Donald E. Young

January 13, 1955 ‒ October 12, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Donald E. Young peacefully passed away Saturday, October 12, 2019, in his daughter’s Mansfield home at the age of 64.

He was born January 13, 1955, to parents George & Darlene (Leisure) Young in Ashland. After graduating from Ashland High School, he proudly served his country as a member of the US Navy during the Vietnam War.

Don was a volunteer firefighter for many years and was a member of the American Legion in Johnsville and the Masonic Lodge in Mt. Gilead. He was an amateur radio operator and very much enjoyed speaking with ham radio friends under his call signal: KB8AUK.

Don was full of life and had many varied talents including playing the violin and everything to do with computers. But above all, Don cherished spending time with his girls.

He is survived by two daughters, Jennifer Young of Mansfield, and Robyn Young (Issac) of Bellville; his mother, Darlene of Ashland; four brothers and a sister; numerous nieces and nephews; and the mother of his children, Maxine Young of Bellville.

Don was preceded in death by his father, George.

Although no public service will be held in Don’s memory, his family hopes that you will remember him in your own special way. Snyder Funeral Homes is honored to serve his family and encourage you to share a memory with them at
