Robert J. Young Obituary

Robert J. Young


Age: 76 • Richmond


Robert J. Young died October 21, 2017 after a long illness.


Bob was a lifelong resident of Richmond, VT. He was born in Richmond August 1, 1941 to Harold and Bessie (Clark) Young. He was the 8th child to be born into what would later be a family of 11 children. 


Bob attend Richmond High School and spent his life working in and around Richmond. First, at the Richmond Cash Market as a butcher, and later as the Richmond Elementary School custodian beginning at the original school from 1974 to 2003. His retirement party was the highlight of his life and he cherished the memories and gifts from that time. Governor Douglas was there to declare the day as "Bob Day." 


Bob was always there for his family and for his friends. Family holidays and celebrations were a priority. When the days came where he could no longer physically help, he made it a point to visit, "like clockwork."


Robert is survived by his brothers Harold, of Richmond, Edward, of Essex, Richard, of Burlington, Raymond and his wife Jean, of Arizona, Larry and his wife Charlene, of Jericho, and his sister Patricia of Mesa, Arizona. Bob was predeceased by his sisters Dorothy, Ruth and Beverly and his brother Fred, sisters-in-law Pauline, Carol and Cecile, and brothers-in-law Eugene and Francis. He leaves behind a large family of nieces and nephews and many, many friends in Richmond, friends that he considered family. 


The family would like to thank the Richmond community for their care and respect given to Bob throughout his life, especially the road crew at the Town Garage. 


A service will be held at the Richmond Congregational Church on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 11am.
