Byron had a great love for beaches and went as often as he could. He also had a profound interest in World War II history. His love of dogs was evident in the love and care he provided for his own pets. But most importantly, he cared for his family.
Byron attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He was a tax accountant by trade and was employed by a number of firms in the Opelousas and Lafayette areas.
He was a charitable person, giving much support to several organizations, one of his favorites being M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
Byron was a member of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Opelousas.
Special thanks are extended to the staff at Lafayette General Medical Center at St. Agnes Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Breaux Bridge.
