OBITUARY:

Lawrence R. Byron III, passed away suddenly at his home, Monday, March 19, 2018. He was sixty-one years of age.

Born in Woburn, Larry was the beloved son of Mary (McGowan) Byron and the late Dr. Lawrence R. Byron Jr. Raised and educated in Woburn, Larry was a graduate of Woburn High School along with the Class of 1975. A very outgoing young man, Larry had served as a Class Officer during his tenure at WHS and was also very active in the Key Club having served as the President of the International Key Club, remaining a very dedicated member of the Kiwanis throughout his life.

Continuing on with his educational persuits, Larry went on to Boston College, receiving his degree in Business in 1979. Throughout his years at BC Larry was involved in various groups and organization, always remaining very active in the BC Alumni organization.

The entrepreneurial spirit came to Larry at an early age. At the age of 10, Larry began selling bottles of Coke on the beach at Hampton while vacationing there with his family. During high school and college, Larry continued on with several other “businesses” that were also quite successful.

“Packaging Outlook” was one “small” business while in college. This was a packaging and shipping business where in the springtime he would set up store fronts in and around Boston (colleges) where he would sell various sized boxes; then send, ship or store them for the next school year. Needless to say Larry was kept very busy throughout the years with this particular adventure.

Larry was ferociously independent and strong willed. In recent years, life’s obstacles became more difficult and challenging. However, Larry took on each and everyday with a phenomonal spirit, wonderful attitude and a strong sense of purpose. He was truly resilient, NEVER giving up or stopped believing, now matter how very difficult it became.

The true “light of his life” was his daughter, Hannah. When she arrived over twenty years ago, Hannah’s birth was the stellar moment in Larry’s life and for her he lived everyday to its fullest.

Along with his mother Mary, Larry is survived by his loving daughter, Hannah Byron of Andover, his sisters, Maureen Fregeolle and her husband Gerard of ME, Ann Killilea and her late husband George and Jane Lowell and her husband Peter, all of Woburn and his longtime friend, Tom Martin. Larry is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews; Amy Patrissi, Maura Agnelli, Robert Fregeolle, Kathleen Killilea M.D., Megan Richmond, Shalen and Rowan Lowell, and 9 great nieces and nephews.

A Funeral Mass will be Celebrated, Saturday, March 24th in St. Barbara’s Church, 138 Cambridge Road, Woburn at noon.
