Melvin R. Young

Melvin R. Young, 63, of King George County died after a courageous struggle with cancer. He went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, July 20, 2013.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, he moved to Virginia with his family shortly after his birth and has lived in his adopted state since that time. He was a U.S. Army veteran, serving his country in Korea.

He spent his life working as a mechanic, able to repair anything that ran, whether it used diesel, gas or electricity. He loved boating, fishing and being with family and friends. Melvin was the brother that we all would hope to have in this life.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond Young and Mary Maureen McCann Young; and by his beloved fiancee, Bernice Mason.

He is survived by his brothers, Raymond J. Young (Barbara) of Lehigh Acres, Fla., David P. Young of Fredericksburg and Patrick A. Young of Bowling Green. He is also survived by his niece, Olivia C. Young; nephew David P. Young Jr.; and cousins Carolyn Solomon of Alexandria, John McCann of Sykesville, Md., and Robert McCann.

A memorial service will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 25, at Mullins & Thompson Funeral Service, Fredericksburg Chapel, 1621 Jefferson Davis Highway.

Interment will be private.
