Mass of Christian Burial Tuesday November 22, 2016 at 11am at St. Joseph's Church. Wayland / Dansville – Francis V. Yohon, 75 years of age, passed away early Monday morning November 14, 2016 at his home. Frank was born July 17, 1941 in Wayland, the son of Frank and Loretta (Quanz) Yohon. He grew up in the Wayland/Dansville areas and has remained a resident ever since. On February 7th, 1970, Frank and Linda Apel were married and together have celebrated over 46 years of marriage. His employment career was entirely spent as a potato farmer on the family farm, Frank Yohon Farms of Wayland. After retiring from farming, Frank was employed by Crop Production Services in Cohocton. Frank loved this job as he was able to stay in contact with all the farmers by delivering CPS product. Frank was a faithful communicant of St. Joseph’s Church throughout the years and when Bingo was played at St. Joseph’s School years ago, he could be counted on to help. He loved playing cards, and was very good at playing pitch and other card games. Travelling to Florida was also a great joy for Frank. Frank was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Loretta Yohon; and a brother, Bernard Yohon. He is survived by the two great loves of his life: his wife Linda of Wayland and his daughter Lisa Yohon (Gregg Piechota) of Allegany; his brothers, Edward (Emma) Yohon of Lexington, KY and Norman (Janice) Yohon of Wayland; his sister-in-law Kathleen Yohon of Bath; along with several nieces and nephews. Frank’s family and friends are invited to call Wednesday from 4-7 pm at the St. George-Stanton Funeral Home, 109 West Naples St., Wayland. A family prayer service will be offered at 10:15 Tuesday at the funeral home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Frank Tuesday at 11am at St. Joseph’s Church, 206 Fremont St., Wayland. Committal prayers and internment will take place immediately following at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Wayland. Memorial contributions in Francis “Frank” V. Yohon’s memory may be made to the Vincent House, 310 Second Ave., Wayland, NY 14572
