Age 95. Beloved husband of the late Genevieve  (Dreveniak); father of Naomi and the late Miriam Yeskey; brother of the late Lois (Yeskey) Campbell, John, Lawrence, Gilbert, Robert and Agnes (Yeskey) Blaha. Paul was a Navy veteran serving in both WWII and the Korean War. His most significant duty assignment was Navy Radio Facilities in Yokosuka, Japan. Paul spent his entire career working for Allegheny Drop Forge Company on the North Side. He was Vice President and part owner of this steel forging company. He worked his way up after high schoolas an office clerk. Paul was a person of style and grace.His favorite fashion accessory was wearing argyle socks no matter the season. He will always be warmly rememberedfor his brightly colored slacks  and plaid suit jackets! Paul had many friends and family who loved him dearly for his integrity, direct nature, and quirky sense of humor! He was instrumental  in maintaining close relationships with his brothers, sister, nieces, nephews and cousins. He believed  in the importance of family and was the "glue"  that kept the Yeskey family  close!! Paul was a long time supporter of the Tamburitzans during and after his daughter performed with them. As a retiree, Paul  and his beautiful wife, Genny and brother, Larry would travel across many states to see the Tamburitzans perform. The groups members would announce "The Yeskeys are here!!" and this would warm thier hearts!!! Paul was a strong and loving person  who will be dearly missed.
