One donor's story: William Byrne

  • St. Paul
  • Eyes
  • Deceased Donor: 2004

William was a very loving person. He had a HUGE heart and would have given his shirt off his back to whomever needed it. He was a loving “hands on” father. He learned many traits from his parents, he could sew, rebuild an engine in a car, iron clothes, cook food, cut hair, work on electronics, and most important to him, paint his daughter’s fingernails.

The most important thing in his life was his family.  He married his wife Cindy Lou (Creasy)  on  4/15/83.
His children were the light of his life:
James Lee Byrne 9/24/84
Sarah- Elizabeth Joi Byrne 7/11/84
Cassandra Lea Byrne 3/6/95
Savannah Elvira Byrne 7/11/99

William had always wanted to be a donor, He was a firm believer in “helping out your neighbor”. He chose to be a donor 15 years prior to his death.
