I have had the pleasure of knowing the Yeater family through Robert L. Yeater II for going on 9 years now. They have always kept an open home, treating friends and guests like true family members. They are a patriotic, proud, dependable, strong-minded, hard-working, fun and loving people. If the progeny of Mr. William M. Yeater Jr. exemplifies such strong character and true American values, I could only imagine what an outstanding man he is. This Valley has genuinely lost a true gem of its native soil. I did not have the honor of knowing him in this life, but I am sure that I will meet him one day in paradise, and rest assured that his legacy will continue to live on through his beautiful family in their talented and promising generations to come. God Bless you Yeater family, thank you for all that you have done for me, you remain eternally in my prayers. May perpetual light shine upon Mr. William M. Yeater Jr. as he rests in peace. Please accept our sincerest condolences.
Graciously In Christ’s Mercy,

The Marin Family.
