Myroslav was born to Maria and Ivan on July 13, 1922, in Lysa, Ukraine. He was taken from Lysa after 1941 by the occupying German Army and forced into slave labor in Germany. After the war, he immigrated from Germany to the United States where in New York City he met his wife, Janina. He graduated from the University of Alabama in 1954 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. From 1966 to his passing, he made his home in Laurel, Maryland where he and Janina, married for 55 years, raised six children in the full traditions of the Ukrainian homeland from which they were driven away by the war. Myroslav was very active in the musical community singing with the Columbia Choral Society, the Laurel Oratorio Society, the Ukrainian National Choir of Baltimore and Washington, as well as cantoring at St. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore, Maryland, and Holy Trinity Particular Ukrainian Catholic Church in Silver Spring, Maryland. Myroslav arranged music for the bandura and actively involved his children in musical performance, both vocal and instrumental, throughout the years. Myroslav was an honest and hardworking man, who loved gardening, photography and carpentry. Myroslav is survived by his wife, Janina (nee Wojtowicz) of Laurel, Maryland; his sons, Roman Hnatyshyn of Baltimore, Zenon Hnatyshyn of Laurel, Taras Hnatyshyn of Laurel; his daughters, Marta Hnatyshyn of Laurel, Irma Lyszyk and her husband, Andriy, of Laurel; Mira Hudson and her husband, Neff, of San Antonio, and two granddaughters, Nina Hudson and Lila Hudson.
