On Monday, January 4th, 2021, Terrell (Terry) Edward Yon Jr. , reunited with his Mother and Father. The Angels of the Lord rescued Terry from the grip of complications created by the Covid-19 virus.Terry, the first born son of Lt. Col. Terrell E. Yon and Norma Elaine Eubanks Yon, was born on July 1, 1945, in the Army Hospital which was located at Dale Mabry Army Airfield in Tallahassee, Florida. At the completion of his Dad’s WWII tour of active duty, the family returned back home to Blountstown, Florida, in 1947.Terry spent his formative years in Blountstown doing the things a young man does in a ‘two traffic light’ small rural community. As a young boy he was taught to rise and shine. He attended the First Baptist Church. Terry was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout. He pursued his first business adventure by seeking out opportunities and mowing yards. He later worked at his parent’s department store. During the summer of his teen years he worked on the state road department’s maintenance crew. This background contributed to the development of his work ethics.Life in Blountstown was not all work. He would hunt and fish with family and friends. He developed his early football and baseball skills. He developed his time management skills when he served as the high school football team manager. When it became his turn as a player, he was the starting halfback for the Blountstown High School (BHS) ‘Tigers’ football team. All of these experiences would evolve and later be applied by Terry to become an entrepreneur.Upon graduating from BHS in 1963, Terry began to spread his wings to pursue the American Dream. Terry attended Chipola Jr. College for two years. During the summer of those two years he lived at Mexico Beach and worked at the Port St. Joe paper mill. All of his monetary accumulations during those years were used to purchase a 1965 Red Fastback Mustang with four in the floor. In the late summer of 1965, Terry packed up his Mustang and headed to the University of Florida (UF) to pursue a major in Pharmacy. At UF he joined the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, and as most guys did, he held various jobs and worked to pay school expenses. During his latter years at UF (1965-68), he was introduced by friends to Ms. Tyrene Richardson and they were later married in Gainesville, Florida on January 15, 1967. In the spring of 1968 he graduated from the UF with a BS in Pharmacy. With dollars saved by the married couple, they purchased a yellow Corvette Convertible, moved to Tallahassee, Florida, and he began working at Brown’s Pharmacy which was owned by Ralph Brown, a former Blountstown native. The Mustang was handed down to his brother. In the next six years, he served in the U.S. Army Reserves. While living in Tallahassee, Terry and Tyrene had two children: Terra and Trey. Subsequently, the family moved to Blountstown to work and raise their family. As time progressed, Terry and W. L. Godwin became partners and operated Yon and Godwin Drugs. In the next chapter of his life, he started on a new frontier and worked with the Florida Pharmacy Association and was a national lobbyist for Walgreens. In these endeavors, he further polished his God given ability for engaging people, and the best was yet to come. Terry saw a need which created a vision. He compiled all the skills he had developed over the years, started a management consulting firm, and as President of Terry Yon & Associates, Inc. (TYA), he built a successful pharmacy repackaging business. TYA provided pharmacy dispensing services to government and private institutions. His general council was Robert Trammell, a Blountstown native and a best friend. His right hand man was Mitch McElroy. Terry was involved with the Republican National Committee, was an avid Florida Gator fan, and was an active member and usher at the Destiny Worship Center in Miramar Beach, Florida. Terry adored his five (5) grandchildren. In retirement, he moved to the Destin/Santa Rosa Beach, Florida area, a part of Florida he learned to love in his early twenties.Terry was a great lover of man’s best friend.
