  • So sorry to hear that “Tiny” has passed away. He was a big part of my childhood and into my adult life. I will always cherish the times spent going to lunch on Sundays and times spent going to shooting at the range and especially the three fishing and hunting trips in Canada. So glad that I was able to spend some time with him last labor day when visiting family in Ohio. It is good to know that he is in heaven and look forward to seeing there in eternity.

  • So sad . I just heard the news. I am at a loss for words . Just a year ago we lost Meach 🙁 🙁 🙁 . So so sad . Rip grandpa young and meach

  • We certainly had our differences, but you will be sorely missed, Tiny. I have many fond memories of you and Ruth when I lived in Maryland. You had a big heart and a generous nature. I appreciate all you did for us. See you soon.

  • now all the Young brothers are together in heaven. I can just see them all laughing and slapping each other’s back. I have so many memories of you and the Young brothers. I am glad that through all these years we stayed in touch and I am glad I just came up a few months ago and visited with you. Rest in Peace, I love you

  • I have such blessed and fond memories of Hansford (TINY)!! He always had a heart to help others. Yes, he was dogmatic on his views and beliefs, but that is not a bad thing! I know that he loved Christ and the Bible. He always had a burden for the salvation of his family members!! We will miss him tremendously, but he is in Heaven, the country where I long to be also. I pray for grace and comfort for those of the family that remain. I trust that you know that you are ready to meet Christ and will be in Heaven with Tiny also.

  • Grandpa, you will be missed! While I enjoyed our fishing trips together when I was young, it was how you cared for me as a Christian man that I will miss most. My wife will miss you asking her to make coffee even if she didn’t know how and my daughter will miss her “best” grandpa as she often referred to you as. I love you!

  • I THOUGHT I SEND THIS MESSAGE BEFORE BUT IT MUST NOT HAVE GONE TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
    THANKS TO THE MAN WHO CALLED ME TO TELL ABOUT HANS DEATH.
    I WENT TO WOOSTER HIGH SCHOOL WITH HANS AND HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR OVER SIXTY YEARS. SORRY MY HEALTH DID NOT PERMIT ME TO ATTEND THE FUNERAL, BUT I WAS WITH YOU IN SPIRIT AND PRAYERS. HANS WAS A GOOD CHRISTIAN MAN, I WILL MISS OUR TALKS ON THE PHONE.
    WE WILL MEET AGAIN IN HEAVEN. CLIFF

  • Hansford and my father Bob Graham were buddies until his death in 1987. I grew up enjoying his sense of humor and teasing my mom Madge Graham Ditch who passed away in 2014. He and Daddy got into fights and I remember one in particular where they fell on my mom’s new kitchen table set smashing it. Needless to say they were both in the dog house for that one. As a nurse at WCH, I was able to take care of a great many of the Young brothers. I worked with Chris at ACDC and George lived in Fredericksburg where I live. I went to school with Blanch and Herb Young, and my son was best friends with Chad Young growing up. I thought Hansford’s name was Handsome for years as he was a very good looking man. I laugh now remembering that he never corrected me… Later in life he would stop in some to “preach” to me off and on; although I haven’t seen him in a long while. My father also found the Lord later in life and My Mom had him with her, her entire life. Hoping you all find comfort in knowing that he was well liked and got to live longer then Danny Stillwagner, Red Workman, Harold Byrd. It makes me smile to think that the brothers, my father and mother and all the other “good ole boys” they ran with are all up there together.
