William Joseph Yoho

July 24, 1943 - September 27, 2020

William Joseph Yoho, age 77, passed away at home, on September 27, 2020 after a long battle with cancer with his beloved wife, Jackie of 32 years and family by his side.

Bill was born in Cambridge, Ohio on July 24, 1943 to Aretus Grant and Mary Martha Yoho.  He was the eldest of three siblings.  He served in the U.S. Army, graduated from Franklin University, and retired from M/I homes as a sales executive.

Bill was a loving husband, father, brother, son, grandfather, and uncle.  He was the loudest person in the room with a deep voice, a booming laugh, and an unforgettable sense of humor.  He was a compassionate and kind soul, building long-term connections with coworkers, family, and friends. Bill was an avid fan of Cleveland and OSU sports.  He and Jackie enjoyed traveling with friends and spending time with their extended and merged families.

The family is deeply appreciative for the care that Bill received from Mt. Carmel hospice nurses.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, Aretus Grant & Mary Martha Yoho; in-laws, Richard and Dolores MacDonald; beloved Brother, Timothy Yoho; and brother In-Law, David MacDonald.

He is survived by wife, Jackie (MacDonald) Yoho; son, Christopher Yoho; grandchildren, Madeline & William Yoho, New Albany Ohio; stepdaughter, Angela (Pierre) Rochat, grandchildren, Adriana & Luc Rochat, Los Angeles, CA & Durango, CO; sister, Mary Margaret (Ed) Moore, Cambridge, OH; sister-in-law, Cindy (Jim) Reed, Lori (Timothy deceased) Yoho; brother-in-law, Richard (Debbie) MacDonald, Stephen (Cindy) MacDonald, Chris (Kelly) MacDonald, Tony (Sue) MacDonald; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.


The family will hold a private gathering in celebration of Bill’s life.

With a heavy heart, I would like to send my condolences to Jackie and Bills family. Without a doubt, he is one of my favorite co-workers I had while at MI and someone I'll never forget. He surely touched many lives along his journey and never had anything bad to say! I appreciate him touching my life and will never forget that! God Bless! Tony Rood
