In Memory of Yvon Picard
Passed away at home, surrounded by family on Monday, March 15th, 2021 in Carlsbad Springs ON at the age of 69.
Beloved husband of 47 years to Francine Picard (nee Desjardins). Loving father of Rachelle, Jacynthe and Andréane (Patrick Larose). Cherished grandfather of Alexandra. He will be sadly missed by his siblings Noëlla, Colombe, Anita (the late Wilfred Harrigan), Andréa (the late Robert Séguin), Agathe (Gérald Séguin), Marcel (Claudette) and Michel (France), as well as his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces and friends.
Predeceased by his son Jean-François, his parents Julien and Cécile (nee Tessier), his siblings Anna, Léopold (Raymonde) and Conrad (the late Pauline).
Yvon was a 35-year employee of Bell Canada, where he retired as a Project Manager. His career brought him and his family to live in New Zealand for 2 years, which he cherished with fond memories. He went on to work for the Government of Canada, consulting as a Project Manager.
He was a former president of the Carlsbad Springs Optimist Club, a former Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Council No 9519 St-Laurent, and an active member of the local Caisse Populaire branch’s board of directors. He was a true gentleman, loved life, the outdoors, golf, travelling (especially with his 5th wheel), woodworking, and his Star Trek. He was always ready to give a helping hand to his family and friends, and very generous with his time. He will be missed by many.
