Coach Yourish was not just a good teacher,coach,skier and friend, he was a great person.From Freshman football to 'skiing the trees' , to taking the time to talk with my kids when we would run into each other at Seven Springs, HS football, grocery store etc.. Always upbeat when he was battling.The memories we all have will keep him around us always.

I remember Ken as such a sweet & gentle soul with a good sense of humor. He was one of my favorite teachers at Central. My condolences to his family and friends. Taken far too young.

He was a great man and teacher. Always asked about me and my family long after I graduated from GCC. He always had a smile on his face and never complained. Heaven has gained another bright star. Shine on Ken. My deepest sympathy to his family.
