Obituary for Larry Woodrow Young

Larry Woodrow Young was born in Dayton, OH to Jean and Woodrow Young. He was raised in Huber Heights and was a graduate of Wayne High School (71). He attended Bowling Green State University and majored in Geo-Chemistry. During his time at BGSU, he was enrolled in the Army ROTC, enrolled in active duty for 3 summers, and was medically discharged prior to receiving his 2nd Lieutenant’s bars. He found the “love of his life”, Mindy Sue Clingenpeel, at BGSU and ROTC in 1974. They were married September 6, 1975 in Bowling green, OH., where they lived for 2 more years. He moved to Berea, OH. and finally purchased his first home and moved to Cleveland, OH. in 1979 where he lived until moving to Amherst, OH. in 2001. In 2007, following kidney failure, he was lucky to receive the gift of life through a kidney transplant at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Survivors include his wife of 45 plus years Mindy (nee Clingenpeel) daughter, Jennifer Elizaabeth (Robert J.) Goodall; son Kevin Michael (Ashley Burns) Young; grandchildren, Annabella Elizabeth Goodall, Edison Alexander Young and Julian Arthur Young. He is also survived by his “troublesome”, but dearly loved, older sister Sheryl Young and a younger sister, Arlene. Larry loved boating, fishing, and raising tropical fish. He always looked forward to spending time on his family’s farm, fixing cars, and most of all spending vacation times with the “wife and kids” in the Poconos or at Chautauqua lake. He was a history and science buff until the end, collected gems and fossils, was an avid reader of National Geographic.
