Unfortunately, tomorrow is never promised and for Terry Young, that was never more true in the early morning hours of September the 19th.
Terry had the heart of a lion, leaving his mark on everyone he came in contact with. He was as good a friend as anyone could ask for. Terry loved everyone.
He is survived by his sweetheart, his loving wife of 17 years, Elizabeth (Liz) Ann Young. He also left behind 4 amazing kids. Terry, 24, Aubrey, 25, Arron, 24, and Alexis, 22. His granddaughter, Olivia Grace Young, 6, and one grandchild on the way.
Terry served our nation in the U.S. Navy on a submarine from 1987-1990. Terry bumped around from Coca-Cola in Hagerstown, MD to Telefax in 2004 where he then met his wife, Liz. From there he worked at the Letterkenny Army Depot for a short time before finally accomplishing his dream of acquiring his CDL with Prime Inc. He traveled the country with his wife, then became a trainer where his mark was left on so many.
Terry left a lasting impression with so many people from the in-house employees to Prime’s students and their customers. He was a valued employee and gave everything he had to the trucking industry. In 2019 it was time to slow down, focus on his health, family and future. He moved from Chambersburg, PA to Pickens, WV and took up a job as a security guard with Cramer Security at the local coal mine.
Terry passed unexpectedly, having a heart attack shortly after returning home from the hospital. Terry did not have much financially or worldly possessions, but he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Terry blessed so many people.
It’s time we come together and find it in our hearts to give back. The funds received will all go to his wife Liz to cover any funeral expenses and keep her on her feet as Terry was the primary source of income for their household. God bless each and every one of you as we give back in memory of one amazing man, Terry Young.
In honoring his wishes, Terry will be cremated. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the funeral home to help with funeral expenses.
