LAURENT (CUB) CAYER
May 21, 1930 - January 6, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Laurent (Cub) Cayer on January 6, 2022.
Cub is survived by his loving wife Joyce, of 64 years, children: Kim, Travis, Gina (Dave), and Jamie; grandchildren: BJ, Ashley, Cheyenne (Vlad), Madisson, Cassidy, Peter Cub, Malea and Maddux and great-grandchildren, Paige and Emily; as well as his best friend Jay Jay the dog.
Cub was an avid sports fan, from playing to watching. He poured his heart and soul into baseball. Cub was also great at horseshoes, pool, curling, and golf. Friends often said he should be in the hall of fame and Cub of course agreed.
Cub always welcomed people into his home with a glass of wine, though he was always most pleased when he got to see his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved to bounce them on his knee and sing, go blueberry picking with them, pull them in a wagon with the lawn mower, feed them beans from his garden, and in later years, sit out in the front yard and have some drinks.
When Joyce speaks of Cub, there's a little twinkle in her eye every time. The first thing she mentions is how handsome he was and the second is how talented. Every morning for as long as she can remember, Cub would get up and play his music, with each song a memory and a story... and for that reason, Cub will always be our mixtape.
A private service will be held for family at the Vassar Catholic Church. On Saturday, January 15, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. there will be an open house at the Vassar Hall. Interment at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made towards the Vassar Community Rec Centre to plant trees in Cub's honour @email@example.com.
