Sun City, AZ – Peter C Yarnevich II passed away on December 1st, 2021. He will be missed greatly by those who love and knew him.

Peter was born and raised in Michigan. Business took him to Arizona in 1982. He worked for many companies in executive positions. Later in life he started his own company, Professional Leasing Services.

Pete was a math wiz, a voracious reader, extremely smart with a quick wit. He enjoyed playing cards and internet poker. He loved talking to people to really know them by asking thoughtful questions and listening to their answers. Pete earned all-city and all-state honors in both basketball and football. He always enjoyed playing golf, basketball and enjoyed watching sports.

For many years, Pete volunteered with Saint Vincent de Paul, Andre’ House and Saint Williams Catholic Church. Pete always put his trust in God and never lost faith.

God has you in his arms Peter and we have you in our hearts.

A memorial mass may be held in Michigan in summer of 2022.
