My sincere sympathies to the family of Bill Yinger. I practically grew up with Dean in MI, living on the same street, and in FL, living in the same city! Our families kept in touch with each other even after the Yingers moved to the Carolinas through visits, phone calls, and Christmas cards. I will miss his Dad, Bill, and his Mom, Evie, they were both such wonderful souls!
You were a dear man whom I always respected and admired. You will missed and thought of often. Rest In Peace My Friend !
