Of all the Yeakley boys, I think Uncle Don was the best looking. He had sort of the James Dean look.
He was born in Olney, Texas on June 12, 1915 and died at the age of 79 on April 18, 1995.
He married Vivian Mae Crawford when they were both 19 and had a long, successful marriage. They had two children. My cousin Don and I used to get together when he came to California on business.
My best memory of Uncle Don was when he decided to be our getaway driver after my first marriage. I still remember him speeding through the streets of Covina, California while our friend tried to keep up with him. They were no match for him.
Aunt Vivian outlived him only four years.
