Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 am Wednesday, Feb. 15, at Our Lady of Sorrows Church. Burial will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Tom was born June 22, 1965, in Kansas City, MO., to John and Helen (Bollinger) Byrne. 

      He was a 30 year veteran of the Kansas City Fire Department and retired as a Battalion Chief. Throughout his career on the fire department he was dedicated to the safety of the public and his fire department family. He joined the Brotherhood Instructors, LLC, which allowed him to travel the United States and Canada teaching fire safety tactics. He was a member of the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the September 2001 attacks. He was a member of the International Association of Firefighters, Local 3808.

      Tom was preceded in death by his father, John F. Byrne (January, 2003). He is survived by: wife, Stacy; daughter, Colleen; mother, Helen Byrne of Kansas City, MO.; sister, Debbie; brother, Michael of Kansas City, MO; brother, Kevin of Overland Park, KS; sister Ann (Kevin McGinnis) of College Station, TX; and brother Stephen (Andrea) and several nieces and nephews: Riley, Derek, and John Byrne, Joey, Megan, Julia, and Matthew McGinnis, and Lila O'Sullivan.

      The family would like to thank all of Tom's doctors and nurses at the various hospitals and clinics where he received treatment. We extend a special thank you to the ICU nursing staff at Saint Luke's East Hospital who helped him to be comfortable in his final hours.

      In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts are suggested to the Healing NET Foundation, 200 Hill Avenue, Suite 4, Nashville, TN 37210 or at www.thehealingnet.org. The Healing NET Foundation's mission is to support education and awareness of neuroendocrine cancer among community physicians, and help patients advocate and navigate the path to the best possible care.

      Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters

      The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters would like to welcome our newest Affliate Local: Lake City, MO Fire Fighters.  Lake City Fire Fighters protect the individuals that work and reside at the Army Ammunition Production facility, located in Independence, MO. 

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.

Also I have the link down below for the Facebook group page that has even more information, the link to buy tickets and all about the hotel and its discounted prices.
