Dolores Yohe and Family, I am so sorry for your son Ken's passing. I do know that he was very ill for a long time. Glad he is not suffering any longer and is among the angels, in God's loving arms. May God be with you at this time. Deepest Sympathy, Kim

My condolences to Mrs. Yohe, Emory, Deb, Kathy, Wayne, Scott, Trevor and the extended Yohe family. Growing up next door, Ken was a guy with a gruff exterior but underneath a heart of gold. As a kid tagging along to a Yankees/Orioles game, Penn State game or just walking with the dogs down to the creek Ken would sometimes jokingly refer to me as his fourth brother. I didn't mind it at all.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I met Emmy after his motorcycle accident when he was a patient at Hanover Orthopaedics. I was introduced to him by my husband Rick. He was always so kind. He will be missed. RIP my friend and say hi to Rick for me. Nettie
