Mr. Lybrand retired after 19 years as a roofer at Enterprise Roofing in Dayton, Ohio, and retired as president of Union Local #75. He moved back to Springdale, SC, after his retirement. He grew up in Batesburg and he attended B-L High School where he played baseball and football and was the vice president of his senior class. He served in the Navy and was honorably discharged from 1949-1950. He served as Scout Master for Troop #28 in Batesburg for 5 years and was scout executive for Fairfield and Kershaw districts. He coached the Red Sox Little League team. He belonged to Masons-Shriners 32nd Lodge 364 in Cayce from 1966-1971. After retirement he was all about his family. He was a loving husband, son, brother, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He loved fishing, camping, traveling, and just hanging out with the children. There was always a houseful of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He had a lot of health problems from his heart and arthritis but you would never know it. He could be in the worst kind of pain but if anyone asked how he was doing he would always answer "Wonderful!" The day before he died the hospice pastor asked before a family prayer, what he wanted to pray for and his answer was to thank God for a wonderful life! Mr. Lybrand was born in Monetta, SC, son of the late Delmas Lybrand, Sr and Margaret Rushton Lybrand. Surviving are his loving wife of 42 years, Sandra Workman Lybrand; sons, David M. Lybrand, Jr; Ernest A. Lybrand; Brian M. Lybrand, Sr; daughters, Ginger C. Harmon; Constance E. Lybrand; Judith A. Lybrand; sister, Bobbie McLaurin; sister-in-law, Diane Lybrand; brother, Jimmy M.
