Outside of work, the Avon resident enjoys spending time with his two children and long-time girlfriend, and Spartan Racing.

This act of courage has changed my life and has challenged me to join the fight against cancer.” Yeakey’s passions are volunteering with youth, spending time with his wife and three children, cooking/gardening and cutting hair.
