Al YON

Al “Bim” Yon.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Al “Bim” Yon on July 13, 2014. Bim was raised in Rosedale/Chilliwack and started his logging career at an early age eventually becoming a faller and bullbucker. In early 1989 Al accepted a position with WCB so that he could work to find a better way to fall timbers in BC. Everyone that knew him is aware of the profound impact Al had on the forest industry in BC. Left to miss but never forget him is his partner in life Carolyn, stepson Wyatt, his cherished

mother Margaret Yon, predeceased by his father Gerald Yon, Yon’s siblings: Chaz, Diane, Bill, Sharon, Vicky, Greg, Mike and numerous nieces and nephews.

Please join us to share memories in a celebration of life on Sat. Sept. 6/14 at 1 PM @ Cavolotti Lodge 2060 East Wellington Road, Nanaimo.
