He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Patricia (Pam); three children, Susan Laman, Amy (Stacy) Carda and Steven Laman; and his four granddaughters, Jenny Carda, Becky Carda, Christy Carda and Sarah Carda. Preceding him in death were his parents, Ferrill and Mabel Laman; brother, Norman Laman; in-laws, Oliver “Mac” and Dorothy McKillop; and brother-in-law, Donald McKillop, M.D. Muryl was born in Topeka, Kan. on January 7, 1932. He graduated from high school in Concordia, Kan. in 1949. He attended the University of Kansas for his undergraduate and medical degrees. He received a degree in Biophysics in 1954, and his medical degree (M.D.) in 1958. After medical school, he and Pam married on June 21, 1958, in Prairie Village, Kan. Muryl did his internship at Wesley Hospital in Wichita, Kan. He had been in ROTC during school and entered the U.S. Air Force in 1959. After completing flight surgeon training in San Antonio, Texas he and Pam moved to Montgomery, Ala. They moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 1962; Muryl continued his medical training at the Cleveland Clinic where he completed a residency in Internal Medicine and a fellowship in Cardiology. After his training was completed the family moved to Wiesbaden-Hesse, West Germany where Muryl was stationed at the USAF Hospital. He completed his military service in 1970 at Andrews Air Force Base attaining the rank of Major. Following his military service as a physician, Muryl went into private practice at the Pueblo Clinic. He joined the Southern Colorado Clinic shortly after arriving in Pueblo. His medical practice continued with the Southern Colorado Clinic until his retirement. During his career he held numerous leadership positions at Southern Colorado Clinic, Parkview Hospital, St. Mary Corwin Hospital, the Pueblo Medical Society and the Colorado Medical Society. His greatest joy as a physician was getting to know the people for whom he cared and learning about their families, achievements and lives. After his retirement, he and Pam traveled extensively. They have been to all 50 states and all seven continents. They especially enjoyed their travels to Antarctica and several transatlantic crossings on the QE2. According to Muryl’s wishes there will be private family services.
