Obituary

Edward Herbert Young of Catskill, joined his Heavenly family on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at his home. He was 84.

Edward was born September 5, 1930 in Catskill to John Edward and Beaulah Mae Stead Young. He was the devoted husband for 59 years of Joan Woywod Young and father of Kathleen (Jerome) and Michael. He lived a life of service to others.

Ed was well known and respected as an excavating and dump trucking contractor. He retired as the Town of Catskill Superintendent and Secretary/Treasurer of the Greene County Town Superintendents of Highways Association. He was proud of the many improvements he made to roads and drainage sites and his leadership with the October 1988 snowstorm and 1989 tire fire.

His trucking career included the NYS Thruway, Cairo Bypass, Greene, Ulster, Columbia and Albany county projects. He operated the SnowGo for the Greene County Highway Dept. before the ski industry brought life to the mountaintop. This allowed the milk trucks to access farms with no means of communication if they had an emergency.

Not one to be idle, Ed began crafting wishing wells, light houses and bird houses as gifts for his family. He became an excellent cook and maker of apple pies. In retirement, he also enjoyed plowing his driveway and mowing his lawn. He belonged to the Catskill Elks Lodge #1341.

Grandfather of Christopher (Tammy) and Katrina Hendricks, Amber Young, John Herple, Brooke and Brock Baum; great grandfather of Bryce Hendricks and Ayla Van Kuren; brother and sister in laws Richard (Mona) Woywod,, Barbara (Raymond) Warringer and Ronald Welsh; favorite Uncle of Jack (Brenda) Lubera, Karen (Bruce) Meicht, Paul Lubera, Anita (Bill) Emery, Mark (Kathy) Lubera, Dale (Sandy) Lubera, Glen (Ann Marie) Lubera, Terri (David) Watts, Darla Young, Kimberly (Frank) Stieberitz, Valerie (Todd) Duckworth, Melissa Welsh, Jonathan Welsh, Margo (Walter) Moore, Eric (Donna) Woywod, Jennifer (Mark) Mooney, and Jason (Vikki) Waywood.
