MOYOCK – Marshall “Mickey” Coleman Byrd, 69, died September 30, 2018. Mickey was born in Portsmouth, VA to the late Marshall and Dorothy Penelope Byrd. In his younger years, he played football on the Princess Anne High School varsity team. Mickey owned and operated MC Byrd Hardwood Floors Co., enjoyed hunting, and was a long time member of the NRA. He was predeceased by a brother, Kevin Byrd.
A mentor, a protector, a supporter and most importantly the best person that a family could ever ask for. It wouldn’t be known by his exterior; a man hardened by a military father that could never express his love in the open, but instead let it shine through with every action and practice he could possibly grant to those around him. He was a loving man who provided anything he possibly could to those he called friends and family, while never asking for anything in return. Often he would jokingly act with aggression when anyone attempted to pay him. His only vices in life were peanut butter, coffee and John Wayne. In his final years, he was quietly pleased that all that mattered was his family and his home.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 33 years, Cindy Jefferson-Byrd; children, Virginia Elizabeth Mae Hernandez of Roanoke, VA, Marshall William Byrd of Lynchburg, VA, Scott Bradley Jefferson of Moyock, Dorothy Penelope Byrd of Moyock, and Marshall Coleman Byrd II of Moyock; siblings, Richard Byrd and wife Julie of Chesapeake, Jimmy Byrd and wife Debra of TX, and Christie Byrd Senn and husband Sandy of SC; brothers-in-law, who were like brothers, Allen Brock of Moyock and Mark Brock and wife Angie of Virginia Beach; grandchildren, Wyatt and Zoey Jefferson; and a host of nieces, nephews , other family and friends.
