It is with great sadness that I must pass on the news of the passing of our friend, Yvon Richard.
Loving companion to our friend Nicole Lacourse, he will be greatly missed.
Our Condolences to Nicole and both their families.

Yvon was also a valued member of the ORAPEX Committee and a great help over many years . With his work at ORAPEX with the physical organization of the frames and the exhibits, as well as many other tasks for which he always seemed to be available.
