Carroll A. Young
Carroll A. Young, 93, passed away in his favorite recliner at his home on October 16, 2020.
He was born on April 13, 1927 in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia to Maude and George Young.
He graduated from Berkeley Springs High School in 1945.
Carroll (also known as Bing) met his wife of 68 years, Isabella Rockwell Young, in high school.
Shortly after, he served in the Army in post-war Germany. Then, he began working for the Pennsylvania Glass Sand Corporation and retired after 41 years.
In his free time, he enjoyed rabbit and squirrel hunting, fishing, played amateur local baseball for 5 years, coached Little League baseball, was president of the BSHS Band Boosters, and was a member of American Legion Post 60.
Carroll enjoyed the pleasure of his family, friends and neighbors. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved kidding around and connecting with others.
His memory was off the charts and he shared many of his life stories over the years. He was incredibly supportive of Isabella’s hobbies after his retirement. He & Isabella enjoyed dining out, dancing, and visiting his family. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife to Europe on a couple of trips; and in later years, they enjoyed bus trips within the United States. He was a wonderful, animated conversationalist; enjoyed daily walks for many years; read his newspaper daily from cover to cover; and liked watching football & baseball on television.
He loved his children Norman and Diana, and they kept in close contact with him throughout his life. He was a member of the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church and was instrumental in the development of the church addition.
He is survived by his son Norman (Linda), his daughter Diana (Ed), his grandchild Jason (Tammy), and his great grandchildren Wyatt and Weston Mullins.
Carroll was predeceased by his wife, Isabella, his parents, his siblings and his granddaughter Amanda Mullins.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private burial was held, and a celebration of his life will occur at a future date.
