Kevin C Young

November 24, 1952 — February 2, 2022

North Manchester

Kevin C. Young, 69, North Manchester, Indiana, passed away February 2, 2022, at his home. The son of Herbert “Bill” and Elizabeth Ellen (Riley) Young, Kevin was born in Cook County, Illinois on November 22, 1952. He was one of fourteen children.

After graduating from Manchester High School in 1971, Kevin worked at Peabody Seating Company in North Manchester for a short period before beginning his career as a truck driver. He worked for Cripe Transport and later drove for Genova for over thirty years.

When Kevin was younger, he played drums in the Freedom Band. He had a passion for music, especially classic rock. After his time in the band, Kevin became a homebody who enjoyed watching Indiana University, the Green Bay Packers, and the New York Yankees. He was a Sons of the American Legion member of Post 286 in North Manchester, Indiana. Kevin also had a fondness for fast cars, but nothing compared to his love for his grandchildren. On May 23, 1987, Kevin married Charlene “Charlie” Stratton. They each had two children prior to their union, forming a family together.

The loving memory of Kevin C. Young will be forever cherished by his wife, Charlie Young, North Manchester; son, Ted (Brandy) Young, Lafayette, Indiana; daughter, Heather (Brian) Wake, Warsaw, Indiana; stepson, Kenneth Lambert, North Manchester; stepdaughter, Teresa Lambert, Wabash, Indiana; eight grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and his many brothers and sisters.

A celebration of Kevin’s life will be held at a later date.
