Larry Yeagley is a retired pastor currently living in Gentry, Arkansas. During his forty-one years of service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Yeagley pastured churches in Ohio, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Michigan, and served as a hospital chaplain in Michigan and Texas.
While working as pastor and chaplain, he co-developed two hospices, one in Battle Creek, Michigan, and one in Ft. Worth, Texas. For thirty years, Yeagley served as a volunteer chaplain and bereavement care coordinator for several hospices. His service in this area led him to develop a bereavement support program. His model for support groups is used by hospices and churches in the United States and Canada.
