HERE WE GO STEELERS! HERE WE GO! The final quarter has arrived and the last play has ended and Wayne Thomas Myrga has won his final victory by entering the gates of heaven and being embraced by his Lord.

 He was a Physical Education teacher at Coal Rice Elementary School in Landover, MD. He devoted 24 years working with students with disabilities. He was also involved with the Special Olympics in many ways.

Wayne was a kind, caring, fun loving man who enjoyed being a fireman with the Newell Volunteer Firemen, member of the Santa Barbara Club, and a member of the NEA Teacher’s Group. He enjoyed golfing, coaching in his area of many sports and teams (youth), and having fun basically. His one and only favorite item he looked forward to every year was the Steeler home games he attended with his “football buddy” and that was his Aunt Marcy. He was a die hard Steelers fan. His blood was black and gold!
