Local Death Notices

The car cruise community and entertainment world lost Robert (Yogi) Halsaver on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at Shadyside Hospital. He lived in Hays near Holy Angels Church. He would have turned 74 years old in October 2017.

Not only did he own some antique and classic cars, he won trophies for his 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible. The front license read "crystal blue persuasion." He also was a business man, with a Wendy’s restaurant and a bar in West Homestead named Yogi's.

The best part of his life was being a great drummer for a group called the Vibra-sonics, who record several records and received air play on a local Pittsburgh station called "Drag City" on a Sharpsburg label. The group played weekly at the Cowshed in Conneaut, Ohio and at the Cove Nightclub in Large, PA.

A memorial car cruise will be scheduled for the summer with the Wax brothers (Matt and Jeff) along with the emperor of car cruises, Hugh "Babe" O’Donnell. More details are to come.
