Leonard Lee Young, age 73 passed away on Monday February 3, 2020. Leonard was born Saturday March 16, 1946 in Norfolk, Nebraska to Dorothy and Frank Young.

He grew up in Osmond, Nebraska as the 2nd child of four.

Leonard Lee Young owned and operated his own trucking company for many years then went to work for Trac-Works till he retired. He was known to be a very hard worker and accomplished any goal he set for himself.

He was part of a Corvette club and he loved to drive and show off his Corvette. He was a walking map, he knew the directions to anywhere! He was as huge history buff and a John Wayne fan. He was a gambling man and often enjoyed going to the Casinos. He loved his home and one of his favorite places to be if not on the open road or with his family was sitting in the living room in his chair or in the kitchen drinking a cup of joe. The happiest Leonard was in life was with his family.

Any one who knew him knew he was a stubborn, opinionated and very stern man but had a big heart for the people he loved.

Leonard Lee Young will be greatly missed by many as a Father, Grandfather, Uncle and friend.

My Uncle lee was a strong man with a kind heart for helping others. He worked hard all his life providing for his family. He wasn't afraid to take chances and was a do it riht and do it your self type of man. He instilled into me a strong work ethic and never to live your beyond your means . One of my favorite and meaningful saying lee had to me was actions speak louder than words. He loved to play cribbage and chess we would play them for hours after a long day of work.
