YOUNG We regret to announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Jack Young, who went to be with his Lord and Saviour, surrounded by his loving family at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Thursday, March 16, 2006 at the age of 84 years. Jack was born on December 23, 1921 at Swalwell, Alberta to Ernest and Florence Young and raised in Swalwell by his Uncle Ian and Auntie Clara MacLennan. He joined the Loyal Edmonton Regiment in 1942 and served until 1945, when he received an Honourable Discharge to the Colonel Belcher Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Jack returned to the Swalwell Area until venturing to Red Deer in 1949 looking for work. In the fall of 1949, he met and then married Marjorie Webb. Jack was very active in the Moose Lodge, where he held many positions and honours. He had a heart of gold and a sense of humour to match his personality. Jack will be very sadly missed but lovingly remembered and forever cherished in the hearts of his family and dear friends. Jack leaves to mourn his loss, his loving wife of fifty-six years, Marjorie, sons, Douglas (Karen), Hal (Teresa), daughter-in-law, Brenda (Stephen) Burridge, son, Darren (Julie) and daughter, Patti (Ken) Soley, grandchildren, Nadine (Blaine), Tyler, Ian, Jami, Michael, Katy, Codi, Samantha, Stevie, Kyle, Robert, Kristen and Dirk and great grandchildren, Logan, Darian and Lucas.
