John Anthony Yohe Sr.,

Age 84, passed away peacefully in his Verona home, March 30, 2023, with daughter and caretaker Gina at his side.   He was born in Pittsburgh on February 15 to Ralph and Jane (Lemme) Yohe.  He attended Westinghouse High School where he met the love of his life Jeanne (Seminora).  John was Sonny to his brothers and sisters, Dad or Pops to his children, Pappy or Poppy to his grandchildren but he was most pleased to be known as loving and dedicated husband to Jeanne for 62 years.  All that have met John knew him to have a zest for life that made spending time with him entertaining and memorable.  He was at his best when he was with family and cherished friends, enjoying some fine food, sharing a glass or two of wine, and telling jokes and stories.  In his prime, his “performances” had all in the room laughing to the point of crying. John was first and foremost a family man, willing do anything necessary to provide his wife and children everything they needed and many of the things they wanted.  He was a loving father to Joe (Sharon) Yohe of Austin, TX, John Jr. (Regina) of Abington, PA and Gina Yohe of Verona.  He led by example, showing them the value of honesty, loyalty, concern for his fellow man , all while working hard to play hard. One of his passions in life was being grandfather to Angie (Brad) Weyant of Austin, Chris (Christa) Yohe of Denver, CO, Hannah Yohe of Kennett Square, PA and Grace Yohe of Abington.  John recently became great grandfather to Luke of Denver and AJ of Austin.  He will be deeply missed by the many who spent lively days and evening is his company, a list too long to publish here.  John is survived by his brother Richard, and many nieces and nephews.  In addition to his parents, John was predeceased by wife Jeanne, and the following brothers and sisters: Ralph Jr, Mary Jane Anderson, Lucille, Sister Pearl, Geraldine and Ronald. John’s family and friends are welcome to join the celebration of a memorial Mass, Wednesday, April 5, 2023, 1 p.m. at Holy Family parish, St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, 825 2nd Street Verona, PA 15147.
