Dr. Robert S. Yurick passed away peacefully on September 21, 2018 surrounded by his family. Bob attended Lakewood High School where he played on championship football and baseball teams. He received a football scholarship to play under Woody Hayes at the Ohio State University where he met the love of his life. Bob was a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity. He had an offer to play major league baseball with the Boston Red Sox, but turned it down to attend medical school. He graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine with an AOA scientific honorary award and did his residency training at University Hospitals. Bob worked as an Orthopedic Surgeon for 38 years at Lakewood, Fairview and St. John Hospitals and was one of the original founding members of Orthopedic Associates. Bob had a love for medicine and his patients and was very generous with his time. He was the team physician for the Rocky River High School football team for 22 years. Bob was an avid Cleveland sports fan, but was a true Brown's fanatic and a long-time season ticket holder. He can rest more peacefully knowing that the Browns may have found their franchise QB. He watched Big Ten sports especially his family's alma maters. Bob was a member of the Cleveland Yachting Club for 49 years where he enjoyed boating and fishing on the Cast Off. He loved family vacations to his home in Naples, Florida and cruising in the Caribbean. Bob is preceded in death by his parents Charles and Ruth, Grandmother Clara Ryan, brother-in-law Edward Zink, aunt, uncles and cousins. Bob is survived by his wife Leisa of 61 years, their daughter Linnea Michels (Greg), son Robert Yurick (Heidi-deceased), granddaughters Kelsey and Kristi Michels and Lauren and Lindsay Yurick, nephews Greg, Gary and Randy Zink and families and cousins. Bob was extremely proud of his family and all of their accomplishments.
