Ronald Yeager Obituary

Ronald Zane Yeager, age 89, passed away October 11, 2023. Born at home in Elton, PA, he was the youngest child of the late Frank and Sylva (Layman) Yeager. Ron proudly served the U.S. Army in Berlin, Germany. Returning home, he met and married Patricia Carolus and thus began a true romance that lasted 66 years. Making their home in Pittsburgh, they raised three children Lauren (Mark) Schukart, the late Diane (surviving spouse Dr. Steven) Marks and David Yeager. A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Ron was an avid Panther Fan. Ron spent the majority of his career in the insurance industry. He had owned two agencies in Beaver Falls and Crescent Township. In his free time, Ron loved playing on men’s senior softball teams and was proud they qualified for the world series. Ron and Pat traveled extensively over the years, taking their kids along on some amazing trips. Along with his parents, Ron was preceded in death by his three sisters and their spouses, Violet (Ray) Perry, Melva (Paul) Bloom, and Iva (Roy) Havener. He was most devastated by the loss of his daughter Diane in April of this year. Ron’s greatest joy was watching his grandchildren grow into adulthood. He leaves Zachary Schukart, Dr. Jake (Kenzie) Marks and Abby Marks to cherish all the love and support Grandpa gave them through the years. From boyhood, Ron loved the Lord. Always a selfless and compassionate person, his final act of kindness was as an organ donor after death. The family wishes to extend their gratitude for the exceptional care he received at Heritage Valley Sewickley. This includes the ER, the doctors and especially the nurses and aides on the 7th floor. Ron will be interred privately at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. The family requests donations to a charity of their choice. Arrangements by Copeland’s.
