Lafayette Township Trustees Lynda Bowers and Michael Costello released the following statement today about Bryon Macron, whose body was identified Wednesday after being pulled from Chippewa Lake. Macron had been missing since Dec. 16:

“Our hearts are broken as we mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, Lafayette Trustee, Bryon Macron. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, beloved wife Victoria and beautiful daughters Alex, Madeline & Mia.

“A man who deeply loved his family and his God, Bryon was so proud to represent the residents of Lafayette, a close-knit township that especially enjoyed his spontaneous wit and ready willingness to help others. Bryon was never afraid to roll up his sleeves and do whatever needed to be done. We will cherish the memory of Bryon’s favorite encouragement ‘Make it Happen.’

“We extend a heartfelt thank you to the members of Lafayette Township Fire and Rescue. With their expert training and professional demeanor, they cared for Bryon one last time in the recovery of his body. Please hold these amazing men and women in your hearts as you do Bryon’s family and the Lafayette Township community.

“We continue to be assured by law enforcement that there is no evidence to suggest this situation should be cause for fear in the community. Numerous law enforcement agencies are working hard to get the answers Bryon’s family and our community deserve.

“The events of yesterday result in a requirement to appoint a third member to the trustee board by March 24, 2017. Letters of interest with a resume should be delivered to the town hall by March 10, 2017.

“We are so very grateful for the overwhelming support from our community. For those who want to help Bryon’s family, contributions can be made to the Bryon Macron Benevolent fund at any Huntington Bank.”
