When Megan Simpson didn’t receive a daily phone call from Crittenden Mayor Ralph Byrley, she feared the worst.
Byrley died at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2 at his home following a long battle with cancer.
“He was such a good Christian person,” said Simpson, who is the city clerk of Crittenden. “He was just a part of the family and will be missed.”
Byrley served on the Crittenden City Council on three separate occasions. He was elected mayor of Grant County’s northernmost city in 2007.
