Mr. Byron Trefonides Sr., of Westport, formerly of Waltham died Thursday, April 19, 2018 in Wingate of Weston. He was 86.

Born June 28, 1931 in New Bedford he was a son of the late Nicholas and Despina (Mistiloglov) Trefonides.

Bryon was a larger than life figure and proud of his Greek heritage. He was a member of Waltham Triad Lodge of Mason's A.F. & A.M. Living near the water in Westport afforded him time to go fishing and playing rounds of golf with friends.

MacClary and her husband, Robert of Westwood; his grandchildren, Jeslyn Monaghan and her husband, Richard, Nicholas Trefonides and Stephanie Trefonides; his great-granddaughter, Freya Monaghan; his brother, Steven Trefonides and his wife, Phyllis of Brookline; nieces & nephews.
