David “Dave” Lee Yargo Sr. of Austintown, passed away on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at 2:19 p.m. in Mercy Health - St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital after a long battle with liver disease. Even while fighting this battle, Dave was always positive and kept everyone smiling throughout his illness. He was 71 years old.

Dave was born in Youngstown, on November 16, 1950, the son of the late Joseph and Mary Grannie Yargo. He graduated from Poland Seminary High School in 1969. Mr. Yargo worked as an assembler at General Motors for 28 years until his retirement in 2008. 

Dave enjoyed spending his time outdoors, whether he was fishing, boating, riding his motorcycle, or visiting national parks. He loved watching his favorite football teams, the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Cincinnati Bengals. His greatest moments were those spent with his wife, family, and friends, making memories that they will now cherish.

He is survived by his 2 children, David Lee (Cassandra) Yargo Jr. of Girard, and Diane L. (Jim) Marshall of Austintown; 2 sisters, Carol (Gavino) Catauro of Austintown, and Debbie (Joe) Lavazarre of North Jackson; 7 grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews who also loved him dearly.
