    My name is Norman Gautreau. I am from Moncton (New Brunswick, Canada), but I’ve been in British Columbia (Canada) since the early 60s. I remember Yvon; I was working out at the Air Force Base in Moncton (called #31). In the 50s Yvon was training for a fight in Tampa Florida; I was prepairing for a fight in New York Madison Square Garden. There was a Chap by the name of Downy; I’m sure his name was Frank? He was a perty heavy (maybe a Middleweight??). He was one tough Guy. Would he be related to the Downys from Nova Scotia (Canada)? Anyway I hope this information is of use to you. All the Best.

    To Norman Gautreau: Dear Norman, seen your message regarding Frank Donney. Frank had served in the Air force from 1951 to 1958. He was at St Hubert Quebec, St Johns, PQ, Borden, Grostenquin, France, 421 squadron, 52-55, then back to Lachine, Quebec. Then up to Churchill, 57 and 58. Dont know which Boxing clubs he had been in. We have photos of him in the force and after. He had thick blond hair. Also spoke french. He was born in Gatineau and was raised as Francois Joseph Marangere. Frank had no relatives under the Donney name. Thank you, Alice.

    I seem to recall a family story that my uncle once fought Yvon Durelle in the ring. His name was Francis (Sonny) Ramsay of Chatham, N.B. I don’t know the date of the fight but if you could find a record of the fight I would greatly appreciate it if you would e-mail it to me.

    Personally, I met Mr. Durelle once when I was 12 years old and shook his hand. It was the biggest hand I had ever seen.

    Thanks for any assistance you can give me,

    Brad Ramsay
