Larry Eugene Yeakle

August 21, 1960 ~ November 24, 2019

Larry Eugene Yeakle, 59, Converse, passed away at 8:50 am on Sunday, November 24, 2019. He was born in Marion on Sunday, August 21, 1960, to Delbert and Rilla (Vetor) Yeakle.

Larry was a production worker throughout his career. He loved gambling, anything Harley-Davidson, and anything outdoors. He was a big outdoorsman and especially enjoyed hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling. He loved his dogs, Nike and Hope, but his family was his life. He dearly loved people and talking to anyone, whether it was out and about or on the phone. For leisure, he liked to play board games and card games. And, when it came to sweets, he loved anything, but...Reese Cups were his favorite.

Survivors include his three daughters, Shanna (Ashley) Sides of Huntington, Lucinda (Nikkia) Johnson of Huntington, and April Yeakle of Marion; son, Matthew (Lisa) Yeakle of Fort Wayne; brothers, Michael (Diane) Yeakle of Marion and Steven Yeakle of Marion; 15 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; three sisters, Mary Ann Reynolds of Marion, Marilyn (Vince) Garcia of TX, and Carolyn (Ron) Caudill of Marion; and special friend, Vikki Yeakle of Marion.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one grandchild; one niece; and best friend, Chuck.

The family will receive visitors from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm on Monday, December 2, 2019, at Integrity Funeral Care, 2901 S. Washington St., Marion, IN.

Immediately following the time of visitation, a service to celebrate Larry's life will begin at 12:30 pm with Pastor Darrell Smith officiating. Burial will take place at Marion National Cemetery.
