Connie, Sandy, Copper and Cam: Our condolences to all of you. Bob was a civic minded gentleman, who always spoke sincerely and succinctly. Our community benefited from Bob’s generous assistance and foresight. Sincerely, Thomas Hoegen
Connie, Cam, And Copper; The nicest, most generous, devoted and by far the classiest, best dressed man I have ever known. Mr. Yaw was the happiest, proudest most devoted father and husband; I am proud to say I knew him, I will pray for him and only hope I get to see him again in heaven.
Dear Mrs. Yaw & Family, I was blessed to get to know Mr. as well as Mrs. Yaw when I was employed by the Cedar Rapids Country Club. I am deeply saddened by our loss. Although I am no longer at the CRCC, I was just thinking of Mr. Yaw the other day as I remembered he has a birthday around Christmas. Mr. Yaw was very friendly, outgoing, and compassionate as I'm sure you all know. Our favorite subjects to talk about were Mrs. Yaw and his family. We talked about a lot, but our conversations always seemed to lead back to his family. A subject I never minded talking about. There are a tremendous amount of memories and stories that I have; however, what I want you to know most is that I am a better person for getting the many opportunities to sit and talk with Mr. Yaw. I will never forget the advice, the lessons, and the way that Mr. Yaw demonstrated to me how we should all live our lives. I am out of town this week, but I do want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. As Mr. Yaw would always say, "God Bless You". Tracy Pridie
Connie and Family, We were deeply saddened to read of your loss of such a loved one. The community will miss such a kind, loving gentleman. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your fine family.

Bob was a good friend and mentor. His advice and encouragement during the church annual budget fund drive was a big help to me. My favoriate memories were the several lunch meetings in Bob's downtown office.
Mrs. Yaw, Copper and Cam, I am so sorry for your loss. Did not learn of Mr. Yaw's passing until this evening. This has been a hard year for Copper and Cam. A special hello to both of you. Life is fleeting. Love is forever.

Boppa was another 'dad' for me personally. OOH and a mentor, friend, pal ... he gave me often words of wisdom - always filled with LOVE. He honored me Connie did this to by allowing me to continue to be part of their family. Boppa enriched my life and Devon's soooo very much. He showed us the good and yes --- sometimes not so good side of life. HE opened marvelous doors of opportunity for us ... helped us in so many ways. We will miss the treasured heartbeats of having him in our lives --- oooooooooodles !!! With MUCH LOVE and a heavy sad heart .....we say good-bye .... xox Dev and Nan
To the entire Yaw family, On behalf of my father, Bill Moore, who preceded Bob in death in 2001, I want you to know how much Dad cared for and tresured his friendship with Bob. Dad moved to Houston from CR in 1972, but whenever he came back to visit, he never ever forgot to stop in and say hello to one of his favorite clients and friends, Bob Yaw. Growing up in CR, I knew Bob through Dad and was always impressed with how willing he was to spend time with a young kid...I wrote it off to Bob honoring Dad's friendship, but later learned from Dad how Bob was like that with everyone! I really enjoyed the names he had for his sons...when I had my firstborn son, I named him Cameron, then told Bob about naming him after Cam...Bob chuckled and said that I was partly right; I had the Cam part right but his full name wasn't Cameron but Campbell. Bob and Dad were lifelong friends and business associates, and Dad was never more proud to have a client like Bob. They were both dapper dressers, and I'm sure they're fussin over their sport coats right now! My deepest condolences on your loss...
Connie and family - please know that Bob was an important part of my mother's life. Billie Kubu always admired Bob's and Connie's treatment of her, not as ' hired help' but as a pair of true friends. She admired Bob's accomplishments, generosity in the community and love for Connie. I thank you personally for all the time you spent with her and others in our community who continue to benefit from Bob's and Connie's time and talents. Bob will be missed by many, but welcomed by many more in the next life. Love to you, Connie and Bob's extended family.
I wish to extend my sympathy to Mrs. Connie Yaw, Copper and Cam and extended family, on the passing of your husband, father, and grandfather, Robert Yaw. Mr. Yaw was a strong, resourceful, talented and energetic person with a drive to do well in all the things that he pursued. Most of all Mr. Yaw enjoyed people, the people around him and from around the world. For a short period of time, my life was deeply influenced by his family and circle of friends and I carry memories of that eventful time in my life. I remember with gratitude the opportunity to attend Coe College and acknowledge the debt that I owe to everyone.
To- Connie, Copper, Cam, and the rest of the extended Yaw family- I was deeply saddened to read of Bob's death. To me, this is another brick in the wall at the end of an era. I have many, many wonderful memories of you all- at CRCC, at my parents' home, and just out in the community. He is a special man and will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Margaret

Our sincere sympathy, to Robert, Kathy, Hunter and Walker on the loss of Mr. Yaw. We were former members of Church of the Palms in Sarasota, FL, and now reside in Virginia. My mother Ellen Miller worked for Mr. Yaw for a number of years at Souvenir Pencil Company in Cedar Rapids.
Would it be at all possible to e-mail me the mailing address for Mr. Yaw's son, Robert, who lives in Bradenton, FL. We were church friends when we lived in Sarasota, FL. and would like to send him and his family a note of sypathy. Sincerely, Keith and Kay Shadduck email@example.com
Sorry to hear of your loss. Bob was a wonderful person. Not only was he a good friend to my parents, but his friendship and support extended to their family members. After graduating business school, I will always remember and appreciate his efforts on my behalf to help me find my first job. My heartfelt condolences. Lesley Hood
