Jeffrey Young

Jeff passed in peace at the age of 67. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Vivian, his parents Paul and Jean Young, and his brother Dave Young.

Jeff was a loving father of Sam Young and Joanna Nesgoda (Young), and a proud grandfather of Peyton Young.

He was a brother of Russ Young, Mike Young, and Steve Young. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and wonderful friends.

Jeff was born in Akron, Ohio on September 23, 1951 and grew up in Marion, Ohio. He was a graduate of Manchester College in Indiana and moved to Orofino, Idaho with his wife after college to start his family.

Jeff will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father and husband. He was a good listener, a skilled sarcastic commenter, and an avid sports fan. He enjoyed nature, reading, news and politics, touring national parks, visiting his children, and playing with his granddaughter.

A private service will be held in Orofino for close relatives and friends, and a larger memorial with family will be held in Ohio.
