Bryon Marcus Raburn, a talented carpenter for Williamsburg Homes Services, bid farewell to this world on February 10, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of cherished memories. Born on May 29, 1987, in Memphis, TN, Bryon had an adventurous spirit and an indomitable charm that captivated all those who knew him.

From a young age, Bryon displayed a passion for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that endured for over three decades. His dedication paid off when he recently completed his collection of these beloved characters. Among the four turtles, Michelangelo held a special place in Bryon's heart. He often regaled his friends with tales of his favorite hero's bravery and wit.

Although Bryon once attended Northwest Community College, it was his work as a carpenter that truly defined him. Gifted with both skillful hands and an imaginative mind, he transformed pieces of wood into works of art. Through his craftsmanship, he brought joy to countless families who now live in homes filled with his handiwork.

Beneath his charismatic exterior lay a complex personality. Bryon was always hungry for attention and reveled in being the center of any gathering. His infectious exuberance drew others to him like moths to a flame. While some might describe him as self-assured to the point of arrogance, his brilliance shone through every conversation. He adamantly proclaimed himself one of the sharpest minds around but perhaps lacked the wisdom to temper his words.

Bryon's love for reading was evident in the vast range of books that adorned his shelves. From fiction to non-fiction, he devoured the written word with an insatiable curiosity. Music, too, was a constant companion in his life. The melodies of various genres resonated with his soul and accompanied him on all his adventures.

Above all else, Bryon considered his proudest accomplishments to be his children. Jacob "Elijah" Barton, Celeste "Beau" Raburn, Michael Sweat, and Damien Raburn were the lights of his life, filling him with immeasurable joy and pride. His role as a loving father brought out a softer side of him that only those closest to him had the privilege of witnessing.

Bryon leaves behind a strong support system that includes his dedicated wife Melanie (Welzbacher) Raburn, who stood by his side through thick and thin. Inseparable partners in both love and life, their bond was a beacon of unwavering commitment. Jennifer Johnson (Spencer), Bryon's beloved sister, also mourns the loss of her brother along with their parents Kathy Thomas Raburn and William Allen Raburn. 

As we reflect on Bryon's journey through life, let us remember him not only for his flamboyant personality but also for the imprints he left on our hearts. His infectious laughter, unwavering determination, and unyielding spirit will forever remain etched in our collective memory.

In lieu of flowers or donations, Bryon would want us to cherish the memories created together and carry them forward into every aspect of our lives. Let us celebrate his legacy by living each day with the same fervor and zest for life that he embraced so wholeheartedly.

As we bid farewell to this extraordinary soul who walked among us far too briefly, let us find solace in knowing that Bryon Marcus Raburn has now embarked on a new adventure beyond mortal boundaries. May he find peace and eternal happiness in the realm beyond as we hold onto the precious memories he leaves behind.
