He was born on May 10, 1929, in Middlebury to Ira and Ola (Mishler) Yoder.
On Sept. 30, 1951, in Goshen, he married Florence Ramer. She survives.
Survivors, in addition to his wife, are two sons, Dennis (Jennifer) Yoder and Dana Yoder, and daughter, Beth (Frank) Fisher, all of Middlebury; five grandchildren, Jared, Jenna, Emily, Ethan and Ella; one great-grandson, Jaxx Fisher; and brother, Merritt (Rose) Yoder of Venice, Florida.

Pete worked as an electrician in his younger years and as a farmer for most of his life. He had been an active member for many years of the former Forks Mennonite Church, now the Middlebury Community Church of the Nazarene. He had a true love for the Lord and was known as the spiritual leader of his family. As a young man he served his IW service in Mississippi. He enjoyed traveling, especially with his family. He was a massage therapist for 15 years. Music was an important part of his life. Pete and Florence gave many music programs with their children and grandchildren and Pete was a member of the Crusaders Quartet for 25 years. He was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather.
The family would like to thank Courtyard Healthcare and Elara Caring Hospice for their compassion and the loving care that they provided to Pete and his family.
