Kristie and Myron Thomas

Myron describes seeing Kristie for the first time as a disc jockey during the disco era, and thinking that she was so beautiful that she “was out of my league.’’ But their shared love for the popular dances of the mid-1970s soon brought them together again. The Bradenton couple married three months later, and today enjoy a mutual affection for the beaches, arts and culture of West Central Florida after almost 30 years of rarely being apart.
