It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to David J. Yockel. He left us suddenly on Thursday, Aug 29 at age 54. David was predeceased by his mother Libby Yockel and mother-in-law Patricia Hammele, beloved husband of Anne, loving father of Elizabeth, Mary Rose and Courtney, son of David John Yockel, brother of Lisa Yockel and Carolyn Robbins (Paul), son-in-law of Joseph Hammele, brother-in-law of Mary Hammele (Kevin), Margaret Ruehle (Wally), and Ed Hammele (Dana) and many nieces and nephews.
Dave was full of love and generously shared it with everyone he met. He found joy in spending time with family, friends, and doing home improvement projects. He was a proud graduate of Hamilton College. He worked for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for over 30 years and thoughtfully brought many projects to fruition. Dave always had a positive and grateful outlook and was able to connect with everyone in a loving and meaningful way and we are devastated by this great loss.
