Byron William Easton (92) of Roscoe, IL died September 13, 2011 at

Provena St. AnneCenter, Rockford. Born November 21, 1918 in Harlem,

IL. Son of Byron Walker Easton and Ethel (Thompson) Easton. Married

Vivian (Dolly) Bubert, January 15, 1944 in Argyle, Il. Byron lived

his entire life as a man of the earth and faith in the

Harlem-Roscoe area. He loved his family, the touch and smell of

fertile soil and watching Godís creations grow. He was a dairy

farmer who came of age during the Great Depression and lived by

hoping for the best, expecting the worst and being grateful for

everything. As a farmer Ecclesiastes 3 and the 23rd Psalm were two

of his favorites. He was a patient and compassionate listener who

often greeted you with a smile and a gleam in his eye because of a

small joke he was playing.
