A lifelong battle against cystic fibrosis, a comparatively rare disease, came to an end at 1:50 a.m. today for 17 year old Byron Dean Beyers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bracel "Epie" Beyers of 1228 J Street.
Byron had been in and out of hospitals all of his life. He went through elementary and junior high school, but was forced to drop out of school in the ninth grade. Despite his ailment, however, he learned to play the guitar and composed several religious sons. His condition became critical earlier this month and he entered St. Joseph Infirmary at Louisville, KY, April 15. He died today at that hospital.
Byron was born September 2, 1951, the son of Bracel and Marjoried Yeskie Beyers. He is survived by the parents; a brother, Billy, at home; the paternal grandfather, Lafe Beyers of Bedford; the maternal grandmother, Mrs. Clara Ball of Bedford, and several cousins, aunts and uncles. He attended and was very active in the First Assembly of God Church.
Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, April 19th in Elmwood Chapel of the Day & Carter Mortuary with Rev. E J. Bruton officiating. Burial will be in Cresthaven Memory Gardens. Friends may call at the mortuary after 7:00 p.m. today.
