Hector Roland CyrJune 1, 1936 ~ September 26, 2017 (age 81)
Hector Roland Cyr, 81, bravely earned his wings on September 26, 2017.
Hector was born in Madawaska, Maine on June 1, 1936, to the late Felix and Lina (Ayotte) Cyr. He made his home, raised his children and was a business owner in East Hartford for many years, prior to moving to East Hampton in 1995. He loved his family, friends, animals, toast (white bread only!), pasta and coffee. He proudly served in the US Army and was an accomplished roofer and “fix it” man. He was always willing to help anyone, and his generous and kind spirit will be remembered by all he touched.
Hector leaves his wife of 57 years, Phyllis, of East Hampton. He also leaves his daughter, Debra and her partner, Patrick, of East Hampton, his son, Roland and daughter-in-law, Denise, of East Hampton, seven grandchildren, Jessica, Christopher, Dakota, Brandi, Robert, Revelin and Kane, and three great-grandchildren, Kahleel, Kahleah and Jahleel. He also leaves his brothers, Gilbert, Normand, Chanel, Bertrand and Roger, and his sister, Jean. He was predeceased by three sisters and one brother. His special cat, Muffin (Muff Muff), and his fur grandchildren, Ace, Cada and Paisley, will miss their dad and Pepere immensely. Hector had many special in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends, too numerous to name individually; however, they were very important in his life and he would want you all to know how much you meant to him. He was instrumental in helping to raise his grandchildren, Christopher, Brandi and Robert, and his influence will remain a guiding force in their lives forever.
The family would like to offer a special thank you to the caring staff and volunteers at the Middlesex Hospital hospice unit, who were so wonderful to both Hector and our family during his last days.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, October 2, 2017, at the Spencer Funeral Home, 112 Main Street, East Hampton, CT, at 11:00 am with the Rev. Gerald Kirby Pastor of St. Patrick Church officiating. There will be a one hour visitation, from 10:00AM until the time of the service. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.
