Obituary

DATELINE:  KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA
John Floyd Yarbro

John Floyd Yarbro, Sr was born on May 29, 1933 and went to be with his Lord on November 30, 2022. John was a lifelong resident of Cleveland County and was preceded in death by an infant son, his parents John E. and Sarah Vela Herndon Yarbro, and his siblings Carrie Patterson, Julia Huffstetler, Ed Yarbro, George Yarbro, and Ava Sipes.
John was an active member of Boyce Memorial ARP Church where he served as Deacon and Elder.  In his later years, he attended First Baptist Church, but he returned to his home church before his death.
John was a Korean War veteran. He retired from Martin Marietta Aggregates.  Although he was a master mechanic, this was not his primary focus.  He was a faithful, devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was fondly known as “Big John” or “Papaw John” who enjoyed having his family for meals.

Survivors are his wife of 65 years Ruth Wilson Yarbro; his son John Yarbro, Jr. and wife Regina; his daughters Jill Hinson and husband Mike; and Julie Rikard and husband Quinton; his brother William Andrew Yarbro; six grandchildren: Jessica Yarbro (Kris Wold), John Michael Hinson (Tayah), Mitchell Hinson (Erin), Emily Yarbro, Wilson Rikard (Samantha), and Jonathan Rikard; and great granddaughter Reagan Hinson.

A family burial will take place at Kadesh United Methodist Church Cemetery on Thursday, December 8 at 11:00.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at Boyce Memorial ARP Church with Dr. Robert Patrick and Dr. John Sloan officiating.
