They married August 29, 1959. They just celebrated their 60th year wedding anniversary. Billy’s first job was working as an assistant manager for Humpty Dumpty grocery. Not long after, he went to work for Kincannon Furniture where he developed a love for the furniture business. He won many sales contests which awarded him and Susie trips all over the world. Billy began his career by establishing Yoast Furniture in 1963. Yoast Furniture served the Lawton area for over 50 years. Hardly a day goes by that his family is not greeted by a customer from the past who has a kind story to share about doing business with Mr. Yoast.
