He was predeceased by his first wife Audrey (Anderson) Yale, daughter Teri Yale, son Richard Fahey, second beloved wife of 49 years Nancy (Blair) Yale, and daughter Margi Fendt. Surviving are his children Catherine Abbott, Gary Yale, Joseph Fahey (Denise Contento), Kelley Romano (Michael), Jacqueline Pittarelli (David), many grandchildren and several great grandchildren. The family will hold a private service at Spring Forest Cemetery, Binghamton.
