Joshua Clay Yoder
Joshua Clay Yoder, age 22, of Mont Ida, Kansas, passed away on Sunday, June 11, 2017.

He was born August 19, 1994, in Ottawa, Kansas, the son of Melvin Ray and Helen Rebecca (McDaniel) Yoder. He graduated from Anderson County High School with the Class of 2012. Clay was a sub-contractor for QSI.

Clay loved life and was an avid hunter and fisherman, and never missed a weekend at Piqua teaching all the ladies to dance. He enjoyed going pig hunting and spoonbill fishing with his dad. There was never a quiet moment around the house, playing musical instruments or listening to music. 

He made sure people around him were having fun and always had a smile on his face. Clay especially enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Elaine Mitchell and grandfather, Ira Yoder; three uncles, Leon, Larry, and Joe Yoder; two cousins, Jonathan Schmucker and David Troyer.

Clay is survived by his parents, Ray and Becky Yoder, of the home; one brother, Cameron Williams and partner Christine Winnikow of Garnett, Kansas; one sister, Ida Yoder and partner Dimitri McClelland of Garnett, Kansas; one sister-in-law, Sara Williams of Rantoul, Kansas; two nephews, Braxton Williams and Micah Horn; cousins and best friends, Milton Yoder, Sam Yoder, and Trent McDaniel; many other cousins, and close family members.
