Goffstown - James Biddle Yarnall, Jr., "Jim", age 62 of Goffstown, died suddenly at his home on January 26, 2018 while recovering from recent major surgery.
Born in Wynnewood Pennsylvania, he was the son of Jim and Phyllis (Aspen) Yarnall, both deceased. He was raised in suburban Philadelphia and attended Friends Central School, the Westtown School and graduated from Radnor High School. He was active in many sports including soccer, karate, tennis and skiing to name a few. He was an avid musician and began playing guitar in high school bands; later performing professionally. He graduated from New England College with a BA in Psychology in 1980. He studied Psychological Services at the graduate level at the University of Pennsylvania.
For much of his career Jim was a behavior specialist and helped many patients young and old within an institutional setting. He particularly liked working with young patients because “many of them cure themselves over time”. In addition to consulting work in psych services he led a group home for teens. Later in his career he drew on his interest in technology, electronics and “gadgets” as a manager for Radio Shack. After retirement Jim found time to pursue his interests in music, golf, boating, hiking and traveling in the White Mountains with friends and family.
Jim is survived by many wonderful cousins; his brother, Steve; sister-in-law, Libby Mapes Yarnall and devoted nieces Sidney, Ellie and Rebecca; all of Villanova PA.
Relatives and friends are invited to his Memorial Service on Saturday February 17th 11:00 a.m. at Weare Quaker Meeting, 529 Quaker Street, Henniker, New Hampshire. Burial will be in Pennsylvania.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory would be appreciated to: Westtown School, 960 Shady Grove Way, West Chester PA 19382..
