Condolences to Professor Byrne's Family.

With heavy heart I say Good Bye to my dear Professor Dr. Byrne. I am at a loss for words to hear this sudden departure. As a graduate student at UBC, I always found him to be a conscientious man who was the embodiment of integrity, knowledge, and conviction. In particular, I applaud his commitment for educating students with everything one knew.

I pray that God grant the gift of fortitude and valor to the family to overcome the tribulation and despair brought on by this loss. I wish a speedy return to normalcy. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Dear Jane,
I was so sorry to hear that Peter had passed on and it brought up so many memories . Eurwen and my arrival in Vancouver August 1961 with a sailing dinghy on a trailer all the way from Toronto and how Peter arranged for it to be accommodated at Kitsilano Yacht Club. That first skiing Christmas at Todd Mountain and how Peter, and was it Dave, became lost on the mountain and missed the turkey dinner that we had cooked. That blow out Southern Straits yacht race when Peter and I were watch skippers of Alvin Narod's yacht Sunbird.

May Peter sail on in peace and deepest consolations to you.

Sorry to hear about the loss to you and your family, Jane. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Peter and yourself were a very good team.

You may remember this incident at a Kitsilano Invitational regatta.

Peter was taken down the KYC dock to be thrown off the end of the pier head first into English Bay for winning too many races.

Peter yelled, "I can't swim". "Unbelievable Peter, you have got to be kidding".

"Is that right". Peter Hyslop said "yes".

Someone ran back to the clubhouse for a lifejacket. It was a long drop, so Peter was lowered into the water, from the boat hoist - much safer, being a non swimmer.

"No one can win a race in a fiberglass Enterprise", general thought over 7 years at KYC. Peter and youself proved everyone wrong by winning the world championship event with 72 boats on the start line.

Amazing talent and skill!

It is with utmost sadness I found out the passing away of Dr.Peter Byrne. We had close aquintance when we were jointly authoring the landmark paper on "the effect of confining stress on earthquake liquefaction" that was published in Canadian Geotechnical Journal in 1994. We had many deep technical discussions during its preparation and they were pleasant and memorable. We will miss him. May his soul rest in peace. V.S.Pillai
