He was a parishioner of St. Laurent Church in Meriden. Yvon's family was very precious to him. He adored his children and grandchildren. They were the light of his life. He loved the outdoors and traveling to Canada and Fort Kent Maine where he raised his family. Yvon enjoyed sharing many stories of his childhood with family. True to his culture, he was a diehard hockey fan rooting for the Boston Bruins.
He was the father of Lisa Logodicio (Rick Macri), Michael (Tina), Bruce (Amy), and Jeffrey (Jennifer). He was the proud "Papa/Pepere" to his 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Claudette Maillet (Boyd) and was loved by many nieces and nephews.
Besides his loving and devoted wife of 49 years, Yvon was predeceased by brothers Alfred and Normand "Blackie" Sirois, as well as sisters Yvette Bouchard and Laurette Nadeau. Yvon will be remembered as a handsome, strong, and loving man. Everyone who met Yvon was drawn to his deep blue eyes, infectious smile and kind nature. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
The family wishes to thank Yvon's long-time neighbors Rose and Diane Thielman for their love and kindness to our Dad throughout the years.

Dear Lisa and Michael, I don't know if you remember me, but I babysat you when you were living at the Pelletier homestead in Wallagrass many years ago. I'd say it was over 55 years ago. Your Uncles Ray, and Roger might remember me. I remember your dad as a very loving gentle man. I know you have wonderful memories that you will cherish and I know he was the best example as a loving husband, father and grandfather. Wishing you love and peace in your hearts. Love, Leonette (Nanette) Deprey Soucie
