James B. "Brian" Yeakley, age 50 of Beavercreek, OH, passed away on Saturday, June 27, 2020. He was born December 27, 1969 in Dayton, Ohio to James and Virginia (Csaszar) Yeakley. Brian married Melanie Williams on August 10, 1990 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Brian was a devoted husband and father. He had the kindest heart and always had time for everyone. Brian was constantly looking to lend a hand, and not just show you, but teach you how to do anything with his unmeasurable skills and determination. At every opportunity, Brian took the time to make sure his family knew how much he loved and cared for them. Brian was known for his "Brian-isms," with funny sayings, catchphrases, dad jokes, and hilarious voices. He enjoyed playing board games, completing puzzles, grilling, and sharing new experiences with his family, especially when traveling.

As a "Fix-it-up-Chappy," Brian was always looking to perform projects around the home, and could "James-rig" anything to make it work. Since 1989, he used his extremely strong work ethic to the benefit of his nation. Brian served in the Air Force, retiring in 2009. He then continued to work as a government contractor for Booz Allen Hamilton, providing for our nation's defense until his death. Brian earned a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Arkansas and a Master’s degree in Industrial & Human Factors Engineering from Wright State University.

Brian is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 30 years, Melanie; his daughter, Kailey Yeakley; his son, Branson Yeakley; his soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Ellie Goeller; his step-father, Al Cline; his sister, Jennifer (Troy) Domke; his in-laws Jerry and Sandy Williams; and other family and friends. He is preceded in death by his father, James Yeakley and mother, Virginia Cline.

A Celebration of Life will be held on July 3, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions - Beavercreek Chapel, 3380 Dayton-Xenia Rd., Beavercreek, Ohio 45432.
