Sad news indeed. All the best to Byron & his family.
It is difficult to separate Byron from Gordon as the nicest person on the boards as they were equally as good as each other.

Very sad indeed.

Can't really add to the good comments already.

Best possible wishes,
Martin

Any news on Byron?
The latest news is that he is still hospitalized fighting a difficult battle, but with the support of the medical staff and family members he is hanging tough . Hopefully his persistence and perseverance will see him through, qualities that helped him deal successfully in the past with challenges as formidable as the present one.

Dear Byron, or should I say Chuck. Pierre has informed me that your health has taken a turn for the worse. Im so very sorry to hear this.

I know we don't know each other, but I just want to thank you for creating Team Carl Sagan. A group that inspires yet another generation of dreamers and star gazers to ponder what is out there beyond the clouds, all while encouraging them to look back at Carl's great body of work. I imagine he would be greatly honoured to have such a group, with such a purpose, working in his name.

Sending you and your family all the very best wishes from Australia,

James.

No new Facebook posts. Last one was in May. Checked for obituaries and found his father's but nothing for Byron. I take that as good news. I did find a report that Byron Hatch was arrested for car theft of a 1981 MERCURY CAPRI. I suspect that was someone else.

OK, I will see what I can do to find Byron. I'll update this post with any finds.

I don't have any special access or powers, but I do also live in Canada, so at least the phone calls will be inexpensive!

Edit: I am very sad to report that, as had been noted earlier on July 26th that he was in his final days, Byron did indeed pass on August 13th of this year peacefully in hospital. As he was a very private man, with this project being a rare and fortunate exception, there is no remembrance page for him elsewhere.

I will edit the thread title and the remembrance page appropriately.

Pierre A Renaud FCD @ team Carl Sagan , seems to have had contact earlier with Byron's niece Catherine Hatch. Her Facebook address: https://www.facebook.com/catherinehatch

At least according to this post from him, in this thread: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=85565&postid=2054110#2054110
