The USBA was proud to call Bob Byrne a friend and supporter. After his passing in December 2016, the USBA held a banquet in his honor at the 2017 National Championship Tournament. Perhaps his most famous work - Byrne's New Standard Book of Pool and Billiards - is still a "must have" for every billiard lover's library. (Click image below to learn more.)
