He is survived by his beloved wife, Debra Gunter Yon; mother, Peggy Davis Yon of New Holland, SC; daughter, Shelly Yon of Graniteville, SC; son, Joshua (Samantha) Yon and granddaughter, Emmy Yon of Beech Island, SC; brother, Earl Stanley (Joyce) Yon and sister, Ann Yon (Rick) Stoker of New Holland, SC; father-in-law, Rev.

Mark was born and lived his entire life in Aiken County, SC and was a loving father, son, brother, grandfather, and uncle. He was an employee at AGY for over 30 years and was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Graniteville, SC. Mark was not a complicated man and enjoyed the simple things in life, such as watching his Soaps, playing with his grandbaby, and taking care of his family and friends. As those close to him know, he was always calling to check up on the people he cared about whether they were family, widows or elderly in the church, or friends. He truly knew what it meant to show the love of God to others. Mark touched so many lives with his loyalty, love, and caring spirit and he will be missed by so many people.
A memorial service honoring his life will be held on Saturday December 11, 2021 at 11am at Calvary Baptist Church in Graniteville with Pastor George Johnson officiating.
