Ross “Butch” Young passed away bravely after sharing a parting glass of his favourite scotch with his family at the Owen Sound Hospital on Saturday September 30, 2017 following an 8-year battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Ross, 71, of Southampton, predeceased recently by his beloved wife, Linda, of 46 years, will be profoundly missed by his children Lisa (Michael) of Ottawa, Colleen of Toronto, and Nancy (Kim) of Ottawa. “Poppy” will also be greatly missed by his grandchildren Angelina, Zack and Jada of whom he was so proud. He is survived by his sisters Gerry, Wilma (Don) and Sharon (Lyle) of Sault Ste. Marie, his brother Wayne of Smiths Falls and his sister-in-law Nancy (Terry) of Brampton, as well as numerous nieces and nephews who will miss Uncle Butch dearly. A Hydro lifer, MacGyver of all trades, and all-around saint, Ross used his super powers to help anyone who needed it. He had a diverse set of skills borne of growing up on a farm on St. Joseph Island that covered nursing, singing, sewing, cooking, baking, maintenance, carpentry, and he was a creative electrician who had a remote for everything. EVERYTHING. We’ll be lucky if we’re not sitting in the sweltering dark for the rest of eternity. Quiet by nature, if you were paying close enough attention, he had a quick wit and sly sense of humour and was a master of the spoonerism. Like Linda, he loved to sing and was a devoted member of the Chantry Singers and Waterside. He volunteered with Meals on Wheels and the Bruce County Museum, raised money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and was a member of the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Board and Southampton Curling Club for many years. A visitation will be held at the Eagleson Funeral Home, Southampton on Friday October 13, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. A Memorial Service to Celebrate the Life of Ross Young will be held at the Southampton United Church on Saturday October 14, 2017 at 2pm. Interment of ashes at Hanover Cemetery will be held at a later date. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Southampton United Church, or to the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
