Butler, Ohio

BUTLER:  Larry A. “Yogi” Bebout, age 58, of Butler passed away Monday, September 25, 2017 at his home.

He was born July 29, 1959 in Mansfield, the last of four sons to John W. and Eileen (Pfeifer) Bebout.

Larry worked at various jobs but most recently was an underground cable consultant for Palmer Enterprises.

Yogi desired to live a simple life as a “mountain man” enjoying the outdoor life.  He loved hunting squirrel, rabbit, deer and fishing.  Surrounded by friends he liked sitting with them at bonfires and cookouts.  He also liked cards and could throw darts.  Most of all, Yogi was generous, giving anything he had to anyone who was in need.

He is survived by  four children Joshua (Denise) Bebout of Nuremberg, Germany, Jerri Bebout of Mt. Vernon, Jeremiah (Brook) Bebout of Mansfield, and Ashley Bebout of Lexington; 7 grandchildren Joshua, Jonah, and McKenzie Bebout, Jasmine Brokaw, Aleigha, Jenna and Jaxon Bebout; and three brothers William Bebout, Richard (Sharon) Bebout and Samuel Bebout all of Butler.

The Bebout family is planning a private bonfire to honor Yogi.  For more information please contact them directly.
