James H. Young, Jr. 87, of Warren, PA, passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, in Kinzua Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Warren.

Born in Pittsburgh, PA on July 24, 1936, Jim was the son of the late James H. and Lillian S. Young. He grew up in Parkersburg, WV and Bradford, PA, graduating from Bradford High School in 1954. He attended Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA, then served for two years in the U.S. Navy, wherein he was a member of the Naval Cadet Choir. He married the love of his life, Mary Kay Young, on February 27, 1960. He pursued a career in banking, during which time he was employed by, among various other financial institutions, Northwest Savings & Loan and as Branch Manager of First Federal Savings & Loan in Warren. Jim was a member of First Lutheran Church for 50 years.

A very adept athlete, Jim could frequently be found golfing at the numerous courses around Warren. When his sons were growing up, he spent a great deal of time throwing the baseball, football, or hitting fly balls to the neighborhood boys. He could thread the eye of a needle with a football from 30 yards.

Jim was a kind and good man, who was honest to a fault and whose family always mattered most. His presence in this world will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his wife Mary Kay Young, two sons, James H. (Judith) Young, III, New York, N.Y, and Michael D. (Leslie) Young, Fairport, N.Y., his four grandchildren, Genevieve and Archibald Young, of New York, NY, Whitney and Andrew Young of Fairport, NY, his sister, Nancy Newman of Pittsburgh, PA, his sister-in-law, Maggie Frampton and partner Barbara Ladabouche of Montpelier, VT., and nieces and nephews, William, Elizabeth, Carolyn, Wendy, and Jonathan.

In addition to his parents, James was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, William Newman and in-laws, Morgan, and Margaret Frampton

Special thanks go out to the fine folks at Kinzua Care for their support in the final months of Jim’s life.
