It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of (Alfred) Byron Hammond at his home in Logan Lake, BC, on September 5, 2019.
Byron was born in Zeballos, British Columbia. As the eldest child in a military family, he travelled and lived all over Canada, eventually settling back in BC. He worked for 32 years at Highland Valley Copper and retired in 2010.
Byron spent the first years of his retirement enjoying fishing, camping and rounds of golf with friends.
In his later years he was content to visit with his younger brother and best friend Doug – quite often dropping by to see their ‘little brother’ Wayne, to give him the news of the day. Byron was a devoted son and visited his mom regularly at Kamloops Senior Village until she passed in December of 2018.
Byron was a true character. He was very kind hearted and generous and will be sadly missed by his brothers Douglas Hammond and Wayne Hammond (Marianne), his nieces Erika Hammond and Kirsten Hammond, as well as numerous extended family members and friends.
A graveside service will be held at 1:00pm on October 3, 2019, at Hillside Cemetery in Kamloops, BC.
