Yost PhotoPhilip A. Yost, Sr., of Brookville passed away at Jefferson Manor on January 18, 2017 after a period of declining health. He was 86 years of age.

Born on July 25, 1930 in Racine, Wisconsin, he was the son of the late Joseph and Elizabeth (Mihalic) Yost.

He then served in the United States Naval Reserves for 10 additional years.

On May 3, 1963, he married the former Mildred Harriff, who survives. He enjoyed anything “mechanical,” cars, mowers, whatever. He loved taking things apart and putting them back together. His sons share that same love.

Yost, both of Brookville; his daughters, Melody Schultz, of DuBois, and Elizabeth Conley, of Hollywood, Maryland; two grandchildren, Kitiara Yale and Cheyenne Conley; his brother, Daniel Yost, of Racine, Wisconsin; and several nieces and nephews.
