Obituary for Zane Talmadge Young

Zane Talmadge  Young
Mr. Zane Talmadge Young, age 86, passed from this life, on August 17, 2017 at his residence. He was born November 21, 1930 in Lawtell, Louisiana to Eldridge and Gussie Mattie (Brunson) Young.

He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for 26 Years, achieving the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. He worked as Vehicle Maintenance Supervisor before retiring from active duty. Within a year he transitioned to USAF Civil Service, Vehicle Maintenance Officer at England Air Force Base, Alexandria, Louisiana. His unit won several awards to include “Best in Air Force”. He retired when England AFB was closed in 1992.

Zane is preceded in death by his parents, Eldridge and Augusta Young; brother, Hubert Young (Marie); sister, Ruth Young Domingue (Henry); spouse of 25 years, Sylvia Quary Young.

Those left behind to cherish his memory are, his loving wife of 37 years, Pattsy Ruby Young; daughter, Susan Young Thomson (Scot); son, Philip Stuart Young; step-son, CMSgt. Anthony “Tony” Abbott (Lucy); step-daughter, Nicole “Nicki” Abbott Mitchell (Richard); granddaughters, Lynsey Lucile Abbott, Katherine “Katie” Nicole Mitchell, Sophia Mattie Abbott, and Madeline “Maddie” Marie Mitchell, and a host of family and friends around the world.

He was a fantastic cook and loved holding cookouts for friends and family, but his favorite pastime was spending special time with his children and granddaughters. His hobbies included restoration of antique vehicles, travel and camping.

Zane lived his life by one rule, do it right the first time! He was a role model for many to include his children, grandchildren and many men and women that he supervised in the military.

According to Zane’s wishes, cremation will occur and there will be a graveside service and burial on August 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. by Deacon Richard Mitchell officiating. Burial will be at the Church Point Methodist Church Cemetery, Church Point, Louisiana. In addition, there will be no visitation held at the funeral home.

Zane requests that memorials be made to the charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
