Enver Yalcin

In Loving Memory

Yalcin, Enver M.D.

Enver Yalcin, M.D., of St. Louis, Missouri, peacefully passed away on Friday, June 9, 2023 with his sons by his side.  Enver was born near Torbali, Turkey on April 14, 1928, one of four children born to Abdulbaki and Sefika Yalcin. After completing medical school at Istanbul University and compulsory military service, Dr. Yalcin moved to the United States to pursue the American dream. After completing a series of internships and residencies at a number of hospitals in the United States and Canada, including chief resident at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Yalcin settled in St. Louis. Here he built a private practice in South County which he maintained for over forty years and became a naturalized United States citizen in a Fourth of July ceremony on the steps of the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis. Dr. Yalcin also built a business in real estate, owning and managing several properties including the building where he housed his medical practice. Dr. Yalcin was devoted to his work and patients and also loved vegetable gardening, landscaping, and travel. He was especially fond of taking camping trips to Maroon Lake in Colorado and the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Enver was preceded in death by his parents, brother, and both sisters. Enver is survived by his sons, Kaplan and Erik, and grandchildren Shasta, Logan, and Trenton.

  4. Enver Yalcin,MD was a very valuable person. As his two daughthers Yurdanur Yalcin Terek, MD and Semra Yalcin Kaya living in Turkey are very sorry for their loss. The four grandchildren Cosan Terek, MD, Gulfem Terek Ece, MD, Selin Kaya, MD and Tuna Kaya are very sorry for losing their grandfather. Enver Yalcin loved his two daughthers and there was not a single day that he did not speak to them. His last will was to live and be buried in Turkey but this was not possible. He will always be remembered in our hearts.

  8. Dear Grandpa
    I will never forget our beautiful memories with my mother Yurdanur Yalcin Terek, my wife Cem Ece and our daughter Alara Yurdanur Ece.
    We haven’t been able to tell Alara Yurdanur Ece, your beloved little granddaughter, that she has passed away yet. I think this will be the hardest for me.
    In the most beautiful corner of our house, you had a photograph of my mother taken when she was a child. We put the last photo you took with Alara next to her.
    You are in the most beautiful corner of our home and our hearts.



  9. My friend my doctor my business associate was a kind remarkable individual Who will be missed by family and all who knew this general polite man I was privileged to travel and share in visits with all His family in both America and turkey. In turkey his 1st mode of transportation as a doctor was a horse then a motorcycle.

  10. I am so sorry for your loss. I only had the opportunity to meet Enver one time when Kaplan and I were traveling to Colorado, but I felt like I knew him through all of the stories that I heard over the years. He was the true embodiment of the America Dream, coming here from Turkey and not only becoming a very successful and accomplished Physician and business man, but a vital part of his community. I know he will be deeply missed and I offer the family my deepest condolences in this time of loss.
