"I recall with fondness his calm and collected demeanor, but more importantly, his immense talent that made him an acclaimed music producer. It is disheartening that we have lost Byron at a prime age. We are comforted by the fact that his works of art will live on. To the family, friends, and his fans, accept our sincere condolences. Rest In Peace, Byron."
