Obituary for Weldon Kyle "Buddy" Yielding

National Guardsman Private Weldon “Buddy” Yielding, age 92, of Rogers passed from this life during the early morning hours of Saturday, November 10, 2018 at a local nursing home. Weldon was born on the 16th day of March 1926 in Sparta, Texas to parents Roy and Euda (Powell) Yielding.

In his earlier years Weldon had enlisted into the Army National Guard. On May 29, 1948 he married Ruth Karl in Belton. From this point on Weldon and Ruth would spend their time side by side raising a family that would eventually include 4 daughters and 1 son. Weldon was a loving husband and a wonderful father to his children. He had a giving soul and would provide to those in need unselfishly. He could be seen mowing the yards of the local residents in Rogers and you never would catch him without his “box of snuff” in his pocket. He was a member of the Assembly of God Church in Belton where he taught Sunday school and he had been a resident of Rogers since 1987.

Weldon is preceded in death by his parents Roy and Euda as well as 1 daughter Kathey Yielding, 2 brothers Melvin and Jim Yielding and 1 sister Mary Lauren.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife Ruth of Temple, son Steve Yielding of Kansas and daughters Brenda Klecka of Cameron, Rita Buster of Rogers, and Rhonda Myres of Belton. He also leaves behind 2 brothers J.W. Yielding of Cameron, Bill Yielding of Dallas and 1 sister Joyce Keil of Wyoming. Weldon will also be very missed by his 9 grandchildren Lisa Wilkins, Amy Abila, Amber Joslin, Jennifer Mitchell, Christy Chaney, Chasity Rogers as well as Justin, Jason and Madison Anastasiades; 13 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren are also surviving.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 16, 2018 at 10:30 AM at the Crossroads Church in Belton with Pastor Matt Thrasher and Pastor Gretchan Kendall officiating.

Hewett-Arney Funeral Home of Temple is entrusted with the arrangements.
