He was a sports fan as well who enjoyed croquet and horseshoes. He was employed as a lab technician for BASF Inmont for over 35 years.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Emily Turner Byrd; his daughter, Sonia Byrd Justice and husband Alex; two grandchildren, Emerson Justice and Peyton Justice; his brother and sister, Mike Byrd and wife Judy and Sheena Hilton and husband Bobby; and a number of nieces and nephews.
