Yvon's life revolved around his love for family and friends, whatever Yvon did, he did it fully, unwaveringly, with open arms. He had a passion for helping others and went out of his way the best he could to help many who had the honor of knowing him. He was a kind man, with the most generous spirit and had a smile that would light up a room. Yvon was born in St.Catharines on November 26th, 1952, moving to Welland where he remained a lifelong resident of the city. He was an avid music lover and musician and played with the Barons, Rufus Walker and most recently Flashback. Yvon was a member of Club Richelieu where he dedicated a tremendous amount of time and effort to support the Club for many years. He was also a John Deere retiree. Special thank you to his caregivers, Dr. W. Oelofse, who was not only his doctor, but a good friend, his personal nurses, Jocelyn and Kim who treated Yvon with the utmost respect and dignity during his short journey. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life to honour Yvon will be held at a later date. Memorial donations, in memory of Yvon, may be made to the Walker Family Cancer Centre at the St Catharines General Hospital.
