Obituary

Byron J. Duncan

June 3, 1988 – October 29, 2019


For over two years Byron answered the God of Death with ‘not today.’ Finally, on October 29, he replied ‘today.’

Byron was liberated from his prison of pain and suffering, the greatest gift we could give him. He left with me and John holding, comforting and embracing him with love as he passed; he was not alone.

Byron was born in White Plains on June 3, 1988 to Kerry Kelly (his stupid sidekick Kablooey) and the late Robert E. Duncan . He is survived by his adored sister Kelly (aka Kelly Beenz or Chicken), uncle Dennis J. Kelly in Colombia, and devoted friend and brother for life, John Cambareri and family.

Byron was a graduate of White Plains High School (’06) and will always be a Tiger. He was a three sport athlete and proud member of the football team. He also attended William Paterson University where he continued to play as a member of Pioneer football.

A lover of a cold beer and Johnny Walker Black, a good cigar, and oysters, Byron liked nothing better than indulging in all with friends. His passions included fishing (more than one got away), shooting (clays never had a chance!), Subarus (hence ‘Duncaru’), annoying video games, amateur photography (what an eye!), the NY Rangers and (until this season) the NY Giants; and most importantly, loving and laughing. Never a dull moment with his wicked humor and sarcasm and always up for a good time, he could light up a room. To quote a friend: “May God bless you with unlimited beer and ammo in heaven.”

Thank you to all who visited, prayed, sent good thoughts and supported him through this ordeal. It was a small group of great friends who shared the precious gift of their time with him; you will never know how much it meant to him that he knew you loved him. Special thanks to John and his unwavering devotion; he never left his side and took this too-long, horrible journey with us every step of the way.

Please know Byron fought hard and did not want to leave – but he had to. Our wish is that he is not forgotten, that you remember him fondly and often. We hope his legacy will be kindness to others, appreciation of those with special needs, love of friends and family and a good time!.

In lieu of flowers, Byron would appreciate donations to Kelly’s program: ARC of Westchester Foundation, 265 Saw Mill River Road, Hawthorne, NY 10532.

Please join us to say good bye on Sunday, November 3 from 4p-8p at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, 418 Bedford Road, Pleasantville; www.BeecherFlooksFH.com.

Byron, we will miss you every minute of every day. God speed my love; until we meet again.

Dear Kerry, Kelly and family. Lonnie and I were saddened to hear of Byron’s passing. I remember meeting you shortly after Byron was born, and through the years we saw him grow into a handsome young man. As the years went by, we lost touch and didn’t know Byron was ill. Please accept our sympathy. Lonnie and Stephanie Lewis

Byron your smiling face and quick wit will be missed! There are so many wonderful memories of you and Kelly growing up with our kids, Kristen and all the Trenton Avenue kids. Touch Football and Basketball on the street, Movie and Chinese Food nights, House Parties, BBQ's, Block Parties, Easter Egg Hunts! My favorite times were Halloween when we went out as a pack! Then you all grew up and started making your way to college and into the world. Through it all you always remained Kelly and your Mom's champion, doing your best to help and protect them. Byron you are a good son, brother and friend. Rest now and be healed in the good Lord's Hands. You will be missed until we all see each other again. Love always, Helen, Mike, and the O'Shea kids, Lisa, Marni, Michael and Lucas
