Devin, who was 20 years old, was from Remington, Indiana. He went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, May 7, at Deaconess Hospital of Evansville, Indiana, due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Devin passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family and close friends.
Devin was born October 8, 1996 in Portland, Maine, to Jerry and Julie (Cassidy) Cyr and welcomed by his big sister Olivia. He was a 2015 graduate of Tri-County High School where he was vice president of his class, a National Honor Society member, a member of Business Professionals of America, Hoosier Boys State, 2015 Junior Achievement Outstanding Economics Award Winner and on Student Council.

He started with Remington Soccer Club at age three, played for St Joe Travel Soccer and travelled the Mid-West with FC Revolution.
Devin was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. His deep faith led him to serve his church as an alter server, lector and president of the Catholic Youth Organization. He participated in Notre Dame Vision, Destination Jesus and attended Nation Youth Conference several years. Of particular importance to Devin was the ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ program he initiated with his youth group.
Devin just completed his sophomore year the University of Evansville where he studied mechanical engineering. He was a brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at the UE and was devoted to his brothers, the philosophies of the organization, and the ‘Balanced Man’ program.
