Byron, Allen Sanford  
Byron, Allen Sanford Dec. 29, 1927 - Apr. 11, 2015 Allen Byron, entrepreneur, teacher, poet, world wanderer, dreamer of big ideas, optimist, egg cream enthusiast, sports fan and political philosopher, died April 11, 2015. He leaves behind his wife, Nerie Ramos Byron; his daughter, Su Byron; his sister, Sandra Oppenheimer; and his brother-in-law, Martin Arons. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Leila Byron; and his son, Jon Byron. Allen was born in Manhattan, NY, and attended Fordham University. In his 20s, he traveled to Cuba, a country and culture he kept close to his heart. Allen later explored the world's exotic locales with his family. They lived in Israel for a year, where Allen was famous for his polyglot patois of English, Spanish and Hebrew. When he wasn't traveling, Allen poured his energies into creating and coaching emerging businesses. For many years, he held a leadership position with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In the 1980s, Allen moved to Puerto Rico, where he formed a chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business. He and Nerie eventually moved to Valencia, Spain, where he ran a consultation firm for small businesses and taught English. They traversed Europe, sending back colorful tales and photos of their many happy adventures. Allen spent his later years writing poetry and volunteering as a teacher and business coach. He was especially proud of a book that elementary students created for him, illustrating 20 of his poems with their drawings. Wherever Allen is now, we wish him bliss, poetry, and unlimited egg creams.

Her cousin Andrew said it best - 'Hannah had a sense of humor, strong, independent streak, and quick mischievous smile. I remember clearly the way Hannah could shake me- sometimes literally - out of a stupor with her creativity and contagious laughter, and that Cheshire cat grin of hers'. She is survived by her parents and two sisters; Gina Catalano Holbrook, and Amelia Catalano. She is also survived by her nephew Ryan Catalano Holbrook. For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made to either Sarasota Memorial Hospital or Tidewell Hospice in Sarasota, Florida. There will be no calling hours.
