It is with great sorrow that the East Chicago Public Library announce the death of East Chicago Public Library Board of Trustees Secretary, Byron “Duke” Florence. He was a friend and dedicated member of the East Chicago community. He served on the library board of trustees with pride and dignity. He was a true advocate for the children of East Chicago. He will be truly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. Please keep his family in your prayers during this time of sadness and bereavement.
Those we love don't go away
they walk beside us everyday.
but always near
so loved, so missed
so very dear.
