Very Sad News


It is with a heavy heart that we’re reporting the passing of Bob Yeck.  Bob touched a lot of lives and there will be many tributes paid to him from various individuals and organizations, however we are going to recognize his service to AAF-Dayton (Dayton Advertising Club).  For many, Bob WAS the club, a constant, welcoming presence at meetings and events.

Bob became a member of the club in the 1970’s.  He chaired many committees including Golf, Hermes, Programs, and Social, as well as serving on just about every committee.  He was president for the 1984-1985 club year and received the AAF Silver Medal in 2003.  He served as the club treasurer for many years following his presidency.  Bob was recognized multiple times in the Mercury Awards, receiving the trophy for Best Fulfillment/Mail House Rep in 2007, 2013 and 2016 and Best Fulfillment/Mail House Company in 2008.  Through his graciousness, the AAF-Dayton archives are stored at Yeck Brothers Company and because of this, he was instrumental in creating a display of the club through the years at our 100th Anniversary Celebration in 2011.

Not only did he impact the local club, but he assisted the AAF 5th District when Dayton hosted the district arm of the National Student Advertising Competition.  He loved being the timekeeper of the presentations so he could see the incredible presentations and judges questions/answers of the students.

If you have comments you’d like to share with the family, please e-mail them to us and we’ll compile to give them.

There will be a Celebration of Life Service
