Gregory was born on April 2, 1996, in Eau Claire, to Ron and Laura (Stahl) Yohn.  He graduated from Elk Mound High School with the class of 2014.  Gregory attended school at CVTC and UW Eau Claire.

Gregory was preceded in death by his grandfather and great-grandfathers.

He is survived by his parents; grandparents, Ken and Cheryl Stahl and Sally Yohn; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

  • Anne Halloin I'm writing to express my deepest condolences for Gregory ... You may not remember me, but I dated Gregory in the summer of 2014. Words can't describe what a gentleman he was; he was always considerate, always compassionate, and (sometimes) funny (he loved puns, which were usually more groan worthy than laughable!) ... It hurts so deeply to write about him in the past tense. The world lost someone lovely and I sobbed for days when I heard the news. I pray for him, and for your family as you find healing in the midst of his loss.

  • Patricia De Moe Dear Ron and Laura, Greg was one of my fourth grade students,years ago. He was such a happy and considerate person. I will never forget when he came to school with both arms in casts when he flew over his four wheeler. I felt so sorry for him, but he took it like a trooper, getting all his work done in spite of his temporary handicap. I am so sorry that he has passed. I will forever keep him my heart. My prayers.

  • Rachel Schenk I used to work with Greg at the YMCA Child Development Center. I didn't know him for long but he was fun to work with and always made everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. The children absolutely adored him and I could see that the things he taught them about being themselves and loving each other will stay with them for the rest of their lives. I am so sorry for your loss and please know that you are in my thoughts.
