Tim Yoder, 2011 Inductee
Serving 17 years as a commissioner on the Fountain Hills Fire District board is enough in itself to qualify for the Hall of Fame, but Mr. Yoder’s contributions to the betterment of his community go far beyond that. He arrived in the community in August 1973, and with his father, Fred, and brother Glen formed Yoder Corp., which is the longest continually operating building firm in the community. He organized the Y Indian Guides that was affiliated with the Mesa YMCA. He also helped start the Cub Scouts, Fountain Hills Little League and the Fountain Hills Licensed Contractors Association. He coached at all levels and served on the board of the little league. Working with other volunteers, he donated materials and labor and supervised the construction of the concession stand at Four Peaks field. Another of his projects was to organize and help build the infield on the baseball field at Four Peaks Elementary. He also served on the Committee of Architecture for nine years and was on the board of the Community Association for one year. Also a member of Sunset Kiwanis for many years, he was named Fountain Hills Citizen of the Year in 1986.
