Gary Dean Yount- My Poppop. He was much more than a grandfather to me, he was my father, my best friend, my person, my mentor, my inspiration and the love of my life. From the day I was born he took me in and took care of me until his very last day. He is one of a kind, there are no words to describe the kind of wonderful sweet man he was. The most hardworking, respectable, stubborn, giving person I have ever known. He never wanted to burden anyone with anything, but he would be the first person to help you if you needed it. He encouraged me and always supported me in anything I wanted to do. He always told me there was nothing I couldn't do, he would do anything to help me follow my dreams including supporting my move half way across to the country to Chicago even if it meant being away from him. There was not a day we didn't speak, argue about politics or talk about our dogs. He loved me even though I was a millennial or as he called me an onion. He lit up every room he walked into, and there wasn't a time he wasn't cracking jokes or being sarcastic. I'm going to miss the talks and debates about life that we had. He taught me so many things, my love for animals, how important it was to be an honest person, and to only focus on the important things in life. Twenty six years wasn't nearly enough time with him, not that any amount of time would be. I'm going to miss my best friend more than anything in the world and the only thing that will get me by is knowing his love for me is always here. I love you poppop.

A Special Friend Of Poppop

April 22, 2019

I've spent the past week trying to figure out the right words to describe my Poppop and the relationship we had. There is nothing I could say right now to explain how much h means to me. When my grandma and I were going through his keepsakes I found a Father's Day card his son Ron gave him over 25 years ago and this quote from the card explains him perfectly.
" If there's someone you can turn to when you need a helping hand, if there's someone you can count on to advise and understand, if there's someone you can laugh with, someone kind, who's smiling face convinces you that no one could ever take his place then there's someone you'll remember in a warm and loving way with a wish for lots of happiness on his very special day".

I've always loved Gary like a brother. When my brother and I lived with Uncle Doc and Aunt Jeanne, Aunt Jeanne said girls don't play with boys and I would have to sit in the house while the boys went to the swamp to catch dragonflies. Gary saw how sad that made me so he brought me back a dragonfly. An act of kindness I will never forget, and only one of many acts of kindness while I was there. I just know there is a special place in Heaven for him. I can still feel little me's pure joy 63 years later when I think of what he did for me.

Although I didn't know Gary, since we're miles apart, I'm sending heartfelt sympathy to Cathy & family. Having been widowed myself at an earlier age, which was also unexpected, hang onto your wonderful memories, Cathy, & allow family & friends to provide comfort during this challenging time. May peace & love surround you ....many blessings, cousin Phyllis 'Tarasi' Recchiuti

Having known Gary for more than 20 years through business, it was hard not to like Gary. Always one with a quick wit and ready to share a story or joke. I learned a lot from him and respected him immensely. Will really miss him, but appreciate the the fact that I got a chance to meet and know him. Good by old friend and condolences to the entire Yount family

This was one of our great trips to Hard Rock Casino in Miami and visited Miami Dolphins Stadium. We had such a nice time.

It's hard to say goodbye to such a loyal and long time friend.
Gary and I have been working together in the machine tool industry for close to 3 decades.
I've never trusted anyone in the business more than him. And I was always able to call and talk about anything.....Life, business, family...….you name it!
I will miss him.
My prayers and condolences are with Cathy and the family.

Gary was like a grandfather too me. I spent many of hours at his shop with my father, working on machinery that he was selling, cleaning, prepping for shipping, and testing the machine to make sure everything was correct. Spent time at his home for family parties and playing with his dogs and grandkids. I also got to know his wife Cathy, she was like a grandma too me, along with his sons Ron and Jeremy that I worked for for a summer. This family has been a true blessing to me through my childhood and I learned a lot from Gary spending time with him with my dad.

We took a few trips with him, my father and I, that was a lot of fun as well. This man was by far a true mentor too me. He will surely be missed by not only me, but by my family as well. He was a good friend too my father, mother, my brother, and myself.

Gary, may you rest in peace and look down upon us every chance you get from above. Take care good friend. Love you.
