Byron graduated from Benedictine College Preparatory School and honorably served in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1955. After serving his Country he worked for over thirty-five years with Jones Motor Car Company in Richmond selling Cadillac’s.

He is survived by his sister Carol Cone of White Oak Pennsylvania, many nieces and nephews, and the love of his life, Helen R. Mika.
He will be remembered as a kind man who was a true southern gentleman.
