Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Becky Yates of Chipley; three sons, Steve Yates and wife Lisa of Chipley, Todd Yates of Leander, Texas and Mark Yates and wife Alison of Lynn Haven; one sister, Edwina Showers of Chipley; nine grandchildren and two great- grandchildren.

Memorial services were held at the First Baptist Church in Chipley with the Rev. Michael Orr officiating.

“We will miss him in Kiwanis Club,” Page said. “We made him an honorary lifetime member when his health got to where he couldn’t attend meetings.

“I think his service and what he meant to the Kiwanis Club was evident by the number of Kiwanians at the service today,” Page added. “There were a bunch of us there.”
