We honor the life and celebrate the home going of Bobby “Shawn” Byrd, who was called home to rest Sunday, November 26, 2017. He was born on February 21, 1979 in Portsmouth, Virginia. He was born to Sylvia Watson and Robert Sharpe, Jr (deceased). Bobby was known as Shawn by his friends and family. His favorite past time was playing basketball, watching Lebron James and his Eagles play, and spending time with his family and friends. He was a loving and funny husband, father (Pops), grandfather, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, and neighbor. Shawn will also be remembered for having a “heart of gold” and will be deeply missed and live forever in our hearts. He leaves to cherish his wife, Debra Byrd, five step-children (James, Cordell, Cornesha, Warzell Jr, and Isaiah) who all reside in the city of Portsmouth. His mother Sylvia Watson and grandmother Florenza Byrd. His siblings Keisha Ridley (Stephon) Tarsha Watson and Rayshawn Robinson. His aunts (maternal) Temeka Byrd, Tiffany Byrd, Crystal Byrd, (paternal) Michelle Sharpe, Cynthia Daniels, and Cheryl Taylor.
