Richard (Dick) Yost, RPh

Most of Dick's life has revolved around Yost Pharmacy. It began in 1945 when his parents purchased the pharmacy, and the family lived in the space above the store. He has worked his whole life in the family business - first as a clerk in high school, an intern while in college and today as a pharmacist and owner. A University of Cincinnati 1966 graduate from the College of Pharmacy, Dick has seen the business grow from a one-pharmacist store to five pharmacists. "As Mason grew, we were fortunate to grow with it," he says. "I have enjoyed living in Mason and feeling that our customers are an extension of our family." Dick further engages with the community through his volunteer work, having been a Kiwanis member for 40 years and a founding member of the local Chamber of Commerce. He also has served on the boards of the Warren County Foundation, Mason Christian Village, and Peoples First Savings Bank. He and his wife, Jane, have four children Sarah, Theresa, David and Matthew and seven grandchildren.
