Len Yule Obituary, Death – In the evening of yesterday, Len Yule was taken away from us. He died in peace, yet his passing came as a shock to everyone. I can’t believe how surprised and irritated I am. I can’t believe it. I spoke with him the day before just about everything that happened. We share a very unique connection with one another, and we called each other once a week to catch up. It’s going to make me so sad to see that depart. He was the most exceptionally talented and intelligent individual I’ve ever had the good fortune to know. He was a man of many skills, including the ability to braid rawhide, work with leather, carve wood, be a blacksmith, and train horses. He was an all-around talented guy.
In addition to teaching clinics all over the world, he has also been featured in articles that have been published in Western Horseman magazine. He was held in very high esteem and enjoyed a great deal of renown within the cowboy subculture. To begin with and most importantly, he was my father. My greatest concern has always been that I will one day have to go through the anguish of losing a parent. I fear that day more than anything else. It is impossible to adequately convey the severity of this loss through words alone.
The untimely passing of Channon’s oldest brother, Len Yule, who was 76 years old, occurred last evening. I had just finished talking to him on the phone a few days ago. He was a man of amazing brilliance, talent, and artistic aptitude all rolled into one. We are going to miss having him here with us. Please remember to include his wife Barbara, their children, and all of our families in your thoughts. He and Barbara have four children together.
