Offer Condolence for the family of Gregory YostPrint Obituary & Condolences
Greg, You will be missed!
Greg will be missed by his colleagues and friends. I was fortunate to serve with him in planning for two “Youth On Board” events. He was a zealous supporter of youth who served as voting members of community committees and boards. He even instructed attendees of the Buckeye Leadership Workshop on dance movements and facial gyrations for a dance presentation.
Greg was at peace with his fate much more than I was, as I still can not overcome the feelings of injustice inherent in his passing. Why should such a good person die so young when there are so many horrible people who will continue to live for decades? This is a mystery of life, and one that I contemplate with Greg as an example of a soul who deserved to live, love, and learn much more than his mortal body allowed. My condolences to his family and friends.

Prayers of comfort for the family of Greg. He was an awesome colleague and I will always fondly remember him. God Bless!
I enjoyed Greg’s quiet positive presence when he was in the room. He was a great example to all 4-H Educators of how to believe in the power of youth and to include them in the decision making process. He will be missed. Steve
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Greg was always such a positive thoughtful person. His passion for youth was inspiring. He truly believed in what he did and he touched many lives. He will be missed.
Greg will be dearly missed, and I cannot begin to explain the ways that he has touched the lives of the people he has worked with in Extension! I will miss him dearly.
Dear Yost Family and Friends. Please accept our deepest sympathies, prayers and peace for the loss of a great person. I knew Greg closely over the years in 4-H. He was my mentor as I moved to OSU. We spoke of many positive things throughout the years. I know he was so proud of his family and loved you all greatly. Greg will be greatly missed by family, friends, colleagues and youngsters throughout Ohio. God bless and we wish you peace during these hard times. The Crawford Family
I was so sorry to read of Greg’s passing. I had been praying for him and your family since he told me about his illness last spring. I will continue to remember you in my prayers. With sympathy, Joyce Shriner 4-H Educator/CED Hocking County, OH
Erika – I was so shocked and saddened to hear the news today. I have great memories of Greg and Inner City Outings back in the 80s! I’m so sorry for your loss and will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.
Your legacy will live on forever in the lives of those who you served through your great programs.
Greg was an amazing person that I had the privilege to work with, I am sorry for your loss. I know he will be missed by many

Dear Yost family: My deepest sympathy to you all. Greg was a wonderful colleague and his care and passion for his work was ever present in the way he served others. May his memory be present as you move forward.
I knew Greg from the time I spent working for OSU at 4-H Camp Palmer. When interacting with Greg I grew in knowledge and in compassion. He will be missed.
I did not know Greg well, but appreciated the enthusiasm he brought as a fellow 4-H professional. I will not forget Greg taking an interest in my background and learning more about me when I started in Extension in 2010. May he rest in peace and our prayers are with you all.
My deepest condolences to the Yost family. In the short time that I have know Greg, he was very friendly and warm. May God comfort and keep you in this time and in the future. God Bless
To Greg’s family: What a great person you had in your life. In Extension he was always willing to lend a hand and always had a smile on his face. May God bless you now and always.
My prayers of comfort go out to your family during this difficult time!
I am so sorry to hear of Greg’s passing. He will certainly be missed by his friends and peers in OSU Extension. His zest for life and passion for youth was so evident in his work.
