Obituary

Gerald A “Jerry” Young, 84, of Newburg, passed peacefully with his family by his side, on the evening of Friday, January 11, 2019, at the Carlisle Regional Medical Center.

He was born on December 10, 1934, in Englishtown, NJ, a son of the late Albert and Iris Griggs Young and married Diane M. Matyis on June 27, 1992, in Cranbury, NJ.

Gerald worked as an auto mechanic for the majority of his life. He worked in fleet maintenance for RCA, Princeton, NJ, for nineteen years and then at Princeton University, also in fleet maintenance, for thirteen years, retiring in 1999.

When he wasn’t working, Gerald and Diane enjoyed going to NASCAR races in their RV. The Monster Mile in Dover, DE, was his favorite track to travel to and Jeff Gordon was his favorite driver to watch race. Gerald also had quite a few classic cars, mainly Ford’s, and you could be sure to find him spending time working and making improvements on them.

He was a longtime member of the NRA, enjoyed square dancing, and listening to old country music. Gerald and Diane spent their honeymoon in Nashville, TN, so it was always a special place to travel back to.

In addition to his wife of twenty-seven years, Diane, he is survived by two daughters, Shelby C. Young and Amber M. Young, both of Newburg; and two nieces, Bonnie and Donna; and other relatives and friends from New Jersey.

In addition to his parents, Gerald was preceded in death by his brother, Raymond Young.

His funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, at the Fogelsanger-Bricker Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc., Shippensburg. Interment will follow in the Spring Hill Cemetery. Viewing will be one hour prior to the service on Wednesday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to the New Jersey School for the Deaf at 320 Sullivan Way, Ewing Township, NJ 08628.
