Sad news I'm afraid - I was told by a mutual friend that he has died and the funeral is this morning. For some of us it will be the end of an era. No further details I'm afraid.

For those who did not know him, Byron was an institution and the face of Blackheath Morris. Even when people were on holiday abroad if people mentioned Blackheath Byron's name would come up.

He will be much missed as one of life's great characters

Sarah

I'm so sad to hear this news - Byron was indeed a great character, and underneath his rather gruff exterior a very sensitive man.
One of my fondest memories of him was back in 1974, when Blackheath were invited by Greenwich Council to accompany a party on a town twinning visit to Saumur in the Loire valley. Blackheath were short of a couple of dancers for the weekend and contacted Hartley for help. Myself and the late Stuart Ansell obliged and had a great weekend with Byron, the Lewis brothers et al. We were taken on a tour of the local vineyards (bad move) and then expected to dance that evening in a parade through Saumur! Of course we did, but I'm not sure what the locals made of Blackheath (does anyone?)!
RIP Byron Daniels - I hope you've found peace.

I wonder what they put in the cake for the wake?

Remember Byron really well when I was an Art Student at Camberwell in the 1970s. We went on a trip to Amsterdam once with the Blackheath Morris and were banned from all the squares there because of the riotous behaviour by some of dancers, Byron being most definitely one of them! I'll never forget it, hilarious!!

Strange that this thread has re-surfaced after several years I well remember Byron from my days with Hartley Morris, and was only thinking of him a few weeks ago !!.
He was a Bricklayer if I remember correctly, with Huge Rough Horny Hands and a Face the colour of a Tomato, no doubt brought about by his liking for a pint (or two, or three!!) together with a reputation as a cantankerous B***er, but if you caught him in a quiet moment he was actually a thoughtful and surprisingly sensitive man.

I am glad this thread has resurfaced! The original post is not marked as an obit thread and so I missed it when first compiling these lists. How could we forget Byron! My condolences to all who knew him and love him.

RIP

Peter
