Michael Arthur Byers September 11, 1946 ~ September 16, 2010 God took Michael into His light on Thursday September 16, 2010, at our home in Novato surrounded by his family. After a four year battle with cancer, he was deeply appreciative of the outstanding care from his doctors, including Timothy Murphy, Andrew Ko, James Ostroff, and the Pine Street Clinic. While fighting his disease, Michael stayed very active with his family and friends and always had a smile, a kind word, and a great sense of humor. He enjoyed the outdoors and golfing. He and Jane Scarbrough were committed parents to their four wonderful children. A native of Toronto, Michael played professional hockey with the NHL and WHA, including the Toronto Maple Leafs, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, and Buffalo Sabres. Michael played right wing with the New England Whalers when they won the World Hockey Cup in 1973. A memorial service for Michael will be held on Friday Sept. 24th at 2:00PM at the Episcopal Church of the Nativity, 333 Ellen Drive in San Rafael. In lieu of flowers, donations for the benefit of his children Matthew, Stephen, Scott, and Abbey Byers may be made to the Michael Byers Memorial Fund, 28 Presidio Drive, Novato CA 94949.
