Special to the Times


Micheal Cyr, 41, tragically passed away on Aug. 26, 2013. He was born April 27, 1972.

"Mike" or "Mikey," as his loved ones call him, moved to Blythe in 1975 when his father Joel started flying for West Coast Flying Service. Mike also became a pilot, along with his brothers David and Lance, flying crop dusters over the many farms in the Palo Verde Valley.

Mike worked for Albertsons for 11 years where he was well known for his customer service and where he made many lifelong friends. From there he went on to be a produce broker for Almquist Sales before joining the family aviation business as a pilot.

Most recently, Mike worked as an assistant construction manager at First Solar, where he was also outsourced to fly.

He married his high school sweetheart, Valeria; they were just shy of their 10th wedding anniversary.

He was known as the ideal family man and role model of what a marriage, family and relationship should be. Mike especially loved his son, Spencer, and looked forward to becoming involved in all the things his father, Joel, had involved him in.

Mike Cyr loved the river, fishing, dirt bike riding, camping and the snow.

Mike is survived by his wife, Valeria; son, Spencer; father and mother, Joel and Yvonne; two brothers, David and Lance; nieces, Phoebe and Shelby; and a host of relatives and friends.

There will be a celebration of Mike's life on Sept. 4, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Colorado River Fairgrounds.

I am saddened to hear about the tragic news of Michael Cyr. I send out my condolences to his family and friends. I attended PVHS with Mike, class of 1990. We all affectionately called him "Mikey." I recalled Mikey as having a warm smile and a happy heart. I believe that everyone who knew him felt the same way. Mikey was one of those people who was easy to get along with. He loved life and his family and it showed. It has been years since I was last in Blythe and I look back at that time and the town with a wonderful fondness. Part of the fondness was from knowing nice people like Mike Cyr. Again, I send my condolences to his family.
