My condolences to his friends and family. I really got a lot out of his very well done books.

He definitely leaves a professional as well as a personal legacy.

All the best for his family. I had his books in the past for several of my cameras too.
Better learned how to use my stuff.
For Yvon: Have always good light, weherever you are now.

My condolences...

Loved his books and his writing and his photography. He will be missed in the Pentax world.

Thank you for all your hard work, Yvon.

Rest in Peace,

I'm very sorry to say that I've learned that our well-liked Pentax eBook author, Yvon Bourque, passed away in late January. There has not yet been a memorial service, so I plan to sent flowers on behalf of the forum once I learn more.

Please feel free to share your thoughts in this thread and I will forward them to Yvon's family.

In the mean time, the eBooks will remain available and Yvon's family would like to carry on his legacy.
