Billie Lee Yoho, age 86, of Berkeley Springs, passed away on Tuesday, September 18, 2012.

Bill, a practicing attorney for 58 years in Prince George’s and Washington counties in Maryland, was the son of Wilbur Wiley and Nellie Pansy Hawkins, of Huntington, W.Va.

He is survived by his wife, Shirley Ann Yoho; son, Kevin R. Yoho and wife, Melissa J. Arnott; daughter, Karen L. Yoho; John M. Dolby and wife, Shelley A.; Dianne C. Arter and husband, Jim; Jean M.

Bill held many leadership roles, including Lions Clubs International, the Maryland Bar Association, and in Municipal Government. He participated in the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, the Shriners, Tall Cedars of Lebanon, and Knights Templar.

He enlisted in the United States Navy, and after his Honorable Discharge, he attended the University of Maryland as an undergraduate, and then law school. Bill earned advanced pilot certifications both in aviation and boating, which he enjoyed.

Engaged by faith in Jesus Christ and involved with church, Bill loved to learn and teach Bible classes as a Presbyterian ruling elder, and as a Baptist, bringing full circle his mother telling him he was named for preacher Billy Sunday.
