    So sad to read about yet another classmate that has passed away. My sincere condolences to his wife Connie and family.
    I knew John from when we were little kids in sunflower Village so many years ago.

    May God comfort you and keep you in the days ahead.

    My condolences to the Yother family and my friend John Yother II. I still remember
    your father taking the time to speak to our U.S. History class, at Central Jr. High School. As Mr. Yother shared his experiences as a young Marine during the Viet Nam War, and upon his return home.

    May God grant him love, peace and honor as he is welcomed home eternally.

    I worked with John in Firestone many years ago. We engaged in rigorous conversation and debate on many fronts and I always thought of him as my friend. I absolutely respect and honor John for his service to our country as a Proud United States Marine!!!
