He was a partner in the firm of Pyburn and Pyburn from 1937 until 1952. He served in the U.S. Army for five years during World War II and held the rank of major upon discharge.

While in Shreveport, Mr. Pyburn was active in local, state and American bar associations and in business and civic organizations.

Services Wednesday will be at 10 a.m. in the chapel of First Methodist Church here with Dr. D. L. Dykes, pastor of the church, officiating. Burial will be in Forest Park with arrangements under the direction of Osborn Funeral Home.

Mr. Pyburn was a former member of First Methodist Church.
