Byron was a world traveler, lover of tennis, dancing and life. Byron first came to Canaan as a child, and fell in love with its country side. In the late 90’s , after retiring as a real estate executive in New York City, he and his wife Ingrid made their Canaan retreat home. Byron and Ingrid created not just a beautiful house surrounded by natural beauty, but a sanctuary where the family could gather and created countless memories together. Byron shared his love for nature by contributing a large portion of this property to the Columbia County Land Conservancy.
Services will be private for the family. Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of Devanny-Condron Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family is asking that donations be made to the Creutsfeldt Jakob Foundation which is doing research on the incurable disease that took Byron from this world.
