So sorry to hear of Byron's passing. We became good friends while both with Walker Ins. Enjoyed many lunches and golf games together. A good man!
Doesn't this photo of Byron depict his joy of knowing you? Bob and I were very close friends of Byron, Helen, Brad, Susan, and Wes as we were Hollingsworth Drive neighbors. Will never forget the time we spent working Pike Lions Club festivities together, the time Helen and Byron invited Steve, Karen, and I to spend the night at their house because we suffered a house fire in cold January, 1991! Sincere sympathies to Brenda, Susan, Brad, and Wes on the loss of your awesome husband and father! May he rest in peace w/Helen, Jewel, and Paul!
I met Byron in a business networking group, but quickly sparked a friendship with him and two of his good friends Pat Sherck and Pat Linquist. Byron always had a good joke and could bring a smile to your face..... Byron rest in peace and prayers to your family. Brian Lyons
The 1955 Pike High School classmates of Byron Young will miss him but always remember our friend and colleague as we share those high school experiences among ourselves. Football and basketball games, proms, high school teachers....a special time of our lives. May God strengthen the family through this time of loss. We pray all those special memories over the years are a comfort as Byron goes home.
We treasure the memories of a friend and Hollingsworth neighbor for many years. Our children were back and forth between our homes all during their growing up years. He and Bill even rigged up a type of phone between our homes.
We have grieved with them the loss of Helen, were glad with them when Brenda became part of their family. Weddings, the joy of being a grandparent, ball games, Pike chili suppers, Pike Twp. Lions' Club summer street fairs and fish frys all are woven into our memories. Byron was always quick with a laugh or a joke.
Words are inadequate, but know that we were blessed to have known him and his family. Rest in peace, Byron.
We enjoyed working alongside Byron during his time with Flanner Buchanan; his homemade treats were always appreciated. He was always cheerful and had a funny joke to share. His bright smile will certainly be missed.
I worked with Byron at Flanner Buchanan. He was a great guy. He had a great sense of humor and was always willing to go that extra mile to help anyone. We will sure miss him. Debbie B.
So sorry to hear of Uncle Byron’s passing. I remember him as a funny, cheerful person filled with jokes and funny stories freely shared at family gatherings. My prayers are with you Susan Brad and Wes as well as Brenda and all his family. Nancy Little Andersen
Byron and I started a Combo and with Dorothy Hines on Piano & Dennis on Guitar, Larry Tate on the Bass & me on the Drums. It was great! We played several dances at Pike. My condolences to his family & other Pike friends. Sincerely, Roy & Vicki Neiman
Byron was a really nice guy. Always friendly, always smiling and had a wonderful attitude. Great person.
Dear Young Family, We are sorry to hear of Byron's passing. Our prayers are with your family as you go through this time. We have known him since the '70's, and remember him from Traders Point, buying insurance from him, and seeing him all around Pike township. His spirit will live on in your hearts. Prayers sent your way today. Steve & Kathy Hinderliter
