Church of God in Caldwell, Kansas. Inurnment at the Corzine Cemetery will be held at a later date.
A memorial has been established in his memory with the Corzine Cemetery, Corbin, Kansas. Memorials may be left at the Schaeffer Mortuary, 6 N. Main Caldwell, Kansas.

Much too late, I received this tragic news. I spent a Highschool year in 88/89 with the Struble familiy in Harper, KS.
Myron sometimes would take me along on his weekend trips laying carpets and delivering furniture. I will never forget the times we hung out and talked about music.
Although I really have lost touch to the family decades ago, my feelings are still with the family especilally after hearing this.

I wanted to see you again and show you my son... I never told you this because I was embarassed but I love you, my brother, Myron. And I love you, my host Mother. I miss Myron and my host Father. Condolenes....
