Lovingly submitted by sister Wileen Yancey Dear
James, my brother, passed away at my home on August 22, 2017 at 10:30 am while the hospice nurse was in his attendance. He had fought Pancreatic cancer for almost 3 years with Met to his liver until chemo was no longer effective and he developed a back pain that the VA was unable to diagnose and treat but was given pain medication.
He had served in various branches of the military as well as in the reserves…and last worked at the FAA before becoming ill. He will be greatly missed.
James Robert Yancey is to be buried on Thursday September 6 at 1pm with Honors at the Quantico National Military cemetery in Virginia.
