Junior went on to be with the Lord on October 21. He was a wonderful husband, father, and Paw Paw. He loved his children. That's all he ever talked about, them playing ball and how much he loved them. He was married to his wife Sandra Ledbetter Yow for 62 years. Junior loved fishing and watching ball games. He was an electrician for 50 years and worked for Stanly County Waste part-time for 7 years. Junior loved to talk to people and hardly ever met a stranger. He will be missed, but he was a man who loved and served the Lord and is now with his Lord and Savior.
