Being good friends with his son Tom , I've Byron for a long time. When I was a kid and needed work he always had a job for me at The Run, I was always thankful for that. It was fall baseball 93/94 ish. I for some reason brought a BB gun to practice !! It caused all kinds of chaos and hearing him tell that story always had me in tears !!!

My wife and I are so very sorry for your Loss. We are unable to pay our respects, as we will be out of town. I have so many memories of growing up on Marion Hill, and playing ball with Byron. His presence in New Brighton will be greatly missed.
