Biard, Yvon Joseph Philias (Paul), peacefully and with dignity on December 26th, 2018. Yvon was born December 2nd, 1928, in St. Eugene, Ontario, and was raised with his three brothers and three sisters. Yvon attended Bourget College in Rigaud, Quebec, and after graduating in 1947, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. He married Denise Giroux from St. Clet, Quebec and together they raised their three children, John (Anne Mac Neil) and Sandra (Mike Forbes) of Ottawa, and Susan (Oscar Schuurmans) of Burnstown, Ontario. Yvon and Denise were posted to many locations across Canada and England and, after 18 years together, Denise passed away on November 15th, 1970. In September of 1971 Yvon married Elizabeth Crocker James and in 1973 he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, where he worked until he retired. Yvon and Elizabeth (Jimmy) spent many happy years raising their combined families, enjoying their work, and hosting family dinners at their home on the Madawaska River near Burnstown. After 40 years together, Elizabeth passed away on January 2nd, 2011. Yvon was the loving grandfather of Sarah, John Paul, Kathleen, Jeff, James, Allison, Jennifer, Leah, Alex and Samantha, and great grandfather of Alexander, Ian, Colin, Jackson, Preston, David, Hayley, William, Braydon, Jonathan, Piper, Nicolas, Myles, Kaylee and Oliver. A heartfelt thank you to all the staff at the Groves Park Lodge for the incredible care and comfort they provided to Yvon during the final stage of his life.

Our deepest sympathy to Yvon's family. Yvon was a great guy and lots of fun to be with. We have many memories of our visits with Yvon and "Jimmy" in Germany and then at their home near Burnstown. He will be missed.
