    Byron was like a second Father to me. I called Mr. Newby Pops . I grew up spending a lot of time at the Newby home. Byron Jr. and Brad were like brothers to me growing up and I still think of Brad as my little brother. I would like to offer my wife Sue and my condolences to the Family. May you Rest in Peace Pops. You were a wonderful man.

  6. Our deepest sympathy to Marlene and the entire family. Byron worked with my dad at Fiberglas and was our next door neighbor for the past 37 yrs. Our granddaughter Aerial spent many summer days playing in the pool with Heather..Good neighbors are rare. We were blessed to have Byron and Marlene beside us for so many years. We will miss them. R.I.P. Byron. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all
