Obituary - David Eugene Yoos

David Eugene Yoos, 64, passed away on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at Landmark Hospital in Joplin due to complications of heart failure and diabetes. Dave was born October 21, 1956 in Pittsburg, KS to Ralph Eugene (Gene) Yoos and Norma (Pettibon) Yoos.

Dave was a 1975 graduate of Bronaugh R-7 High School. He was raised on the family farm and worked on the farm after high school. Later, he worked for a subsidiary of the Kansas City Southern Railroad in Kansas City, Missouri. During his Kansas City days, he loved his part time job selling concessions at the Royals /Kaufman Stadium and enjoyed his days watching the Big Leagues. Dave was a lifelong sports fan—football, basketball, and baseball especially. He loved family, friends, card playing, math, riddles, trains, and having fun.

David is survived by his son A.J. Yoos Verdusco; mother, Norma (Pettibon) Yoos; one brother, Lewis H. (Hank) Yoos (wife Michele); one sister, Norma Jean Yoos; niece and nephews, Sheena, Derrick, and Jared (wife Amber) Dickey; great nephew and niece Keyton and Jordyn Dickey. Also surviving are uncle, Bill D. Yoos, aunt, Madeline (Yoos) DeCuyper, and aunt, Margaret (Pettibon) Leatherman; and many beloved Yoos and Pettibon cousins and their families near and far.

David kept close contact with relatives, old schoolmates, and friends. You were his joy in life. Even as his health failed, he had a corny joke or a riddle to keep people guessing and smiling.

Graveside services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at the McKill Chapel Cemetery in rural Bronaugh, MO. Friends may call from Tuesday morning until 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday at Ferry Funeral Home in Nevada.

Those who wish may contribute in his memory to the McKill Chapel Cemetery Association or to a charity of the donor’s choice in care of the funeral home.
