Dear Barbara and Family,
Very sorry to learn of Tom’s passing. I remember the great times we had bowling together. We might have lost at the game but the laughs we had at the diner .... won the night. We will always remember him with love and a twinkle in our eye. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Love, Sheila and Tony.

My fondest memories of Mr. Tommy Young's is, when I was a little kid, maybe 6-7 yrs old. My Dad would say to me, "you want to take a ride, I'm going over to see Tommy Young's" and of course I would jump up and go.
Tom would have his muscle shirt on with the legendary baseball cap. and he would always be working on some cool car in the driveway. I thought Tommy Young's was the coolest guy around. and he was!
My heart felt condolences to the Young's Family.

Our Dads got along very well, with a beer now and then across the fence. I remember Chris and Joanie playing together...so many wonderful, happy memories of you all. God bless. XO

To the Youngs Family, my condolences in the loss of your loved one. I have the privilege of working with Kathy at Wells Fargo, and working in the close quarters that we do, it is hard not to overhear phone conversations. I have heard many conversations that Kathy had with her dad, many of which I have laughed at and we both have laughed at together, but it was very clear, Kathy loved her dad with all her heart. I will keep the family in my thoughts during this sad time.
