William E. “Bill” Young, 77, passed away on Monday, May 2, 2022, at his home in Auburn.
He was born on Oct. 5, 1944, in Detroit, Michigan, to William H. “Bill” and Otelia “Tillie” (Schmidt) Young.
Bill graduated from Ashley High School.
He was a forklift driver for the Dana Corp in Auburn for 30 years, retiring in 1997.
Bill loved his family very much and could always be counted on to show up to help if there was any need.
He loved his long retirement and the freedom it gave him to allow life to slow down. He enjoyed going to Burger King for lunch almost everyday, and taking a ride on his motorcycle if there was any kind of sunshine outside.
Bill was always excited about playing dice or card games, fishing and golf.
He will be dearly missed!!
