I had the honor of serving under then Commander Bob Byng in Attack Squadron 34, stationed at Naval Air Station, Oceana Virginia. I was a squadron pilot and enjoyed the quiet yet firm leadership he exhibited. He had a way of extracting the best performance from his aircrews and squadron personnel without being harsh or demanding. His leadership set an example for me as I progressed in my career. Captain Byng will be missed. Brian Horais, USNA71 Knoxville, TN

Captain Byng was a great fixture at St. Aidan's and the father of four wonderful kids. I was so surprised and saddened to hear about his passing. I had the pleasure of seeing Capt. and Mrs. Byng last on Saturday, October 3rd when they were the first to arrive at my mother's 80th drive-by birthday party. They arrived with big smiles and tons of balloons. What a great memory. We have one of his wooden trains that was made for my son. My sympathies to Mrs. Byng, Ted, Gretchen, Rob, and Kris. Kris I would love to send a card if you want to email me or find me on FB.

I know that our fellow members of St. Aidan's Episcopal Church will agree that Bob was one of the core of our fellowship. We will miss him but take comfort in knowing he's in his Lord's arms now, and will be forever. God's Peace Bob. Jean & Barry

Mr. Byng making his weekly visits to our Navy Federal branch was truly the highlight of our day. Although I grew up in Little Neck I never had the pleasure of meeting him until his regular visits started a few years ago. The entire staff loved him and knew that a little train was coming out of his pocket sooner or later. Most of the time it got passed on to the delight one of our smaller members but often it made it's way home to one of our own kids, grandkids or just to show off and tell a story over dinner of a really nice customer who built wooden toys. I expect every NFCU employee that passed through our Pembroke branch in the last few years has AT LEAST one wooden toy train made by the awesome Mr. Byng! He will truly be missed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

CAPT Byng inspired my pursuit of military aviation. I still have the camo jacket he wore on combat missions. He gave it to as I was heading to Nam. He was a rare man indeed.

He was the embodiment of unconditional love. Family was first and he was the kindest most compassionate person I have ever known. I love you Dad!
