  • Notes 
    • ALEXANDRIA -- Robert King Byard left on his final voyage June 14, 1996. This time there was no Navy band playing

      Anchors Aweigh'' but, as in all of his deployments, bidding him farewell was his sweetheart Dorothy who was his wife of 59 years, and his beloved daughter, Connie Hindmarsh.

      After spending his boyhood as a farmer in Huntsville, Ala., where he was born in 1910, Bob joined the U.S. Navy in 1928. There he proudly served his country for 30 years. He rose from a sailor to an officer, fought in two wars, World War II and Korea, and sailed around the world several times on the USS Ships Saratoga, Biddle, Vincennes, Mankato, Chemung and Valley Forge CV3.
