We are eternally grateful for the 87 years that Jack Young was on this earth and the many years we shared with him. He had an endless thirst for knowledge, was well-read and had incredible discipline. He led a simple life, he sacrificed and worked tirelessly. He was a loyal friend and a kind person who always had wise words of advice and was willing to lend a hand. As a retired teacher, he spent his time building things, fixing things, growing fresh food in his garden and trying new recipes. He enjoyed jazz and a good gathering. He was always on the move and had such a strong presence and wasn't afraid to express his opinions. He also knew what it was like to go hungry in his lean days in Spanish Town, Jamaica where he was born, so we ask in lieu of flowers you make a donation in his name to the Daily Food using the link at the bottom of the page.
His wife Sylvia, his daughter and son, Renee and Karl and his grandson Ethan will strive to continue to live the values he upheld and will hold tightly to his memory in our hearts. We love you forever.
