Obituary for Alan Malcolm Frank Young

Alan Malcolm Frank  Young
Young, Alan
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alan Malcolm Frank Young on March 7th, 2019 at the Perth Hospital, he passed away peacefully surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 69 years. His sarcastic yet caring nature and incredible inner strength will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He was the beloved husband of Connie (Cooper) Young. Loving father of Tony (late Erin O'Brien), Amy (Steve) Schonauer and Chris Young (Krislyn Seward). He was the cherished grandfather to Cody Wright and Jacob Cooper, Peyton Schonauer and Tegan and Hazel Seward-Echlin. Alan is survived by his sisters Mary (Sonny) Lefebvre, Sandra (Rick) Marengere, Wendy (Douglas) Moraff, Grace (late Ken) Carter and Marlene Thomson. Predeceased by his parents Russell and Harriett (Wylie) Young and siblings Joyce and Angus Young. Fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, mother-in-law Lola Cooper and his extended family. He was a practical joker and many family members as well as friends were on the receiving end of his schemes. He always had a mischievous twinkle in his eye, a grin on his face and was quick to tease. Above all else he was a family man, a mentor and great role model for his children and grandchildren, a supportive husband and a hands-on Papa, sharing a strong bond with his grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by many family and friends. The family will receive relatives and friends at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W Perth on Monday, March 11th, 2019 from 4:00 to 8:00 P.M. Funeral service will be held in the Chapel on Tuesday at 10:00 A.M. followed by a reception at the Perth Legion, Branch 244. In remembrance, contributions to the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
