Patrick Michael Eaton, aka Myrna

January 20, 1948 — April 11, 2019

Myrna passed April 11, 2019, at age 71, at the Veterans Home in Yountville, California. His ashes were interred at the veteran's cemetery there. Myrna served tens of thousands of San Francisco locals and tourists over many decades as a waiter at Without Reservations on Castro Street and previously at a Polk Street restaurant. With humor and speed, Myrna put up with many late-night revelers who frequented the popular eatery into the wee hours of the morning. He was a humble and regular customer and supported benefits at Powerhouse, the Edge, 440 Castro, and other Castro businesses.

He was a decorated Air Force Vietnam veteran and a member of the Alexander Hamilton Post 448 of the American Legion. His twinkling eyes, generous smile, and friendly conversation will be missed by friends Jeff Scott, Tom Yaussy, Gary Virginia, bartenders, and other friends. A celebration of life will take place at the Edge bar, 4149 18th Street, Saturday, May 18, from 2 to 3 p.m.
