William Thomas Young

12 May , 192928 June , 2018

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our father, grandfather, brother and friend, William Thomas Young, on June 28, 2018 at the Northside Community Guest Home.

Born in Florence on May 12, 1929, he was the son of the late William and Catherine (Stubbert) Young.

Bill will be sadly missed by his daughters Debbie Dowling (Florence) Leah Ann (John) LeBlanc, Sydney Mines, grandchildren; Nichole (Brian, Halliday, Point Aconi, Jennifer (Brechan) MacAulay, Halifax, Jenna Leblanc and Evan LeBlanc of Sydney Mines, great-grandchildren; Avory, Jocelyn and Cassidy Halliday, Emmet and Lexi MacAulay. He is survived by daughter-in-law Dorothy Dolhanty, Hawaii, brother, Cyril Young, Cold Lake Alb.

Bill was predeceased by his wife of 64 years in December of 2017, Eileen (Briggs) Young, his son Billy, son-in-law, David Dowling, brothers Jim, Henry, and sister Mary Cassidy, brothers-in-law, Ernest Briggs, Robert Luker and Bob Cassidy.

Dad worked at the various mines for 50 years until his retirement. Dad loved his Bingo and his time spent at his cabin in Sugar Loaf where you would find him playing horseshoes; he could be found with his fishing Rod in hand, or playing a good ol’ game of cards, or just having a laugh with our cabin family.

Visitation will be from 7-9pm on Sunday July 1, 2018 at Fillmore & Whitman Funeral Home, 8 Clyde Ave, Sydney Mines. A graveside service will be on Monday at 10am in Brookside Cemetery with Rev. Stacey LeMoine officiating. If desired donations may be made in Bill’s memory to a charity of one’s choice. Expressions of sympathy can be forwarded to family by visiting

At this time the family would like to thank the staff of the Northside Community Guest Home, especially the staff at Cara House for the care and compassion you gave our Dad.
