Dear LaVerne and Family: I pray that God will give you confort in this time of great loss. Those of us left here suffer the pain of his leaving but Byron is no longer in pain. He is celebrating with Jesus and looking forward to the day that we will join him. Byron was not only my mentor but was (and still is) my guide in the practice of law. In my dealings with every client over my 32 years of practice, I have always asked myself: "How would Byron handle this issue." Byron was a great attorney, but more importantly, he was a wonderful man and the best friend anyone could ever have. God bless you and your entire family.

I first met Byron in 1982 while working for his parents at the Ghost Town Museum. I was one of 3 brothers who worked for the Akers. He was certainly one of the kindest persons I've known and it saddens me at the loss. My warmest thoughts and prayers for the family.

Dear LaVerne, Deb, Cindi, Kathy, and family,
My heart goes out to each of you at this time. Byron, being a college buddy and faithful friend of our father, was like a second father to me in many ways. He was, indeed, a gentleman. I will always think of him as a man of true greatness who, as a lover and follower of Jesus Christ often sacrificed his own interests for the good of others. It seems whenever we met he must have aimed, first, to make me smile--and also, invariably, to share something of significance which would challenge me, make me think, remind me of God's character, or somehow make me a better person. Thank you, Byron, for faithfully building us all up in love! We love you!!!--and miss you dearly.

To the Family of Mr. Akers . . . I met Mr. Akers during the time I worked at Holland and Hart. The kind words in this obiturary are so true, about how kind and gentle he was. He always seemed to have a smile and a pleasant conversation ready to go. He has touched many lives and will be sadly missed!
