Code Talker Yazzie led a fulfilling life

Other jobs later in life took a backseat to missionary work

A voice and a legacy from the past signed off forever last month. Rev. Lemuel B. Yazzie, 91, of Whitecone, Ariz., near the four corners area, died May 28. He was more than a missionary, pastor and father, according to his son Walter Kisemh of Peach Springs. Yazzie was a national hero.
