Folke Alarik Wilhelm Myrin II, known to his friends and family as Bill or Willy, died peacefully on July 30th after a long illness.

Willy was born in Philadelphia to Lars and Helen Myrin in 1941 and spent summers growing up in Little Compton.

After college, Willy moved to New York City to work on Wall Street at Bache & Co. where he met and married his wife Janet Olsen. Willy loved everything about Manhattan but moved to Little Compton full time to raise their children Alarik and Arden. Willy is survived by his wife, two children, their spouses and his grandson Zachary, as well as his sisters Elin and Beth. He is predeceased by his siblings Cuthbert and Sally.

Willy held a Master's Degree in accounting from the University of Rhode Island and was a CPA/PFS. He worked as an accountant until his retirement.

Willy loved nothing more than a day floating in the ocean and body-surfing at Warren's Point Beach. A convertible lover, Willy often put the top down on his car and headed off to the movies with the radio playing and a soda in his hand. More than anything Willy believed "to thine own self be true".

Burial will be private.
