We met Byron when my husband Ron joined the law firm as a very young and inexperienced attorney. No one could have had better mentors than Byron with his kindness, gentle sense of humor, and view of the law profession as "ministery" and his dear friend Jack Foutch who taught fairness & toughness. LaVerne was equally wonderful to me. Byron's absence will be felt by so many. There wasn't a person he interacted with that didn't feel his warm humanity.
I met you while I was working at Ghost Town Museum at my first summer job. Ghost Town always made me feel like I was part of a family that could only be complete with an amazing grandfather. I will miss sneaking you popcorn.
My heart goes out to your family.
Dear Byron, I met you in 2004 when I started working at Ghost Town Museum. You would come in & check on us when Dave was out of town. Sometimes you would just come in to say hi & get some popcorn. You were always so kind & always had something funny to say.
I remember going to Breakfast with Carol at Bon Tons & you would be there with your gentlemen friends. You would always come to our table to say Hi.
When I started working at Penrose Hospital you & Lavern would come in to eat in the cafeteria & would look for me there just to ask me how I was doing. You would always tell me if I ever needed anything to be sure to go to you for help.
I will always remember your smiling face, kind words & you calling me Marliss.
Though I will miss you I am happy knowing you are pain free and at peace now.
You Have made this world a brighter place with your presence and I thank you for that. Love You
I am deeply saddened at the loss of such a wonderful man. Byron meant so very much to a lot of people and I will remember him forever. Byron, you are loved so very much.
Bill and I met Byron through our three boys working for him at Ghost Town. What a wonderful man and boss to the boys. So many happy memories they have.
He was so easy to talk to and always had such a big smile.
LaVerne, our Deepest Sympathy to you and your family at this very hard time. Bill and Doris Cox (Colo Spgs Co)
