Yvon "The Beast" Cormier
Picture of Yvon "The Beast" Cormier my mother took at a fair in Memramcook, New Brunswick in 1974. She could only remember his nickname at first, so I had to look up the rest. :p The beard reminds me of the Vachons, whom I'm sure he worked with many, many times. The name Leo Burke and Emile Dupre came up a lot in research too.
Here's an article on him from 1999: http://www.canoe.ca/SlamWrestlingBios/beast_cormier.html
And one from 2006 about he and his family: http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/2006/05/13/1578648.html
