George A. Young, loved the outdoors

February 17, 2021

George A. Young completed his earthly journey Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021, in the emergency room of Beebe Healthcare, Lewes.  He was born Aug. 28, 1932, in Johnstown, Pa., the son of George F. and Bertha B. Young.

George was active in community activities and was always available to help where needed.  He served two years in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict, stationed in Germany. He served as master of the Masonic Lodge, was a member of the Lord Baltimore Lions, and was both a deacon and an elder in the Presbyterian Church.  

George loved the outdoors, and had many interests: golfing, fishing, gardening and hunting. As a member of the Indiana Bear Club, where he hunted deer, he helped maintain the camp, and enjoyed fellowship with the guys.  Caning furniture was a favorite hobby.

George was employed by AT&T; when he retired, travel was high on his list of joys.  

George is survived by Elsie, his wife of 62 years; his son David and wife Katie; two grandsons, Taylor and Rob; a brother, Bill and wife Judy; and by nieces and nephews.

A family service will be held at Ocean View Presbyterian Church (Delaware), Saturday, Feb. 20, at 1 p.m.  The service will be livestreamed online.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Ocean View Presbyterian Church, or to the Indiana Bear Club Tree Fund.
