A native of Pittsburgh, Father Byron grew up in Philadelphia, where he attended St. Joseph's Preparatory School.

He was ordained a priest in 1961.

Author of 10 books and editor of two, Father Byron writes the bi-weekly syndicated column "Looking Around" for Catholic News Service and a monthly "What Would You Like to Know?" feature for Catholic Digest. His 1989 book, Quadrangle Considerations, won the Catholic Press Association's best book award in the education category.
