Manteca Bulletin - - Local / State -

SANTA ROSA ( AP) — Au­thor­i­ties say a 70-yearold man ap­par­ently shot and killed him­self amid the re­mains of his home that burned in last month’s North­ern Cal­i­for­nia firestorms.

The Santa Rosa PressDemo­crat re­ports Mon­day that Greg Mly­nar­czyk was a well- known den­tist in Santa Rosa.

The Sonoma County sher­iff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum says Mly­nar­czyk’s wife and an in­surance ad­juster found him dead Satur­day at the house in the hard-hit Foun­tain­grove neigh­bor­hood.

His fam­ily and his of­fice de­clined com­ment.

Mly­nar­czyk was a Ne­vada na­tive who went to col­lege at the Univer­sity of Ore­gon and den­tal school at the Univer­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia.

He was a mem­ber of a group of horse rid­ers called the Sonoma County Trail­blaz­ers. His web­site says he en­joyed the “ca­ma­raderie of this group on the trail ride or at the hog feed.”
