Joseph Young

d. August 28, 2019

Joseph Young, age 38, entered into Eternal Rest suddenly on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at his Bridgeport Residence. He is the beloved husband of Tina Young. Joseph was born in Bridgeport, CT; son of Kathy Wheeler and the late Richard A. Young, Sr. He will be remembered as a lovable "teddy bear" with an amazing personality and a smile that could light up a room. Joseph was always available for and protective over those he loved. This "Gentle Giant" was a fantastic mediator, always full of compliments and never passed judgment onto anyone. He loved to watch, play and coach football; and especially root for his beloved NY Giants. Joseph also loved playing video games, but most of all he cherished every moment he spent with his children. Joseph is the loving father of Jocelyn and Vincent Young; the caring brother of Richard A. Young, Jr., Heather Nicole Young, David John Michael Young, Phillip Connor, Michael Young, Julianna Young, Corey Young, and Matthew Young. He is also survived by many other family members and friends that will sorely miss him.
