With a heavy heart, the family of Guy David Yollin announces his passing on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. Guy will be greatly missed by his wife Sandy, mother-in-law Diane Eatherly, and children: Bethany (and her husband Joseph), Charles (and his girlfriend Lisa), and Paul (and his wife Julia). Guy is also survived by his sisters: Julie Berk (and her husband Louis, and sons Maurice/Talia and Aaron/Saeme), Jennifer Yollin, and much more extended family. He will also be missed by his beloved dogs: Major Buford C. Tubby and Tika, along with cats: Skagit and Sebastian.
Guy was born in Abington, PA on April 26, 1962 to Hubert Yollin and Mary Lee Britt. He attended Drexel University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Later, he attended Oregon Health and Science University where he received his Master of Science in Computational Finance. Guy followed his passion through a career consulting in analytics and software development. Guy and Sandy were married on May 5, 1990. Together they spent the next 31 years nurturing and growing their beautiful family. For nearly a decade they raised dogs for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Guy was a father-figure and mentor to many, he took pride in helping others grow. As a manager and professor, Guy’s mission was to uplift and empower those around him, a mission that spilled over into his personal life. Guy was often the first person many would seek out for advice and solutions to problems life had to give. As a husband and father, his love and support was unconditional. Guy opened his home and shared his table with those in need of love and support; the Yollin house was everyone’s home.
As a lifelong student, he had a number of hobbies: cooking, baking bread, growing vegetables, and most importantly, learning and growing himself. Guy’s love of the outdoors took his family on many adventures across the Pacific Northwest. His idea of a perfect vacation was loading up the car and driving to a quiet campground or hiking in a serene forest with the company of his family. He loved Sunday mornings: football games, family brunch, naps, a warm mug of coffee and a dog in his lap. Above all else, Guy cherished quality time with his family.
