Morris “Moe” Yauk, 73, of Loveland, passed away on July 11, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of 23 years to Arlene (Hardy) Yauk. Born in Goessel, Kansas, he was the son of the late Clinton Yauk and Martha (Helmer) Yauk.
Moe is survived by his wife Arlene; three children Shannon Love of Denver (Keith), Adam Yauk of Denver (Stacy) and Meghan Gosk of Seattle (Canaan); two step children Sara Case of Loveland (Bill) and Angie Schaefer of Aurora (James); sister Phyllis Elston of Wichita (Don); and nine grandchildren Clyde and Keenan Love, Annie Yauk, Ascher Meunier and Cohen Gosk, Emma and Ryan Case, and Jay and Camryn Schaefer.
Moe spent the first 13 years of his life living on the family farm outside of Durham, Kansas. He and his family then moved to Hillsboro, Kansas, where he graduated high school in 1964. He served in the Air Force in Korea during the Vietnam War. Upon leaving the service, he moved to Colorado where he lived in Denver, and eventually settled in Loveland. He had a successful career in the insurance industry before transitioning into selling residential real estate.
Moe was most proud of his children and flourished as a grandfather, where he was known as Poppy and Papa. Moe was an avid outdoorsman finding joy in hiking, biking, fishing, and camping. During his retirement, one of his greatest loves was RVing with his wife and spending their winter months in Arizona. A great day there would include pickleball, riding his bike, making friends, and enjoying a cocktail.
