My name is Alex Chester, I had the privilege of working with Byron on a forklift unloading dunnage. I remember him as a quiet person until it was time to let go and then you better be ready to laugh. He was a few years older than me and I had been there since 1978, and he worked me like a dog. He was rather strong and I was not. But I did have good times and a lot of laughs working close with Byron, HE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL!!!
