Stephen Yeager, Daring, and Effective, a Publicity-Shy Leader
Not available online
TitleStephen Yeager, Daring, and Effective, a Publicity-Shy Leader
AbstractThe "Tribute" column of "Remembrances" or obituary section of the Kansas City Star features Stephen Yeager. He was the founder of Steve's Shoes and a fundraiser for charities that help disabled people. He died February 25, 2007. "From a shop on the Country Club Plaza, Steve's Shoes - originally named Tots To Teens--grew to a chain including several stores. His father, a traveling shoe salesman, helped Yeager put together the money for the store. The chain's assests were sold in a bankruptcy auction in 2006." Yeager and his wife Mary Kay were part of a group that helped to start Faith Village, a residential facility for adults with mental retardation. He also regularly was a part of the Bob Hope Desert Classic golf tournament and the picture with the feature shows him with Bob Hope, Gerald Ford, and Arnold Palmer.
