Mr. Jeffery (Jeff) Young, 62, quietly departed this earth on Friday, September 11, 2020 after a battle with cancer.
Jeff was born September 23, 1957 in Alliance, Ohio. He was the second son born to the late Arthur Lee and Juanita Whitehurst Young.
After attending West Branch High School in Beloit, Ohio, Jeff searched for an adventure. He later joined the United States Navy where he received training as a support equipment aircraft lineman. Upon receiving an honorable discharge, Jeff returned to Alliance and worked at B&W Tubular.
Jeff loved the simple things in life. Growing up, he had a special bond with all his cousins on Courtney Road and developed a concern for the welfare of his family and community. Jeff loved visiting family and friends and spent his latter years volunteering in Canton’s church pantries to feed the homeless. His sense of humor and quick comebacks made him fun to be around. Jeff was also a good tennis player, enjoyed fishing and rooting for the Cleveland Browns.
He leaves to cherish his memory his daughter Tanisha (Jerome) Newman, two granddaughters, a supportive brother Bruce Young, nephew B.J. Crockett and his family, aunts, uncles, and a host of cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents, paternal grandparents Henderson and Addie Kirksey Young and maternal grandparents Isaiah and Viola Whitehurst and many beloved relatives.
The Family would like to thank the staff of Laurel of Canton for their care.
