Yves was born on November 18, 1953 in Port-Au-Prince (Haiti) to Joseph and Jeanne Pernier. He was the fifth of seven children. He grew up in Port-au-Prince, moved to New York to further his career, then finally settled in South Florida, a few years ago.

Growing up, Yves was very studious, always curious to expand his horizons and really enjoyed playing sports. After completing his University studies, he joined the Foreign Affairs Ministry, as a career diplomat. Over the next decades, he traveled to the United States and the Dominican Republic, to represent and defend Haitian interests.

While stationed abroad, Yves took great pride and was known to go above and beyond, to serve and assist the Haitian Diaspora in any way he could. Over the years, he also made sure to instill this pride of service to his children.

It is this pride in service, coupled with his love for sports and country, that later led him to join the Haitian Soccer Federation, as an administrator. For many years, he worked very hard to improve and promote his favorite sport.

Yves had a passion for painting. He also loved researching everything associated with Haitian culture. And he combined his two favorite hobbies to create extraordinary art. His paintings of various vistas and elements of Haitian culture were and will continue to be much admired by his friends and family.

Yves is survived by his two children, Melissa and Alex. His sisters Andrée, Marie-Carmelle, Nirva and his brother Serge. And a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Those who preceded him in death, his father and mother, Joseph and Jeanne. His sisters, Marie-José, Yvrose and his brother Claude.
