More about him at this site (http://personal.inet.fi/koti/vaino.myllyrinne/), written by his nephew.

Interestingly his mother was born in Paltamo, just like Daniel Cajanus (http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Cajanus). Big Louie Moilanen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Moilanen) was born in neighboring Puolanka.
