Cynthia Marcotte had her whole life ahead of her. She stopped at only 29 years old. The Quebec influencer, known for her wise advice in cooking and nutrition, died this Saturday, July 16. It was his companion who was responsible for announcing the painful news on social networks.
Life is sometimes unfair. This is exactly what the subscribers of Cynthia Marcotte, Quebec influencer queen of cooking and nutrition advice, and William Grondin Tremblay, the young woman’s companion, must think. The latter, no doubt accustomed to reading the many posts of his darling, followed by more than 26,000 subscribers on Instagram and 30,000 on Facebook, this time spoke in his place to announce his death: “My name is William and I have been married to Cynthia for over 13 years. Today, I have the difficult task of announcing his death to you, he begins. Saturday evening, on returning from a bike ride, we were hit head-on by a car. Cynthia died of her injuries en route to hospital.“
The tragedy took place on Saturday evening, July 16, in Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes in Centre-du-Québec on route 265. A vehicle, traveling at high speed, hit the couple who were riding a bicycle. If William escaped with a few scratches, Cynthia was more seriously affected and succumbed to her injuries. The lovers have shared this same passion for several years, a practice to which William had also introduced the young woman.
Devastated by the loss of the one who shared his life for so long, William still found the words to thank the community of Cynthia without which she might never have come this far: “I want to personally thank the people who have followed Cynthia over the years. Without your testimonials and your beautiful words of encouragement, she would never have been able to do all that she did. I hope you will excuse the brevity and direct nature of my message, it is the best I had the strength to do under the circumstances..”
Cynthia Marcotte and William were together for 13 years. In the media La Tribune, he confided a little more about their life together and the pain of absence: “We did absolutely everything together, we spent our entire days together. For me, it’s worse than just losing my girlfriend. I don’t know how I’m going to go on without her. (…) Cynthia was an extremely generous person of her time. She took the time to respond to absolutely everyone who contacted her..”
For now, no details have been released regarding the circumstances of the accident. An investigation is still ongoing. After thanking Cynthia’s supporters, William Grondin Tremblay concluded his message in a very unique way: “I leave you with the last image that Cynthia took – a photo of us happy during the walk.” Indeed, in the comments section, we discover a selfie of the duo, all smiles, more than happy to share this new moment together. No one knew then that it would be the last …
