You left us too soon, bro. We will miss your sweet smile, your wry humour, your kind and caring nature. Holding you with love in our hearts till we meet again.
Byard was my friend.
He was always the person to offer a helping hand, a kind word or a thoughtful gesture of support.
I think back to a lot of the times through the years that he and I just did stuff.
From High School, College, University , travelling the country and beyond. The Adult Years.
Byard was my friend and he will be sorely missed.
I will miss his wisdom, his love of his family and his funny way of knowing things.
He knew when it was time to do the thing that needs to get done and he would be happy to do it with you.
His presence and influence are part of what made him a gem.
Those that were lucky to know him, knew that he loved to be a part yet apart.
I was lucky enough to know him over a long period of time and learned what a true friend could be.
Our condolences to you and your family.
Farewell dear Byard
I’ve known Byard for almost 40 yrs.as long as I’ve known David.
He was David’s best friend and it showed in their behaviour towards each other.
One thing about Byard was he was always good to go,it didn’t matter what the activity was. He could walk for miles and never complained.
Once we had moved to Halifax, David would visit him as often as he could and it was always the highlight of his trip.
Our son Ian grew up knowing Byard and they could gab for hours about anything.
We will miss his quiet wisdom and when Ian and David visit Toronto it won’t be the same.
