Norman L. Yarger
August 19, 1932 ‒ October 16, 2019
LEXINGTON: Patriotism is not some short, frenzied outburst of emotion, but the calm and steady dedication of a lifetime. Norm Yarger was a patriot. He passed into the Lord’s care Wednesday, October 16, 2019 from James Cancer Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. He was 87.
Born August 19, 1932 in Mansfield to parents Norman W. and Margaret (Keiser) Yarger, Norm was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School and served four years with the United States Air Force – with a year of service in Korea.
He worked ten years with McClures’s Lawn & Garden as a technician before accepting a position with Therm-O-Disc, a company he served 29 years in production maintenance.
Norm always enjoyed small engine repair, classic cars, and an afternoon fishing – but his first love was his family, and enjoyed being at their sporting events.
He was a member of Lexington Church of Christ.
He is survived by his wife of sixty-six years Carol (Bemiller) Yarger, their children Jodie (Terry) Fogle of Lexington; Jeff Yarger of Johnsville, Jerry Yarger of Lexington and Jon (Chea) Yarger of New Albany; grandchildren Todd Yarger, Sarah Fogle, Michael Fogle, Tyeler (Tina) Yarger, Brandon (Kaylie) Yarger, Turner (Kayla) Yarger, Matthew Yarger, Christopher Yarger and Ellie Neitzel; great grandchildren Brayden Fogle, Cayden Brown, Kinsley Yarger, Kenna Yarger, Brinley Yarger and Bennett Yarger; brothers Robert (Jane) Yarger of Lexington, Tom (Sally) Yarger of Montpelier, VT, Don (Susan K.) Yarger of Ontario, a sister Susan L. (Wes) Welch of Lexington; a sister-in-law Marilyn Yarger of Mansfield; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a grandson Kevin Fogle, and a brother William Yarger.
A graveside funeral service will be held Friday, October 18, 2019 at 1 p.m. in Shauck Cemetery near Johnsville with Pastor Cory Schnuerer officiating. Military honors will be offered by Irvin Hiskey Post #535 American Legion, Bellville. The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is handling funeral arrangements.
