We thank the Lord for Byron's faithful friendship both to our Dad, Irving, and to our whole family. He was an overcomer. And a very practical man. A caring man. A man of faith. We want to bless all of his family now, and to be thankful for Byron's life. From, The Howbert Family.
Thank you, Kathy and Dave , for using your parents address book to contact us. We are so sorry, but rest in the comfort that he is with the Lord. Laverne and I were roommates in 1954 and 1955. What a joy to learn that they met the Lord about the same time I did. Emmy Lou Andrews
Saddened to learn of the death of my good friend and professional colleague. Byron and I shared many experiences over 40 years, professional and otherwise. His Christian walk was an inspiration to me and many others. Intelligence, integrity and a sensitive nature were hallmarks of his life. He will be missed. It was truly a privilege to have shared this life with him.
I met Byron and Laverne in 1967 when they
were on the Young Life board. I was the new
Young Life staff person, and they were so
wonderful to me. Byron was always so graceious - a truly godly man.
Mr. Akers was a wonderful man. I worked for him with Cindi at Pixieland Mini GOlf in the late 70s. He was always so kind to us, and I will be forever grateful that he gave me my first job. God Bless You All.
