Paul Andre Cyr

October 31, 1963 - May 12, 2012


Paul was born and raised in Port Alberni, BC. At a very early age Paul found his life’s ambition – to play hockey. He enjoyed a very successful Junior hockey career and was chosen to represent Canada at the 1982 World Junior Hockey Championship where Canada won it’s first ever World Junior Championship. He realized his dream of becoming an NHL player when he was drafted into the NHL in 1982 by the Buffalo Sabers. Paul played NHL hockey for ten years and was well liked by both the coaches and the players.
Paul met his wife Connie in Port Alberni in June of 1997. Paul was a talented carpenter and after rebuilding their home in Port Alberni that was lost to a fire they decided to move to Courtenay; in 2007 Paul and Connie moved to Nakusp, BC, where they ran the Nakusp Hot Springs Cedar Chalet.
Paul is survived by his wife Connie and step children Katlyn and Shelby, mother Flore Cyr Davis (Ron), sisters Claire Cyr (Ron), Alice Bennett (Keith), Lina Bowen (Dan), Monique Prouten (Gerald), Suzanne Jones (John), and Diane Hollman (Mike), brothers Leon Cyr ( Dawn), and Henri Cyr (Joanne) as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
