5-Year-Old Logan Byard Loses Battle

By Amy Bingham | 

Sad news today for a former member of our WBKO family. A grandson of former employee Mike Giorgio, has lost a battle with a disease.

Five-and-a-half-year-old Logan Byard died yesterday, Jan. 15, 2007 at Vanderbilt Hospital. Logan suffered from a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a condition where a hole in the diaphragm causes stomach organs to go up into the chest. He had been in and out of the hospital many times during his young life.

Visitation for Logan will be Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007, from 2-9 p.m., at J.C. Kirby and Son, Lovers Lane Chapel and Friday, Jan. 20, 2007, from 2-9 p.m., at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.

Logan’s funeral will be Saturday morning at 11 a.m., at St. Joe’s.
