John D Yarger, surrounded by his loving family, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on September 21, 2019. John was born April 10, 1926, and lived in the Akron area his entire life.
John was preceded in death by his wife of 69 years and the love of his life, Mary; his parents, John and Lela Yarger; siblings, Fred and Vivian; grandson, Denis Giroux; great-granddaughter, Brianna Yarger; and son-in-law, Dr. Stephen Farkas.
John is survived by children; John (Ruth), Janice (Daniel), Jim (Kathy), Dorothy, Rebecca (Eric), Christine (Steve), Brenda (Roger), Mary (Dennis); 17 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.
John dedicated his life to being the best Christian, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and friend that he could be. He lived his life for God and served Him in every way he could. He was faithful to missions, and gave generously. He never tired of telling everyone he met the story of his salvation. John was an avid hunter and fisherman and the best times of his life were the summers spent at their cabins in Quebec.
