Myrrl Santy, 77, of Redondo Beach, passed away on March 24, 2020, in Little Company of Mary Hospital as a result of contracting the Covid-19 virus. Myrrl was born January 12, 1943, in Los Angeles to Orlando and Merna Santy. He grew up in Manhattan Beach and attended Aviation High School from 1957-1960 where he met his wife Patricia as a junior. They were married in 1962. With a wife, four children, and a full-time job, he graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Chemical Engineering in 1972. He worked at TRW for 40 years and was an expert in space related testing and manufacturing processes. Myrrl was a family man. He cared deeply about the welfare and happiness of his children and grandchildren and spent time with them whenever possible. Myrrl was a model husband and father who was always ready to open his house, to visit those having a challenge, to give his friends a ride when needed, and was loved by many in the community. Myrrl is survived by his wife Patricia, his four children Michael, Patrick, Joseph and Lisa, their wives, his six grandchildren, and his sister Elaine. Myrrl’s celebration of life will be held at a later date at American Martyrs Catholic Church.

  1. Matthew 7:16: “You will know them by their fruits”. We only met “Mr. Santy” a few times. His wife, Patti, worked with us at the Saint Katherine Greek Festival, and he would sometimes come and patiently in our booth for her shift to end. Of course, Patti was there to support her son, Patrick, his wife Maria, and their beloved grand-daughters, Madeline and Eva. We love this family, your fruits. You did well, Myrrl. Thank you and RIP.

  2. My deepest sympathy with the passing of Myrrl Santy.
    I was with him in the exercise class with Ralph. Always talked to him, and asking how Pat was doing when she had surgery.

  3. With heartfelt sympathy, my family is keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers. I was saddened to hear my kindhearted Uncle passed away. As a child, I always enjoyed visiting with my Aunt Patti and Uncle Myrrl.
