    I worked with Yvon in the lumber camps in the early 50′s in the vicinity of CHatham, N.B. We were very close. I last saw Yvon about 6 or 7 years ago.
    I think of him often. Sincere sympathy to the family. I know his big heart will be missed.

Dad loved everyone equal because to him we are all equal, my sincere gratitude to all of you that loved our dad as much as we loved him, you will never be forgotten dad , from your beau xoxoxo

  3. Our boxing promotion group in Montreal, Quebec, Canada would like to say that we are extremely saddened by the passing away of Yvon Durelle.  He was a great boxer, and a role model as he inspired a whole generation of athletes to practice the sport of boxing in Quebec and throughout Canada.
     
    We just wanted to let his family know that our thoughts and prayers are with them.  God bless his soul.
     
    Respectfully,
     
    Ian Edery for the entire InterBox Team.

    To my old pal Theresa, we had some good times growing up in Escuminac, times that will never be forgotten. Yvonne definitely will never be forgotten. Take Care. Annie

    Mes sincères condoléances à toute la famille. Yvon est un grand homme. I’ll never forget the loonie and toonie trick he had glued to his doorstep. Great sense of humor.

    Sincèrement,

    La fille de Annie Carroll Louise.

    J’aimerais dire mes sympathies à Thérèse et à sa famille. Je n’oublierai jamais Doux car il était un homme très gentil et comique.

    My dad trained with Mr. Durelle in the late fifties, then fought him in 1963 one of Mr. Durelle’s last fights. My dad always talked highly of Yvon Durelle. I wish I had got to meet him, rest in peace champ.

    Archie Moore-Yvon Durelle (I) — Dec. 10, 1958

    Yvon Durlle was my father’s uncle, which would make him my great uncle. Loved the guy to. Never really met the man, but heard he was incredable. Saw all his boxing matches and yep. He was great!

    Bon jour: Mon Francais est limite, donc je utilizere mon Anglais. We are sad to hear about our « family » champ. We live in Mexico and we know that our family roots trace back to L’Acadie. I often cite the sport example of Yvon Durelle in his Moore match to our children.
    Thanks for oportunity to share our toughts on Mr Durelle, un des les plus grand boxeurs au monde.
    Merci beaucoup,
    Ed Durell Jr.

    Bonjour!

    Je suis contente de savoir que la communauté de Baie St-Anne ont souligné Monsieur Yvon Durelle. Mon père Albert D’Amour est natif de Baie St-Anne. Mon grand-père était Antoine D’Amour et ma grand-mère Graziella Turbide. Ma tante Geneviève D’Amour Scofield a demeuré longtemps à Baie-St-Anne. Je n’ai pas de nouvelle alors je me demande si j’ai encore de la parenté la-bas. Mon père m’a parlé des Richard, Boudreault j’ignore le lien. Je n’ai pas connu Yvon Durelle mais mon père m’a parlé de lui. André Durelle qui était son frère demeurait je crois à Montréal dans les années 1970, je me souviens qu’il est venu chez nous à quelques reprises. Salut les gens de Baie Ste-Anne, pour moi et ne soyez pas surpris, si me voyez bientôt dans votre localité.

    My belated condolences to the Durelle family on the passing of Yvon back in 2007. I had the pleasure of meeting Yvon in Moncton at the Chis Rock tavern and got to spent a couple of hours with him. Every bit the sincere humble and caring man discribed here by his son.

    Yvon had that gentle way about him that put everybody at ease although we knew we were in the presence of greatness.

    Yvon may you rest in peace.
