CYR, Peter Michael Thomas

February 10, 1970 – Saint John, New Brunswick
September 2, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with sadness we announce that Peter Cyr passed away on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

Peter hailed from New Brunswick and was especially close with the Roy family and considered Stevie (Tammy) Roy his best friends among others that he also considered extended family and friends. In his younger years Peter loved to play ice hockey and was also an avid golfer spending lots of time on the golf course with his friend Murray Locke. He was also a big fan of the TV show Duck Dynasty and often took it upon himself to try and imitate one of the characters with his full beard. We often referred to him as the bush man and would have a great chuckle over “his look”. Peter loved his cats and had many over the years: Thumper, Squeak, Timba, Buddy, Baby and Bella. He had a great knack for changing the cats name and therefore Baby became Princess, Buddy became Handsome and Bella became Sexy. Pete was rather shy and quiet but once he got a few rye and diet cokes into him was the life of the party.

Peter is survived by his wife Norma Jean MacDonald; mom Patricia Bridge; siblings, Leanne, Craig, Neal and Chrissie Cyr; Aunt Margaret Bridge, Aunt Fay and Uncle Art Cyr; grandmother Teresa Cyr; numerous other aunts and uncles, and brothers and sisters-in-law. Pete had many nieces and nephews who will miss him and remember him fondly. Peter was predeceased by his father Joseph Leo Cyr (February 22, 1995); grandmother Winnifred Bridge (1982); grandfather Robert Bridge Sr. (1974); Uncle Robert Bridge Jr. (2000); and mother-in-law Vera MacDonald (August 15, 2014).

A Celebration of Peter’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North) on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through We would like to thank the staff at the Peter Lougheed Centre who worked extremely hard in order to save his life. These efforts are very much appreciated by family members. In death there is life and with Peter’s donation someone has received a new liver and two people will have a chance at sight. Peter would be extremely happy that he was able to help someone out.

In living memory of Peter Cyr, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

  4. Dear Norma Jean,
    Pete was (and always will be) an important member of our family. I am so sad that this has happened to him (and you) and I know you love him and will miss him deeply. We spent many family holidays together and we always had so much fun. Playing dice or playing scat he always knew how to get you going. So many things have changed in the last year and few months. Blair gone, reuniting with Mom and then losing her, and now losing Pete. When my friend Al died, a counsellor asked me “Do you believe God takes people for good reasons?” I looked at her and said “Well, I guess he needs them more than we do!” Who thought that God would run out of angels but I guess he did and decided that he needed three more. Pete is now soaring with Blair, Nanny, Courtney, Aunt Rita, Mom and so many many more. May he rest in peace and may you find some comfort in all of your happy memories. Love, your sister Brenda.
