It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the death of Byron Bibbs, Reggie’s brother and mechanic for the Just Ask World Tour bus. Byron suffered from COPD and apparently had an asthma attack at 1:30 am April 15 and died en route to the hospital via ambulance.
Services will be held this Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Merry Olive Baptist Church, 2804 McGowan and Delano, Houston Texas. Viewing at 10am. Service at 11am.
I have spoken with Byron’s family and they ask, in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to Byron’s favorite charity, the Just Ask Foundation.
In the early days of the Just Ask World Tour, Byron, a mechanic, proved to be a Godsend helping us fix the bus and making it road worthy to help us raise awareness of neurofibromatosis.
While Byron wasn’t a rich man, he never asked for anything in return for his services. I think he was very proud of his participation in the Just Ask World Tour and especially very proud of his brother, Reggie.
Because of Byron, the Just Ask World Tour lives on. And now, because of you and the Just Ask World Tour, the beautiful memory and legacy of Byron can live on forever.
