GORDON YACH Gordon F. Yach, 80, of both Las Vegas and Eagle Valley, passed away Wednesday, September 26, 2018. He was born August 28, 1938 to C. E. "Doc" and Elizabeth "Lily" Sherbert Yach in Steven Point, Wisc. He was a 60-year resident of Las Vegas. Gordon served in the U.S. Air Force and attended the University of Wisconsin. He served 26 years as a LVMPD police officer, retiring as the Director of Detention Services. Gordon enjoyed, among other things: music, playing his guitar (self-taught), riding and raising their Arabian horses, telling stories about the old Las Vegas to friends and family (which led to authoring a book), and of course, keeping up with his Green Bay Packers every year. He was preceded in death by son, Mitchell; brother, David; and both parents. He is survived by his wife Joyce; sister, Suzanne Kalepp (WI); and four of five children, sons, Mark Yach (of Eagle Valley), Rick (Teri) Yach, Dr. Christopher (Terri Fujikawa) Yach, and daughter Tisha De Leon, all of Las Vegas; grandchildren, Cole, Chandler, Sofia, Ryann, Dino, Dylan and Seth; two great-grandchildren, Silver and Link, all of Las Vegas. Gordon, along with his sense of humor, will be deeply missed. A celebration of life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. (Call 702-378-2121 for details).
