Donald Byington passed peacefully on December 24, 2010 at his home in Sunshine Terrace, Logan, Utah. He was only 44 days from his 92 birthday. Donald was born February 6, 1919 at Lone Pine, near Downey, Idaho to Royal Elliot Byington and Ethel Lovisa Christensen. He was the fourth of ten children.

On March 27, 1943 Don met Maryrose Ruth. They were married on July 27, 1943 in the Logan LDS Temple.

While the family lived in Ogden, Don worked many years for the railroad. Then he moved to Brigham to work for the Utah State Road Department until he retired about 32 years ago.

Over the years many children lived in their home; some grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many foster children. Each of them called this place Home. They have 38 grandchildren, and a few stray dogs and cats.

When asked, what is the one thing you would like your children to know? Don said, I hope each one of my children will live the gospel and try to do unto others what they would want others to do unto them and be honest in what they do.
