Paul Brian Yeadon, 69, passed away Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018 in Marinette, after a brief fight with cancer.
Born Saturday, July 9,1949 in Iron Mountain, Mi., to the late Clyde Yeadon and Dorothy Senecal, he was raised in Iron Mountain and traveled during his young adult years. He worked in many jobs, including taxi driver, bus driver and at a small electronics repair business.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing, working on cars and American History. In his last years, he enjoyed visits from family and best friend Randy.
