Mr.Robert Dean Byers, 87, of Chambersburg, died Sunday, November 1, 2020 at home.

He was a lifelong active member of the Chambersburg First Church of God where he served on many boards, led Junior Church, coached boys’ basketball, and took much joy in helping to create and care for the church’s Prayer Garden with his beloved wife Marianne.

Robert was a man of unmatchable work ethic and integrity who always unselfishly put God and family first in everything that he did. A natural athlete, Robert played fast pitch softball, basketball, volleyball, and bowling with many local teams and enjoyed attending local sporting events.

Robert was also preceded in death by three brothers, Rev K. Hull Byers, Mr. Richard Byers, and Mr. Jay Byers and is survived by two brothers, Mr. William Byers (wife Bonnie) and Mr. Lynn Byers (wife Donna) and one sister Mrs. Fay Anderson (husband Ray).
