One of three children born of a mother from Taloyoak and a father from Yellowknife, Byron travelled and worked throughout Canada before moving to Taloyoak in 2007, and is one of Taloyoak’s newest recruits. Proud to serve his country, his passion for becoming a Ranger was ignited by his sister’s tragic disappearance in Yellowknife in 2010. Despite the community’s best search efforts, she has never been found. Search and Rescue remains a key aspect of being a Ranger for Byron. Byron works as a cook at Taloyoak’s hotel and lives with his partner, Vanessa, and their two small children.
