William Howard Yergin, 72, of Wooster, OH, died unexpectedly of a heart attack on October 21, 2021.
Bill was a beautiful spirit, an exemplar of integrity, loving kindness and enthusiasm. He leaves behind the love of his life, Diana Kathryn (Stewart) Yergin, known as Annie; beloved daughters Lindsay Witt (Brian), Chelsea Gajadhar (Jermey), and Courtney Yergin; Annie ™s children, Katie Pack (Scott) and Nathan Rearden; a sister, Linda Ruth Nesbit (Sam) and nieces, Christy, Bethany, Karyn and Mareike. Bill was a loving grandfather to Rook, Cirren, Owen, Kyle, Sawyer, Lillian, Juliet and Madilyn.
Bill was born in Canton, China on August 15, 1949 to Howard V. and Martha P. Yergin. In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by his younger brother, John.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 2:00PM at The Federated Church, 76 Bell Street, Chagrin Falls, OH.
Bill was a graduate of Mamaroneck High School in New York, 1967; The College of Wooster, 1971, and Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, 1976. His private practice was in Chesterland, OH.
Bill had many interests and pursued them with gusto! He was an avid reader and a life-long learner. Bill was a true history buff with a keen interest in the Civil War. He was both a hiker and a biker and loved a good trail in the beautiful countryside. Bill enjoyed being a youth soccer coach and referee. Gardening was another of his passions, and he devoted many hours as a volunteer at the Holden and Secrest Arboretums.
Bill enjoyed a wide variety of musical styles, rock, jazz and blues primarily. Most of all he loved being a drummer, from elementary school days, to the College of Wooster Pipe Band, several community bands, and most recently with the Salty Roads Band of Cleveland, OH. One of his main delights was reconnecting with the Rainbow Press as they released their third album, Love Is The Truth.
He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Please join us on December 4 to remember and honor the love of my life, Bill Yergin.
