Sadly and unexpectedly on September 5, 2012, Yvon Cyr passed away. He had been looking forward to attending the Acadian World Congress in 2014. In his place, Yvon’s wife and sons, Judy, Daniel and Denis would attend. It was an event that gave them great pride in the accomplishments of Yvon and his memory, as many many people came forward to express sympathies and to tell stories of how Yvon helped them find long lost family members. They credited him with bringing their families back together!!!
