John Bernard Byrne, 82, of Fayetteville, PA died peacefully at his home on Christmas Day surrounded by his loving family. Born January 28, 1935 in Baltimore, he was the son of the late John Bernard and Mary Alice (Lee) Byrne, Sr. He was the devoted husband of Sara (Keating) Byrne, to whom he was married for nearly 55 years.
