It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Maurice "Jay Byrd" to his friends at Fort Hunt. Jay lost his battle with cancer on August 15, 2016 in Wilmington, NC.  Jay attended Radford University where he met and later married Beverly Walker of Marion Virginia. Jay and Beverly moved to Myrtle Beach where they had 2 children, Ashley Byrd and a son, Reese Byrd, who passed away May 6, 2017.  Jay's remains were scattered at the beach that he loved in Wilmington.
