Keith A. Yespy, 43, of Hummelstown, passed away Sunday, August 22, 2010. He was born in Hershey on January 8, 1967.
Keith was the owner of K & R Lawn & Garden Repair, and a partner in J & H Exxon both of Hummelstown. He had worked for Weaver’s Lawn & Garden, Palmyra; Bomberger’s Lawn & Garden, Lititz, and Brown’s Mower Service, Mt. Aetna. He was a 1985 graduate of Dauphin County Vocational Technical School in the Ornamental Horticulture Program. A big softball enthusiast, Keith sponsored the K&R Lawn & Garden team of the HBSA. He was an avid animal lover; enjoyed anything relating to John Deere tractors and Kenworth tractor trailers; and was a fan of NASCAR, and horror films.
Keith is survived by his wife of 19 years, Robin A. Hyde Yespy whom he married on November 9, 1990; twin daughters, Marlena C. Yespy and Maribeth L. Yespy both at home; and his mother Rosalba Stendari Jacobs of Hershey.
A celebration of Keith’s life will be held on Thursday, August 26, 2010, at 7:30 PM in the Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, with The Rev. Dr. Michael Stine officiating. Visitation will be held Thursday from 6:30 PM until time of the service.
Because Keith loved wearing t-shirts and jeans, definitely not a “suit man”, the family requests that those in attendance wear softball related, John Deere related or Phillies attire.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be given in memory of Keith for a college fund for his daughters payable to Robin A. Yespy, c/o Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, PA 17036.
