As a youth he was known for his athleticism, love of motorcycles, and his keen ability to work with his hands. After graduating from Regina High School he went on to become a skilled carpenter which provided opportunity for him to work all over the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. He was able to use this talent to build his own family home in Curling. In addition to his work as a tradesman, Byron demonstrated a passion for sporting pursuits including scuba diving, water skiing, and skating and loved sharing in these activities with his family. Byron was also a dedicated volunteer to the Canadian Red Cross. Donating blood over 100 times; this compassionate act had a significant impact on society.

Though unable to continue his employment he remained active; enjoying leisurely walks, chats with his neighbors, and a good crossword puzzle. His pride in his children and grandchildren was evident to anyone who met him. It is with great fondness that his children recall his constant presence and enthusiasm for their activities and successes and nothing gave him more joy than hearing about a milestone or achievement of one of his precious grandchildren. Byron is also survived by his brother Bill and sister Maxine. He was predeceased by his parents, Stanley and Pearl Brown. Cremation has taken place.

CROSSLEY, Joyce Daphne
Born: July 20th, 1943
Passed on: July 3rd, 2017

From the cradle,
to the crib,
to eternity.
Predeceased by her father Eric, 2006 and mother Violet, 2017. Worshipping her memory are siblings: Max (Pauline), Donald (Ann) and Hardy (Maxine); sister Floretta Murphy (Gerald). The rose never permitted to blossom. Would dear Lord that Joyce could convey her innermost feelings - thus - I was denied life's journey of joy, sorrow and success. However, I sensed the sound of music, the song of the birds, the whispering wind. So too the endearing touch of family love and I was truly blessed to have sensed the love and commitment of the Angels of devotion at the Eastern Health Hoyles-Escasoni Complex. Weep not for me for I am no less than those princesses and poppers that have departed this earthly coil. The golden trumpet shall sound, the Heavenly Veil to open and perhaps, just perhaps on the other side a rope to skip, a bike to ride and _______ a prince to love.
