  6. Very sorry to learn of Byron’s passing. Byron was the consummate professional at work and a true gentleman. Bryon’s passion may have been the Canadian Rockies, but he was most proud of his loving family. Byron has left us all with great memories.

    My very deepest condolences. Byron was a great buddy. I enjoyed greatly all the hockey times, the monthly planning meetings ( with beer of course) and especially the many spring golfing trips south. He will never be forgotten.

    Mary, Carina, and Anna,

    I had the pleasure and honor of working with Byron at Anadarko Canada and CNRL from 2005 to 2007. He was a very good supervisor and even a better person. I was saddened by the news of his passing. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Mary and Family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. In my experience, Byron was generous, funny and a tough competitor at the rink. I will miss talking cars, astronomy and sports in the dressing room and at Austins with him. I have so many good memories of Byron’s many adventures from his famous “walkabouts” to sharing a goal celebration on the ice with him. I won’t forget him.

    Mary & girls,
    I was deeply saddened to hear of Byron’s passing. I worked with him for 7 years at Anadarko and CNRL. Although it has been many years since I have seen him, I still have fond memories of our working together, he had a great sense of humour and was adventurous, kind, and genuine. I will think of him whenever I pass through the Rockies and how much he loved it there. My deepest sympathies to you. Keep the wonderful memories in your hearts forever.
