It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Cy, a husband, father, grandfather, and friend with such a big heart and passion for music.

He retired from the CBC in 2006 after 30 years as a VTR editor and technician, and was an engaged member of Wesley Mimico United Church community.

He will be forever missed by his loving wife Karen, children Erin (Gabe) and Daniel (Catherine), grandchildren Olly and June, brothers Roderick (MaryLou), Brian (Arlene), and Frank, and a great many extended family and friends.

He was predeceased by his parents, Roderick and Ella (nee. Slattery) MacPherson, brothers Jimmy and Harry MacPherson, and sister Gail Meunier.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his memory to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation’s Multiple Myeloma fund, the Heart & Stroke Foundation, or your local food bank.

He would love if you put on an old John Prine record, looked at some old photos, and called up an old pal.

I have nothing but fond memories of my years working with Cyril at CBC. Always up for a good time with a beer and his guitar in hand, he was also a caring listener who just naturally gravitated to the sunnier side of a problem. I still remember him speaking of his diligent efforts to catalog all of his collected music in a computer spreadsheet when MS-DOS was still something wondrous and new.

My sincere condolences to Karen and family at this terribly sad time. It was so nice to share lunch with him just last Fall. I was looking forward to many more. A good man taken far too soon.

So sorry to hear about Cyril’s passing. I have fond memories of him playing his guitar and harmonica in the VTR area. His music 🎶 lightened our work area through the years. He was a kind and gentle soul. My deepest condolences.

We've been friends for nearly two decades ever since moving from CBC Radio to TV News and we became much closer since we both retired. I will miss Cy, as I am sure that we all miss him, and I’ve spent a lot of time lately thinking about how we’re going to remember him now that he’s gone. He was someone who loved life and the life of a party who loved singing, playing the guitar and a variety of music.
Cyril was a warm, generous, and kind person with a positive attitude on life and a fundamental faith in humanity and a great inspiration. I will always cherish his friendship and his positive outlook. Now that he’s gone, it’ll be hard to find someone I can talk to and hang out for regular lunches and someone who will always have my back no matter what.
Our sincere & heartfelt condolences on the sudden loss of your beloved, Cyril. Our thoughts & prayers are with Karen, Erin/Gabe, Daniel/Catherine and family.
Adios, Amigo!! We’ll all miss you a lot. Thanks for the memories. Gone too soon, buddy! Rest in Peace until we meet again!!!
God Bless,
Gracy, Malcolm Carrasco & family
