Yes, this does sound like my father. My father, according to what was read to me as young girl, was that he hung himself in an apartment behind the Calhoun County Courthouse. He was married to Sara Jane Yon.
My paternal grandmothers other name weas Estelle Yon. She was married to a Yon, I believe a George Yon, that died serving in a war, I'm not really sure. My father had brothers named Pewee Mitchell, Jimmy Mitchell, and sisters named Linda Young, Ellen Glass, Patricia.
