Thomas J. Young

YOUNG Thomas J. age 69, resident of Newtown. Husband of the late Deborah (nee Frederick) Young. Son of the late Rudell A Young and the late Marie (nee Gravois) Young. Father of Dena Curless.

Grandfather of Brittany, Dylan, John, Tony and Cody Curless. Great-Grandfather of Jordan Hall and Amara Curless. Tom passed away unexpectedly as he began another adventurous trip out west. Tommy Joe was a talented artist, skilled craftsman, and beloved by all that knew him. He was an avid book reader, graduate of Miami University, and had begun to study astronomy. His final trip was to explore the dark sky areas out west. We will all miss him and think of him as we gaze into the starry heavens. Rest in Peace, Tommy Joe Young. Family will receive friends Saturday, October 20th from 3 PM until 6 PM at Moundview Pavilion, 3130 Newtown Road, Newtown, OH 45244.

I often reflect on the week end trips with Tom and His Father to Travelers Rest, Ky. The place where Tom's Father grew up. The two kids we would hang out with there, Harlan and Peezer. Many life lessons were learned on those trips. You will be always with me. Thank you Tom. Russ Stradtman

You'll be missed dearly my friend.

Tom was a miracle. To know him and be loved by him was miraculous. I'm desperate to sit across from Tom at his kitchen table again, talk politics, listen to stories about his great-grandson and most importantly laugh. I'd like one more trip to his garage to see the latest modifications made to the camper. Was he ever NOT creating something? Tom was rare, like a diamond in the rough, the proverbial needle in the haystack. He's like David Bowie in my mind as in other-worldly. So unique he almost seemed immortal. Tom exuded the best of humanity. He was kind, loving, curious, creative, funny, fair, wise, open and most of all non-judgemental. And let's not forget smart. His intellect was insatiable and that lead him to the stars. His final journey. I hope you're among the stars now my friend, floating through the Milkyway.

I am so sorry for your loss. As you think of Tommy and how he touched your lives may you find comfort in the fact that God also remembers his life. For God is not unrighteous to forget his works and the love he showed. (Hebrews 6:10)
