Paul Brian Yeadon passed away on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, in Marinette, Wis., after a brief fight with cancer.   He was born Saturday, July 9, 1949, in Iron Mountain, Mich., to the late Clyde Yeadon and Dorothy Senecal.  
    Paul was raised in Iron Mountain, and spent time traveling during his young adult years. His interests included hunting, fishing, working on cars, and American History. He worked in many different fields including taxi driver, bus driver, and a small electronics repairs business. He had a dry sense of humor that made everyone laugh. He had  strong personality and a deep faith in God that carried him through many trials.  Paul’s creative mind likely came from his father, Clyde, who introduced the original idea of Paul Bunyan in the Iron Mountain Daily News newspaper many years ago. In his last years, he enjoyed visits from family and best friend Randy. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.
    Paul is survived by his daughter and son-in-law: Shelly and John Whitaker of Ishpeming, Mich., grandchildren: Hannah, Isaiah, Rebekah and Benaiah Paul Whitaker; sisters: Dee Dee Amen of Kingsford, Mich., Rachel Bazile of Elk Rapids, Mich., Mary Ellen Freed of Racine, Wis., and Georgene Senecal of Quinnesec, Mich.; also by his ex-wife, JoEllen Yeadon; step-children: Steven and Christine Schwechel; grandchildren: Travis, Tayler, and Tieley Schwechel; and other relatives and friends. Paul is preceded in death by his brother, Jimmy Senecal.
