MEDINA, Ohio -- Neighbors of Lafayette Township trustee Bryon Macron are still in shock over the news that authorities pulled his body from Chippewa Lake Tuesday afternoon.

Macron was found months after he went missing Dec. 16, 2016. The Medina County Sheriff's Office confirmed Wednesday night that the body was identified as Macron, and as of Thursday afternoon, investigators have not revealed how he died or whether they have any answers as to why he disappeared.

The Medina County Sheriff's Office scheduled a 4 p.m. Thursday press conference to address the case. Cleveland.com will stream the event on Facebook Live. 

Neighbors who live in Bennington Pointe Development where Macron's family also resides are trying to understand what happened from the time Macron went missing until his body was found in the lake. The whole incident is bizarre, neighbors said Thursday.

Matt Shamis, who lives near the Macrons, said that Byron Macron was a well-liked and well-respected man.

"He was a great guy, just a typical family man," he said. "Neither one of us ever missed a neighborhood party. That is the kind of neighborhood we have. That's the kind of person Bryon was and we were."

Shamis is still shocked that his friend and neighbor is dead.

"Obviously everyone's concerned about the cause of death," he said. "Was it self-inflicted? Was it a murder?"

A kayaker discovered Macron's body about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Divers pulled the body from the water and took to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office for identification and an autopsy.

The kayaker who found Macron, Frank Webber, told cleveland.com Wednesday that he saw a bump in the water in the distance. He at first thought it was a doll or a mannequin, but soon realized it was a body.

Webber asked a couple walking their dog if he could use their cell phone to call 911 after discovering the body.

Macron deeply loved his wife, Victoria, and their three daughters, Alex, Madeline and Mia, Lafayette Township Trustees Lynda Bowers and Michael Costello said in a statement.

"....Bryon was so proud to represent the residents of Lafayette," the statement says. "Bryon was never afraid to roll up his sleeves and do whatever needed to be done. We will cherish the memory of Bryon's favorite encouragement 'Make it Happen.'"

Authorities told the trustees that there is no evidence to suggest this incident should cause fear in the community, according to the statement.

Macron, 45, had been missing since Dec. 16. A Lafayette Township employee found his office in disarray and seemed there had been an altercation.

Macron's SUV was found hours later in a public parking lot at Chippewa Lake, authorities said at the time. There was blood found inside the vehicle.

Macron was someone anyone could go to in a time of crisis, neighbor Jen Wuersig said.

"He would have a direction or a solution for you," she said. "If you were having a problem, he would be the first to say, 'You know, let me help you with that.' He's going to be so sorely missed."

Wuersig, who always went to the Macron's annual Fourth of July party, is devastated that this happened and said the news sent a shockwave through their neighborhood.

"There was so much speculation of if he left. I guess for me that never crossed my mind knowing the guy he is and the dad and husband that he was," she said. "As a wife and a mother my heart is breaking for Victoria and the girls because I couldn't imagine."

Janet and Tom Pindroh remember Macron and his wife, Victoria, being one of the first to welcome them to the neighborhood when they moved there in 2006.

Macron headed up the homeowner's association when the Pindrohs moved in.

"He was very outgoing. He made you feel at ease whoever he was talking to," she said. "Any problems we had with the HOA I knew I could call him and he would get back to me."

Macron was a man who would help at the drop of a hat, Pindroh said, noting a time he helped Tom with drywall.

"We're going to miss him," she said, getting choked up as she spoke. "We're going to miss him badly."
