George Frank Yeager

January 31, 1957 — June 18, 2021

Farmington – George Frank Yeager, age 64, passed from this World on June 18, 2021 due to a motorcycle accident which occurred in Durango, Colorado.

George was born on January 31, 1957 in Denver, Colorado to William George Yeager and Jean (Yeager) Cox-Lovell.  George was previously married to Debra Jo Hartley Horton.  They had two sons, William George Yeager, II “Willy” and Daniel Thomas Yeager “Danny.”  George’s hobbies were camping, hiking, hunting, canoeing, dancing and cooking which included cooking for large crowds, parties and gatherings.  His prized green chili beef jerky will especially be missed.  George was an inventor and loved to take things apart and put them back together, just to see how they worked.

George attended school in Grants, New Mexico, Tucumcari, New Mexico and Taos, New Mexico.  He served two years in the United States Navy.

George’s career was building small gas compressors, which he invented, for his own business, Poquito Compression, located in Aztec, New Mexico.

His dancing prowess and delight cannot be exaggerated.  He would gleefully repeat dancing 12 days in a row, with zest.  He enjoyed dancing on the finest floors to parking lots, dirt, whenever, however and as often as possible.  Ever expanding his abilities, he enjoyed taking and teaching dancing lessons.  He quickly flowed with the changing tunes from waltz, polka, two-step to tango.  His mother taught him “The Chicken Foot” to prepare him to compete in all the Senior Olympics dance categories.  A stack of blue ribbons were secured.  He called himself rightfully “The Dancing Machine.”

George was preceded in death by his father, William George Yeager, his grandfather George Frank Yeager, and his grandmother Ernestine Bernadella Yeager.  Surviving him are his mother. Jean, his sister, Melanie and his two sons William and Daniel.
