Beth and Family - Dr. Yeager was by far one of the nicest and most energetic people I've ever known. He was a dedicated care giver, community leader, and teacher. It breaks my heart to hear of his passing.

I only knew Dr. Yeager as a patient. He was such a good doctor who took such great care of his patients. I had cataract surgery last fall. Although he didn’t do the actual surgery, he was invaluable in finding the right balance in my prescription implant lenses. I respected him so much. He will be greatly missed. Praying for his family in their time of loss.

So sorry for your loss, Beth. Dwayne was such a wonderful mentor to me after my first year in optometry school. He so graciously let me follow him around in his office and taught me so much that summer. His wonderful presence will be missed by so many.

Dwayne was working at St Francis when I first met him. He talked to me about his plans to go to Optometry school. It was great that he went and returned to West Monroe to practice. Dwayne was devoted to his patents and they were devoted to him. He took very good care of them. It was a pleasure to work with Dwayne and his patients. Of course, his patients and I will miss him. Dwayne was always nice to me and I only have good memories. I hate that Dwayne is no longer with us. My utmost condolences Raymond Haik

Carolyn Leavell Nicholson left a message on June 25, 2020:
Peering under brown bangs, this little beany,brown-eyed boy was sitting on the front row of the first class I taught at CHS. He was in a class of 38 boys, but he immediately stood out. He became my Dennis the Menace, but he could always make me laugh. Dwayne had an engaging personality that students and teachers alike loved. I had the privilege of teaching him two more times. I was so proud that he became such an outstanding young man. What a better place the world would be with more students, husbands, fathers, doctors, neighbors and Christians like Dwayne. He walked the school halls with Beth whom he adored, but someday they will again stroll the halls of our Heavenly Father. ... what a glorious day. Beth, may God's presence and loving arms surround you and your precious family now. I pray that God, the source of all hope, will fill you completely with peace through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Pam Coker left a message on June 25, 2020:

Beth and Family, It breaks my heart to hear of Dwayne's homegoing. His and Beth's lovestory started way back in the '70s. At CHS, rarely did you ever see Beth without Dwayne. He was also our optometrist until we moved to Houston. I pray that your memories of his deep love for you, his children and grands, along with his devotion to the Lord Jesus will comfort, hold and keep you all until that Great Reunion in Heaven. Becky Sims Sisson, CHS Class of 1977
Krystal Guillory left a message on June 24, 2020:
Dr. Yeager was a great eye doctor, but an even better man. He took the time with my children and I and cared for us people—not just patients. He was always sure to to keep abreast all of our medical health, not just our eyes. I never hesitated to recommend him to students and families as well. We are sad to lose him here, but we rejoice that he is with Christ in Heaven now praising our savior. Prayers and comfort for Beth and his family. Love in Christ, Krystal, Eric, Austin, and Brilyn Guillory

Beth, children and grandchildren, I am so sorry you have lost your precious husband, dad and grandfather. Dr. Yeager was a good friend to me, a good eye doctor and a special member of The Planning Commission. Dr. Yeager is the one who asked me if I would like to be on the Planning Commission board after I worked to protect the neighborhood from being destroyed by selfish interest. I will always remember and appreciate his kindness. With sadness and love, Judy W Poole

Dr. Ralph Herring left a message on June 24, 2020:
Dwayne was a proud University of Houston College of Optometry alumnus and—for more than ten years—an outstanding adjunct Associate Clinical Professor. He mentored over three dozen students in their final year of clinical training. Literally every one of these students praised Dwayne’s outstanding teaching and mentorship. I hope his family take comfort in how many Optometry careers got off to a great start because of his passion and devotion. Definitely a textbook example of someone paying it forwarding!

Dr Yeager was my first Optometrist and when I developed glaucoma he referred me to a specialist. He was always a kind and caring physician and treated me with professionalism. I attended cosmetology school with his wife Beth and always admired their loving relationship. I know he will be missed by many and pray his family finds comfort in that. RIP Dr. Yeager
