Glenn Yoder

Glenn A. Yoder, 66, passed away Jan. 26, 2018. He was born Feb. 22, 1951, to Fred and Colleen (Regier) Yoder in Newton, Kansas.

Glenn loved to be outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman, along with being a jack of all trades. He was involved with cattle production throughout his life, from being a cattle buyer to working on a farm/ranch, then to owning his own feed store for a time. He would also always have a few head around the farm to keep him occupied.

Glenn also had another passion in his life and that was helping his community by being a volunteer firefighter for the Peabody Volunteer Fire Department for more than 20 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Fred and Colleen Yoder.

He is survived by his wife Koni; sisters, Tammie Suffield and husband, Butch, of Peabody, and Teresa Maples of Valley Center; sons, Jeremy Yoder and wife, Bobbi, of Elgin, Oklahoma, and Eric Yoder and wife, Kim, of Great Bend, Kansas; stepdaughters Heather LaRue and husband, Mike, of El Dorado, Kansas, and Ashley Miller of Peabody, Kansas; and eight grandchildren and numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Graveside services will be 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018, at Prairie Lawn Cemetery, Peabody, Kansas. In lieu of flowers, all memorials will be given to Peabody Fire Department to upgrade equipment.
