Paul Wayne Yates, 69, of Indian Trail, NC, went to be with his Savior Sept 10, 2021.
When He called your name you were ready to go. Even though there was still so much to do, it wasn’t as important as going home because things on earth were through. You leave a legacy rich with lives you’ve touched along the way through family and friends who loved you. You have always been our rock, protector and helping hand. You were selfless in all you did for those you love. Dedicated husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. There was no one you could count on more. You will be greatly missed.
