Larry Byrd, Col.
Dec. 18, 1935 - June 19, 2023
(Ret) - Strategic Air Command
Colonel Joe Larry Byrd, USAF (Ret) went to be with
our Lord and Savior on June 19, 2023. We know he is
there celebrating with his mama, daddy, sister,
brother-in-law, many aunts, uncles, cousins and
Larry, as he was known to anyone who knew him at
all, was born in Waco, TX on December 18, 1935 to
Joe Baily Byrd and Josephine Barron Byrd. He grew up
on a farm near Mart, TX. He graduated from Mart High
School in 1954. He headed to Texas A&M University,
Class of '58, and graduated with a degree in
Geology. He met his beloved wife, Vida Bess Brown,
on a blind date set up by Vida's Baylor roommate,
and Larry's cousin, shortly after graduation.
Larry headed into his career as a pilot in the
United Sates Air Force immediately following their
wedding in 1959. He served in the Strategic Air
Command as a B-52 pilot and had an illustrious
career. He was stationed all over the world which
included an assignment in
the war. He received his MS in Counseling and
Guidance in 1972 from Troy State University. Years
later, while serving in a command position, he found
out that there was a search for a Professor of
Aerospace Studies, which was also the Vice
Commandant of the Corps of Cadets, at Texas A&M
University. This seemed like a dream assignment, so
he threw his hat into the ring, thinking it was a
longshot. He was given the assignment and it turned
out that he was right - this truly was his dream
assignment! Where else are you required to attend
every TAMU football game as part of your job? Larry
absolutely loved his time serving at TAMU, teaching
young men and women what it takes to be an officer
in the USAF. This was his last assignment in the Air
Force, and he retired, completely fulfilled, in
1988. He returned to his rancher roots when he
bought a cattle ranch in Emhouse in 1991. He ranched
that until he fully retired in about 2015.
Through all his success, Larry was an extremely
humble and honorable man. He loved God, family and
this country and would have laid down his life for
any of them. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. He
earned his classification of marksman in both pistol
and rifle at a young age and maintained it until he
was well into his 70s.
No matter where the Air Force took him, Larry made
sure to find a church home for him and his family.
He taught Sunday School in several churches and was
ordained as a deacon at the First Baptist Church of
Montgomery, AL. He was an active member of First
Baptist Church of Corsicana from 1991 until his
