Club Honors Late Member with Formal Proclamation

Irving—The Greater Irving Republican Club held a memorial for late member Loren Byers at Spring Creek Barbeque on Tuesday, Jan. 4.

Byers passed away on April 23, 2021. Due to the pandemic and lockdown, a ceremony to honor his work and community service needed to be postponed.

“We’re hoping for this to be a nice memory for the family,” Jacob Bywaters, political director for Senator Hancock, said.

The Club provided a redflower bouquet to Mr. Byers’ wife, Kay, and two sons, Lance and Loren James “Jamie” II.

“[Loren] thought a lot of this club,” Kay said. “It meant so much to be involved in this community and to give back.”

State Senator Kelly Hancock presented a proclamation to Byers’ wife and children.

“[Loren was] a great example of an individual willing to give selflessly to his community, to this group, to the Republican Party,” Hancock said. “Just a really great guy. The time he spent for others, taking away time he could have spent for himself, is to be commended.”

Byers was a long-time member of the Greater Irving Republican Club and was involved in politics in a multitude of capacities. He owned L.J. Byers Real Estate LLC, where he worked as a real estate broker for eight years.
