ENID, Okla. — Celebration of life for Chris Clayton Yeager will be held for his family and friends at Stittsworth Memory Chapel on Friday, April 5, 2013, at 4 p.m.

Chris departed us on Sunday, March 31, 2013, at his home in Enid. Chris was born Oct. 21, 1955, in Mooreland, Okla., to Harrietta Grace Fields Yeager and Cecil Clayton Yeager. He graduated from Hardtner, Kan., High School in 1973.

Shortly after graduation, Chris entered the United States Air Force, where he served as a Telecommunications Specialist.

Upon Chris’s discharge from the Air Force he moved to Oklahoma, where he worked in construction, spending his time barbecuing and fishing with friends and family.
