Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
July 29, 1920

OBITUARY ~ WILLIAM ANDREW YOUNG

Our community was surprised and shocked on last Friday afternoon when the report went around of the death of Wm. A. Young, at the home of his brother Howard, southeast of town. While it was known that Mr. Young had been in poor health for some time, there had been no reason to expect that death was near. He had been sitting in a chair, and seems to have died without any warning whatever at about two o'clock. Deceased was the oldest of the family of brothers and sisters, being past sixty-two at his death.

OBITUARY ~ WILLIAM ANDREW YOUNG

William Andrew Young was born in Page County, Iowa. November 14, 1857, and died at his home southeast of Clearfield, July 23rd. 1920, aged 62 years, 8 months, and 9 days. He was the oldest son of Robert and Sarah Young. His parents, one brother Thomas R., and sister Mattie having preceded him, leaving three brothers, F. N. of Ralston, Wyoming; Robert M. of Los Angeles, California; and H. H. of Clearfield, and a number of other relatives and friends.

He was a member of the Clearfield United Presbyterian Church. He was born and reared in the Covenanter Faith and memorized many Scripture verses, particularly the Psalms and the Shorter Catechism as was the splendid custom in that home. He was of a quiet and unassuming disposition, and was a great man for home. Honest and upright in character, he was respected by all who knew him. He was a man of many friends, a man of few words.

This was the first summer in 52 years, that he missed farming. He was a very healthy man until his illness which began about Easter of this year. The end came suddenly. The step between him and death was quickly taken, we know not what a day may bring forth. "The will of the Lord be done. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord."

The funeral services were held on Thursday. July 29th at the United Presbyterian Church, the pastor, S. Boyd Johnson officiating. The mortal remains of the deceased were then laid to rest in the Clearfield Cemetery.
