Michael C. Yates

November 20, 1973 — November 17, 2022

AMELIA - Michael C. Yates, age 48, passed away unexpectedly on November 17, 2022. He was born on November 20, 1973, to Thresa Marlene Yates (nee Challis) and the late James L. Yates. Michael was the beloved husband of Lee Ann Yates (nee Holcombe); devoted father of Wade Yates and Hayden Yates; a loving father figure to Nate Smith and Cooper Smith; and dear brother of John (Tamara) Yates and Jim (Pamela) Yates. 

Michael was a bright light, kind and giving to all and loved adventure. He enjoyed being outdoors and was constantly in the midst of woodworking and building something new. He loved skiing and played soccer and baseball in his youth. Michael's passion in more recent years was being with his family, creating a fun and happy home for them to share. He was a loving husband to his wife and partner of five years and a proud father to his boys. He worked for over 25 years installing sprinkler and lighting systems, and many loyal customers there regarded him as a friend. His infectious joy and bright smile will be deeply missed by all who knew him. 

Friends and family may visit from 10AM until 11AM with funeral service to follow on Friday, November 25, 2022 at Moore Family Funeral Homes - 225 Spring Street, Batavia, Ohio 45103. Burial will take place at Pierce Township Cemetery at a later date.
