Obituary for John Byron Hurlburt

Byron Hurlburt, 80, of Oak Park, IL, beloved husband of Carol Hurlburt for 54 years, loving father of Dorothy and Byron, and Evan, and caring grandpa of Steven and Winston, went to be with the Lord on February 16, 2015. His welcoming smile will be remembered by many. The son of missionaries, Paul Hurlburt and Helen Lundgren, Byron was born and grew up in the (Belgian) Congo in 1934. Throughout his life he carried on his family's tradition of serving others and sharing his faith both here and in Congo (Zaire), Uganda, and Kenya. He applied his skill with languages, working with others to translate Christian materials into several African languages. Byron was buried at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois. A memorial service to honor Byron's life will be held on Saturday, March 7 at 1:00 p.m. at Oak Park Avenue Baptist Church at 3101 South Oak Park Avenue in Berwyn.
