Yvon Babin, 80, of Moncton, passed away on Saturday, July 11th, 2020 at the Moncton Hospital.
Born in Atholville, NB, he was the son of the late Antoine and the late Bertha (née: Benwell) Babin.
He was at his happiest when
surrounded by family and friends, always bringing a smile to faces
through his sense of humor and love of laughter.
An outdoorsman at heart, he truly found joy in spending time in nature with his sons, trout fishing in the spring and summer and deer hunting in the fall. It was never about if he got anything to bring home but who he brought with him to spend time with.
He is survived by his wife, Jeannette (née: Bourque); three sons: Denis (Brenda) of Riverview, Regis of Moncton and Eric (Shelley) of Miramichi; four sisters: Thérèse, Nanette, Yolande and Adeline "Gaizie"; three brothers: Marcel, Gerald "Gerry" and Paul; two grandchildren: Josh (Meta) and Brittany; one great grandson, Brooks, as well as several nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by one sister, Marie-Jeanne and also by five brothers: Gilles, Roland, Roger, Raoul "Ralph" and Raymond.
Respecting social distancing, visitation will be held from the Chartersville Funeral Home, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe (857-1901), on Friday, July 17th, 2020 from noon until 1:45pm.
A private funeral will be held.
