A few years ago, a collection of combat airman from the Vietnam "conflict" gathered in Bristol to reminisce and fellowship. Among the activities planned by Paul Spangler was a visit to Bristol Speedway for a day of racing courtesy of Jeff. We enjoyed that day and the generous hospitality of Jeff's skybox and service. Jeff acknowledged our presence and honored our service with recognition at the track. Hospitality marks one measure of a good person's character. Jeff clearly had that one well set and, by comments here, he had a full measure of other highly admirable character traits. Thanks again, Jeff, and deepest condolences to those who loved and knew him and enjoyed his vigorous living. If there's not been any rubber burning or fuel stinging nostrils in heaven during the joy of great motor racing, I'm betting a new project is freshly under way. God bless Jeff and all who grieve the ending of a very well lived life.

Such a wonderful person with many memories of the whole family and BMS family. I had dealt with Jeff many times when I did Non-Profitt fundraisers for the Crumley House for the Traumatic Brain Injured. And he always gave from his heart. A truley dedicated man to this area. And his wife just follows in his footsteps. God Bless to all of you and the BMS employees for the loss of a most wonderful boss and friend. Jeff, you will be greatly missed.

What can I say but how much we are all going to miss Jeff. We've been through it ourselves and you all were there to support us so many years ago. I remember many good times between the two families at Rockingham, the Preview, and many others up in WS. Please know my thoughts are with you all. Always,

I met Jeff back in the RJR days he was a unique person, he would always come in the tower at the races and have a smile on his face.He never had a harsh word to say to anyone. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as well as the racing family.

just a race fan that held season tickets to Bristol for 8 years. The last race that I attended was Jeff's last race at Bristol- I LOVED his opening speaches before the races! I looked forward to them....he was BRISTOL! As much as the high banks, the beating and banging, the sparks on a Saturday night; Jeff Byrd personified Bristol and it will NEVER be the same again. RIP Friend!
