Clayton J. Young
Clayton J. Young, a lifelong Rhinelander resident, passed away peacefully at home at the age of 79 on Aug. 13, 2021.
Clayton, a devoted husband and father, is survived by his sweetheart of 59 years, Judy (Dumpprope) Young; daughter Linda (Mark) Bennett, Oregon, Ill.; sons Brian (Diane) Young, Rhinelander, and Kevin Young, Wausau; sister, Vivian Colvin, Ooltewah, Tenn.; brother-in-law, Don Short; and his grandchildren, Clayton Wisnewski, Tommy Raith, Megan Young, Travis Young, Courtney Warren, Kayla Bennett.
He is also survived by his six great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Roland and Ruth (Shattuck) Young; sister, Carolyn (Len) Squire; brother, Alan (Carolyn) Young; and sister; Cleo (Don) Short.
Clayton, a Brewers fan who acquaintances could always recognize by his Greek fisherman's hat, retired from Print Pack in 2004 after 38 years of service. He was a kind and simple man who loved music, often playing his favorite gospel and country songs by ear for hours on his guitar or keyboard.
He loved to read and listen to westerns from his favorite authors, Louis L'Amour and William Johnston, research his family history, relax on his deck enjoying the hummingbirds, and keep up with the doings of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, of whom he was very proud.
Visitation for Clayton will be held on Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. with memorial services following at 11 a.m., all at the Carlson Funeral Home. You may leave your private condolences for the Young family at www.carlsonfh.com. Interment will follow in the Forest Home Cemetery.
The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is serving the Young family.
