From Col Telah Morrison:

Sad news.  I’ve always enjoyed working with MWO Yvan Cottenoir, and when I was unit CO with him as President of the Legion.  He was always ‘larger than life’, always smiling, and a the rare ‘old timer’ who knew how to ‘fix’ things so that we find solutions.

From Pierre Gosselin, President of Legion Branch 265:

It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our comrade and former president from 2009 to 2011, Mr. Yvan Cottenoir.  All of the branch members join me in offering our sincere condolences to the family.
