      Funeral arrangements were under the direction of the Paul Funeral Home in Powassan. Ken died on Friday, January 19, 2001 in his 55th year at Sudbury.

      Kenny Byers was the beloved son of the late Kennthe Thomas Byers and the late Pearl Irene (Loxton). He was the dear brother of Gerald Byers, Wakefield, Que., Shirley Schell (Ken), Severn Bridge, and Gwen Clark (Lee) of New Balitmore, Michigan.

      He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and friends, and is survived by his son Nelson.

      Ken was born on the family farm on the Alsace Road. He was the youngest of four children born to Kenneth Thomas Byers and Pearl Irenen (Loxton). He grew up and remained in the Alsace, Nipissing and Powassan area.

      Ken worked with his father on the farm and enjoyed trapping with him. He carried on farming and raised beef cattle. He lived a life close to the earth and wasn't afraid of hard work. Ken was a skilled brick layer for many years.

      One of his favourite sayings was, "Forget about it." In his spare time, he was busy hunting, fishing, trapping, snowmobiling, or just outside enjoying nature with his dog, "Peanuckle Joe."

      If anyoine was ever to ask him for help, he was there for them. Kenny had a good heart but was rough around the edges.
