Obituary for Herman Joseph Yeagle, Jr.
Herman Joseph Yeagle, Jr., age 55, of Caldwell, Ohio, died Friday, January 23, 2015, at Wexner OSU Medical Center in Columbus. He was born September 3, 1959, in Zanesville, son of the late Herman C. and Hilda Lucille Archer Yeagle. He was a 1977 graduate of Caldwell High School, and following school, he went to work for Fuqua Homes in Caldwell. He was also employed by Greenland Petroleum, worked in the logging industry, and was employed by Fabri Form, R&J Trucking, and Buckeye Davis Excavating. In 1992, he founded J.R.’s Dozer Service, and he also owned and operated a family farm for many years. Mr. Yeagle enjoyed coon, rabbit, and deer hunting, and he loved running cars in demolition derbies as well as attending truck and tractor pulls. He was an avid gun collector, and he enjoyed attending auctions and working on trucks and tractors. He also enjoyed collecting old Mack trucks and Caterpillars. He was a jack of all trades who was known as someone who would give the shirt off his back to anyone. But most of all, he loved his family, and he enjoyed spoiling his granddaughters.
He is survived by his wife, Rebecca L. “Becky” Brown Yeagle, whom he married January 6, 1979; one daughter, Kristy L. (Ryan) Lori of Caldwell; twin sons, Joseph A. (Maggie) Yeagle and James J. Yeagle, both of Caldwell; 3 granddaughters, Tylee Cobb, Rylynn Lori, and Mya Yeagle; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.
