We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of Richard Young on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015 at his home in Fort St. John, BC.
He leaves to remember him, his loving wife Merrill Young; his children Christopher Young, Melissa (Ryan) Fisher, and Amy (John) McAllister; his parents Raymond and Viola Young of 83 Mile House, BC; his siblings Arthur Young, Margaret Young, Elizabeth (Joe) Joy, and Cathy (Ken) Riddle. Two grandchildren are left to hear stories of their grandfather – Rachel and Addison.
A well-known and respected salesman and manager throughout BC and Alberta, Richard enjoyed life. Farm life always appealed to him and you would find him spending his weekends puttering around on his tractor and other “toys”.
Richard believed strongly in the value of dedicated work, and loyalty to friends and family.
The family wishes to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and kindness during this difficult time.
A Celebration of Life Social Gathering was held Aug. 25, 2015 at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Fort St. John.
Arrangements were entrusted to Bergeron Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd.
