It is with great sadness that the family of Cyril "Cy" Dionne announces his passing on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, at the age of 89. Cy will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 50 years, Joan; his children, David (Ann-Laurel), Jean (Salim) Arkin, Rachel (Enrique) Velarde, and Monica; his six grandchildren, Eriq, Evan, Carter, Elisa, Rebecca, and Eva; by his brothers, Clarence Jr., Billy (Joan), Donald and Gordon (Ardelle); and his many neighbors, choirmates and friends.

One of 16 children, Cy was born May 18, 1928, in Menominee, Michigan. He served in three branches of the military: first, in the Navy Reserve, followed by the Navy, where as a hospital corpsman attached to a Marine infantry company in Korea he earned a Commendation Ribbon with Combat "V," and finally, the Air Force.

Cy moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1966, married Joan in 1967, and started a family. He worked as a registered nurse until his retirement in 1992.

One of Cy's greatest passions in life was singing, spending decades in local church choirs and other singing groups. Other interests included genealogy, antique collecting, and crossword puzzles. He was a devout Catholic, member of the Knights of Columbus, and enjoyed volunteering at local charities.

A Viewing will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Rosary at 7:00 p.m., at Utter McKinley San Fernando Mission Mortuary, 11071 Columbus Ave. in Mission Hills.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, October 6, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at St. John Baptist De La Salle Catholic Church, 16545 Chatsworth St. in Granada Hills. Interment at San Fernando Mission Cemetery will follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Cy's memory to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.
