William Aloysius Young Obituary

William Aloysius Young, affectionately known as Willie to all who adored him, 75 of Lexington Park MD, departed this life peacefully on Wednesday, May 08, 2024 at his residence. Willie was born on September 19, 1948 to the late William B. Young and Lucy T. Garner. He completed his education in the St. Mary’s County Education System, graduating from Chopticon High School.


In 1970, Willie joined the US Army and was honorably discharged April 1,1974. Upon discharge from the Army, Willie began employment with Club Properties Management (better known as Flat Tops). William was known as a jack of all trades and could fix any and everything. Willie retired in 2015, and kept in close contact with his boss, Don Megby.


Along with his love of watching old westerns, you would also find him sitting and watching his favorite football team, the Washington Commanders (Redskins). Willie’s hobbies included anything to do with the outside, listening to music and going to the racetrack. On the weekends, he was sure to be spending time with his friends, too many to name. “You all know who you are” one thing for certain, everyone loved coming to Willie’s house; you knew a good time would be had.


William is preceded in death by his parents, William B. Young and Lucy T. Garner; the love of his life, Mary “Ella”; son, William D. Young; Special Aunt, Catherine Bowman, and brothers, Francis E. Young and Thomas L. Young.


Willie and “Ella” spent 43 loving years together; had two sons, William Ford, and Eric Young. From a previous marriage, he had two boys, Warren Young (Kimmy), and Dwayne Young; five stepchildren, Gwennie Dorsey (Gerald), Kennie A. Rodgers, James Ford (Barbara), Gershia Nelson (Walter), and April Blair (Steven); six grandchildren, Davonna Young, Jakari Young, Dasani Young, Michael Ford, Devin Young, Khyri Wells and many step grandchildren; God Children, Francis Stewart, Anthony Swales, Johnny Bowman, and Ebony Kelsey. Also, left to cherish his memories are his brother, William B. Young; his sister, Rose Short; his sons, Warren Young, Dwayne Young, William Ford, Eric Young; stepchildren, Gwennie, Kennie, James, Gershia, April and a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren; sister-in-law, Thelma Ford Curtis and brother-in-law, Charles Ford.


Family and friends will unite on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 for visitation at 10 a.m. until time of service at 11 a.m. at Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home, 38576 Brett Way, Mechanicsville, MD.  Interment immediately following the service at 1:45 p.m. at Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery, 11301 Crain Highway, Cheltenham, MD 20623.
