It gets more difficult each time a name of a member of our class shows up on the "In Memory" list.                  Byl became a multi-talented force in the entertainment industry. His persistence and hard work paid off for a successful career as he excelled as a director and movie and television producer. Byl also had a passion for performing as a singer, songwriter and lead guitarest for the Rythm and Blues band "Cafe R and B", along with his wife, Roach and Don Swanson on drums.                                                                                                                In addition to the aforementioned talents above most people have forgotten Byl's acomplishment as a top rated "choreographer" from back in our days at F.I.S. There was to be a 7th and 8th grade talent show over at Lanterman Auditorium. Byl convinced some of us that we could pull off performing as "The Temptations and The Supremes". It was quite an undertaking. With Byl's patience(and a lot of practice at Byl's home on Lyons Drive) we managed to perform our synchronized dance moves to the applause of the SRO audience and a ton of money...                                                                                                                                                     My heartfelt condolences and God's comfort to Byl's wife and son and to Byl's brother Tim and his sister Annie.
