Obituary for Byron Ambo

AMBO, Byron Duane

It is with deep sadness that we, the family of Byron Ambo wish to announce his sudden, unexpected passing, as the result of a single motor vehicle accident, on June 30th, 2023, in London, at the age of 50. Also passed away was Byron’s faithful dog and best friend “Tessa”, forever at his side. Byron was born in Tillsonburg, to his mother Evelyn (Robbins) Ambo, of Tillsonburg and predeceased by his father Jack Ambo Sr. (1993). Byron will be remembered by many as the proprietor of Sekond Skreen (cell phone/electronics repairs) and Ouloo (e-bike sales). In earlier years, Byron was a dedicated employee with Sinden's Paint Ltd. for 20 years, before teaching himself device repair. Byron enjoyed motocross and he spent lots of time dirt biking with friends over the years. Byron will be lovingly remembered by his friends, family and anyone who took the time to get to know him as a sincerely caring and generous person. Byron is survived by his much-loved daughter Madison Ambo (Kendra Bowlby), of Thorold; by his brother Jack Ambo (Liz West), of Courtland; by his sister Lynnette (Andy) Hussey, of Hamilton; by his nieces and nephews: Brayden Ambo, Brooklyn Ambo (Hunter Murphy), Lindsay Hussey (Teshawn), Ashley Hussey. Byron is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and by his grand puppy “Bandit”.
