In celebration of his life, we remember him as a highly respected and accomplished businessman in the Wooster community. A graduate of Ashland College, Mr. Yost joined his father in the R.C. Yost Agency. Later forming his own business, the Homer Yost Agency, he spent 59 years building it through his belief in honesty, integrity and his dedication to personal service. The insurance and accounting firm has been recognized many times by the companies it represents. At 80 years of age, he still was active in the daily functions of the company until his recent illness. 
Mr. Yost had a love and a gift for music. From marching in the Wooster High School Band to establishing his own jazz band that played throughout the state in the 1940s and early '50s, and finally to sharing his talent and his musical stories with his grandchildren. He will be remembered as a master of the clarinet and saxophone. He was an avid reader. He loved gardening and spending time on his farm where he and his wife raised miniature horses and donkeys. He had a great appreciation for nature. He loved his dedicated canine companion, Punkin, an English bulldog. 
Although he will be sadly missed by family, friends and associates, he leaves a legacy of accomplishments and inspiration for those of us who will follow in his footsteps. The business will be carried on through the watchful guidance of his daughter, Anne. That is the way he would want it to be. 
Finally, his first love was his family. He married his wife, Marjorie in 1955. They established a home filled with nurturing love in which they raised three children; Sharon Wandall, a teacher of gifted and talented children for the Cloverleaf Local School District, Anne Wolf, who joined him in the family business in 1981, and Fred Yost, a landscape consultant and horseman. He has five grandsons who were the sparkle in his eye in his later years, Jeremy Wandall, Andy and Timmy Wolf, and Tyler and Jakob Yost.
