March 10, 1936 – July 26, 2020
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Yvon Carignan, at the age of 84, in Cranbrook, B.C.
He was born in St. Felix de Dalquier, Quebec and met his wife Gloria in Malartic. Together they had four children and now have many grandchildren and great grandchildren. He loved bringing his family together. So many great times were shared outdoors camping, skating, swimming and skiing.
Yvon had many skills, which led to multiple career paths. While living in Quebec he worked as a welder and ran a gym with Gloria. The family moved to Williams Lake where he worked as a welder and diver. Another move took the family to Prince Rupert. He fished commercially, diving for abalone. After leaving the fishing industry he started working as a carpenter. For many years he maintained the church and school buildings for Annunciation Parish.
Yvon and Gloria eventually moved to Cranbrook where they have spent the last 26 years. Yvon continued to work as a carpenter in the community.
Yvon is survived by his wife Gloria, his children Serge (Virginia), Jocelyne (Carl), and Guy (Noreen), and his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is survived by his brothers Gérard (Micheline), Jean-Marie (Joanne), and Germain (Simone), his sister in law Pauline and son in law Wayne.
He was predeceased by his parents Alexander and Germaine, his brothers Jules (Jeannine), Roland (Diane), and Roger and his daughter Carole. He will be deeply missed by all his family and his many friends.Obituary
