Byron Jay Chaon, 52, passed away on Oct. 26, 2017. He was born on Nov. 3, 1964, and grew up in Mendota, Illinois.

After attending college, Byron proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy beginning in 1986. After two tours of duty, he continued to serve as a naval contractor. Byron enjoyed spending time with family and friends and looked forward to an annual "boys" fishing trip.

Byron is survived by his wife of 23 years, Paula; daughters, Morgan and Genevieve; mother, Marilyn; brothers, Jeff and Mike; and sister, Cindy. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Francis.

Family and friends will join a private Celebration of Byron's Life, with full military honors, on Nov. 3.
