Yellowhair, William: US Marine Veteran Walks On

Coalmine Canyon, Arizona

Funeral services were held for WILLIAM YELLOWHAIR, SR, 94, on June 9, at the Flagstaff Assembly Church in Flagstaff, Arizona. Interment, with military honors, followed at Flagstaff Citizens Cemetery, veteran’s section. William passed away June 5, 2011, at the home of his daughter in Phoenix, Arizona, surrounded by his wife, children and grandchildren.
   
William lived his entire life on the Navajo Reservation in and around the Tuba City area until his family moved him to Phoenix immediately prior to his death to provide at-home hospice care. He was a Marine veteran and was honorably discharged in 1945. Major stints of employment throughout his life include serving as a Navajo tribal police officer in the 1950s, followed by three terms as a Navajo Tribal Council delegate representing Coalmine Canyon Chapter. He was also elected, at various times, to chapter-affiliated positions such as chapter secretary and grazing officer. Upon conclusion of his political career, he remained close to home and maintained his ranch and livestock until age-related illnesses would no longer permit it. (Navajo Times, June 9, 2011)
