One of a kind

Dear Editor:

When I moved to Aspen in 1980 and started playing golf at the Aspen Golf Course, Yvon was like a father figure to me … always a friendly smile … always a sage word of advice to help your golf game or anything else you needed advice on.

I can see him now hitting golf balls alone at dusk, sometimes on the range but mostly somewhere out on the course. I remember laughing so hard at his stories so many times. He taught me much about the love of the game and I will never forget my old friend, the “Chief.”

Yvon, you were like a father to me for many years and I will always treasure your friendship. I hope there is golf and wine where you are. Rest in peace, pro.
