Obituary for Andrew Jackson "Jack" Yates III, M.D.

Andrew Jackson Yates III, M.D., of Ridgeland, formerly of Jackson, died Friday, November 24, 2017 at his home.

A native of Memphis, Tennessee, born May 2, 1934, he was the son of the late Andrew J. Yates, Jr. and the late Maggie Glenn Dees Yates of Philadelphia, Mississippi. He grew up in Jackson and attended the Jackson City Schools, graduating from Central High School in 1952.

From a young age, Dr. Yates felt the need to help those in need and physical suffering which led to a long career in the medical profession. He received his premedical education at the University of Mississippi and Vanderbilt. In 1958, he received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Tennessee where he later returned and completed his pediatric residency.

He entered the U.S. Navy in 1959 and served honorably for two years. From 1967 until 2002, Dr. Yates practiced pediatrics in Jackson. He was a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Central Pediatric Society, serving a turn as its president. He was employed by the Disability Determination Services from 1967 until 2013 on a part time basis.

He will be lovingly remembered for his quick wit, gentle spirit, and his expressions of gratitude to those who loved and cared for him. He will always be a hero to his family.
