Deb Yednak - February 28th, 2016
I went to 11th Ward school with "Joe" - we were Christy Parkers and he was a kind and most
gentle spirited guy.  I often think about the class when we were all together through grade school.  In fact I have the picture posted in the grade school section of this site.  He was a great  guy!
