    Stony and I worked together at PHI. He was one of the most even keeled and down to earth people that I have ever met. It was an honor and a privilege to have made his acquaintance.

    It was a sad moment to learn of Byron’s passing. Byron and I flew together in the same Flight command at Southern Airways in the sixties. I considered him a good friend and I am sure hie will be missed by all who knew him.

    Pasty, Kathleen and are so sorry for the loss of Byron. We flew together at Southern Airways and at PHI. He was always a good friend and we enjoyed exchanging email and "hanger flying" at our Southern reunions. He will indeed be missed. Our friend from the Texas panhandle, "gone west".

    Stone as he was know to us at PHI, was such a great guy. He was so kind, so funny and he was a reminder of Justin Wilson. I truly enjoyed working with him. May he rest in peace. I will see him again. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
