Bruce Anthony Byrd, 72, of St. Louis, MO passed from this life peacefully on Wednesday, April 5, 2023.
Bruce was born on November 7, 1950 in Waynesboro, TN to Charlie and Rachel Byrd. Before his retirement, Bruce worked as a hotel operator for Dunn Hospitality Group out of Evansville, IN. He was a lover of art and an avid pen and ink artist and painter in his retirement. Whether in his professional life or his personal life, Bruce was the consummate host and loved to entertain and take care of guests of all kinds.
