Glenn Francis Yost was killed in World War II (WWII) as a member of the South Saskatchewan Rifles in the fighting that followed the D-Day invasion of France. To honour his contribution a lake in Saskatchewan has been given the name Yost Lake.
Yost Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada
The lake was named after Glenn Yost on September 2, 1951 as part of the project begun in 1947 by the Saskatchewan Geographic Names Board and completed by Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan in 2003.
The lake measures about 3.2km long and 1.9km wide.
Yost Lake is a 261km drive northeast of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. The lake is located quite close (185km) to Dorintosh, Saskatchewan where his parents lived.
