I am so sorry to hear this. I am confident that our God will carry you all through this time. “However, we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the power beyond what is normal may be God’s and not from us. We are hard-pressed in every way, but not cramped beyond movement; we are perplexed, but not absolutely with no way out.” -2 Corinthians 4:7,8

The Simmons family on Daufuskie express our deepest condolences to your family during this difficult time. My highest regard for a family that has been on the right side of history when it was not socially popular. Gerald was particularly decent and very fair-minded. Our families shared so many closeness going back many generations! We pray that you are encouraged by Gerald’s good examples of being such a decent human being. May God continue to give you the strength to continue life’s journey.

Mr. Gerald McArthur Yarborough, age 77, died September 26, 2019 at his residence on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. Mr. Yarborough was a native of Daufuskie Island, having lived there all of his life, other than time spent in the military. He was a retired U.S. Army E7. A “jack of all trades,” Mr. Yarborough had worked, among other things, as a security guard, a welder, an electrician, and he held the distinction of being one of the first Emergency Medical Technicians on Daufuskie Island. He loved to hunt and fish, was a great dancer, and was a very giving, selfless person, who was a caregiver to many throughout his life.

Surviving are his sons, Steven Yarborough (Nicole) and Stewart Yarborough, all of Daufuskie Island; a daughter, Pam Foucher of Columbus, GA; grandsons, Jonnathon Foucher of Columbus, GA, Kade Yarborough and Parker Yarborough, both of Daufuskie Island; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

A graveside funeral service and burial for Mr. Yarborough will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at Mary Dunn Cemetery on Daufuskie Island with Pastor Aaron Crosby officiating.

A visitation will be held from 6:00 until 7:30 pm on Monday, September 30, 2019 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Islands Chapel.
