Rev. Yount died Thursday, Aug. 10, 2006, at Deatur General Hospital. He was born May 6, 1917, in Wauseon, Ohio to Charles Yount and Verda Otto Yount. He grew up in Indiana and Pennsylvania. He attended Anderson College in Indiana where he met his wife, Leetus Williams, to whom he was married for 63 years until her death in 2005. He was called to the ministry, together with Leetus, and pastored churches in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Alabama, West Virginia, Texas, Georgia, Florida and Mississippi. Their retirement years were spent serving as interim pastors throughout the Southeast. They enjoyed the challenge of starting many small churches during this time. They also taught school for over 25 years.
