Very sorry to hear of his passing. Byron was a dear friend to my parents, Bob and Beth Stapleton. They were students, together, at Baylor, and Byron and Dad were WW2 veterans. He loved telling that he introduced Mom and Dad to each other. Oh, and my dad told so many funny stories of their shenanigans, including Byron hoisting a live camel onto
the roof of the newly built Armstrong-Browning Library at Christmastime!
Their friendship lasted a lifetime. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Byron was my friend about 50 years. He was one of the nicest men I have ever met. Knowing Byron made my life better.

Byron was one of the kindest men I've met. My mother lives in the same Senior Center as Byron did for the past year and a half. There were four of them that would sit together at lunch or for activities. He had a great smile. He was such the gentleman. He would help the women with their chairs as they sat down, and then unfold their napkin for them. It was the sweetest thing to watch. We were blessed to have known him. Rest in peace, Byron. We'll miss you.
