He graduated from Madelia High School in 1974, and went on to the University of Minnesota Technical College in Waseca, MN, where he earned his Associate’s in Animal Industry Related Technology Diversified Agricultural Production and Applied Science in 1982. David loved dairy farming and enjoyed creating and balancing feed rations for other farmers. He even won several awards and was featured in a farming magazine! Always committed to doing work that helped others, he founded Dave’s Provide a Ride, a transport service that helped individuals in need get to appointments, shopping or family functions. He was an avid motorcycle rider, taking yearly trips across the country with friends. David was one of those people who everyone knew, and a trip into town was always a way for him to catch up with old friends. David is survived by his children, John Byro, Amy Byro and Derek (Ray) Byro; stepson Aaron (Stephanie) Pope, their son William; and honorary son John “Vern” Schmidt and family; brothers Mike, Doug, Richard, and Tom Byro. He is preceded in death by his parents, honorary parents Cliff and Dorothy Dorn. Memorials are preferred to Alzheimer’s awareness research or your local VFW.
