Robert “Bib” A. Young went to be with the Lord after a long battle with heart and vascular disease from exposure to agent orange, Sunday morning, July 12, 2020, in Ashland Samaritan Medical Center surrounded by his family. He was 74.
He was born March 27, 1946, in Cleveland to parents Arthur F. & Dorothy (Parsons) Young. After Bib graduated from Loudonville High School with the class of 1964, he proudly served his country by joining the US Marine Corps in 1965, during the Vietnam War. He was honorably discharged in 1967, earning the National Defense Service Medal.
Before joining the Marines, Bib met a beautiful young lady named Stacie Biddle at Mohican Lanes Bowling Alley, where he worked. After returning from Vietnam the pair married on August 18, 1968, in Lucas at the Mt. Zion Lutheran Church.
As a young man, Bib worked at several of the local Grocery Stores, Mohican Lanes, and the Flxible Co. He then went on to Mansfield Plumbing Products, where he worked for over 30 years until retiring in 2003. Bib worked in many departments and both plants throughout the years.
He took pleasure in sports of different types, including baseball and football. Especially golf and bowling, being very active in leagues for many years. Bib and Stacie are also long-time members of the Zion Lutheran Church in Loudonville.
He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years Stacie Young; children Rob (Karen) Young of Clyde, NC, Tracie (Jim) Middleton of Wooster, and Casey (Kellyn) Young of Perrysville; grandchildren Tiffany (Jon) Kibler, Kinzee Young, Nathan Young, Sam Young, Bryce Weaver, Rhen Weaver, Zeno Middleton, and Jocelyn Young; great-grandchildren Ricky Cox, Jaxton Kibler, Grayson Stocksdale, Ridge Weaver, Sage Weaver, and baby Jade due in August; his sisters Jane (Robert) Kopp of Loudonville and Sandy (Ken) Scheck of Centerburg; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
