Robert “Bib” A. Young

March 27, 1946 ‒ July 12, 2020

Perrysville, Ohio

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.

Bib was preceded in death by his parents.

I remember while practicing for one Minstral he was determined to have the chorus sing a version of “The Battle Hymn” that we always sang at church ….. I was sceptical but working together with him we taught it to the chorus for the Minstral and it was fabulous!!!! A wonderful memory of Bibber for me!!!! Hugs and prayers for your family

  • I always remembered the times when it was your turn to have Christmas lunch What a feast that was. All the homemade dishes. Sitting and sharing about everyone’s lives and lots of singer. If the weather was nice enough, we tried sled writing or having a good ole snowball fight. I am sorry for your loss , but he is home with his Lord and Saviour. Sure miss seeing this side of the family. God Bless each and everyone of you.

  • So sorry for your loss, and a great loss to our communities. Bib was a wonderful man to all, always sharing his smile and laughter with everyone he met. Terry and I always enjoyed Bib and his stories and his voice. Thoughts and prayers.

  • My condolences to Bob’s family and friends on his passing. We were classmates in high school and I remember Bob as a fun guy who always had a smile on his face and a good word for anyone he met. While both of us went our separate ways after graduation, and eventually lost touch, it is not difficult to see that Bob will be sorely missed by his friends and family who were blessed with his generosity and good humor over the years. Be like Bob.

  • worked with Bib ar the pottery. his comic relief got us through the daily grind. he will be missed.

  • Stacie and Family,
    Bob and I dug fox holes with tunnels and had Sterno can heat in them for our winter get-a-ways. We built a tree hut and turned it into a second home away from home. The best memory was our new Mustangs! Bob and I were the first two in Loudonville to have them. The memories go on and on! We had the greatest times as two kids growing up on East Main St. Bob was a cousin, but more like a brother. RIP Bob!
