Obituary for Ronnie Young

Mr. Ronnie Reid Young, Sr., age 72 of Carrollton, Georgia died Friday, June 2, 2017.

Mr. Young was born in Carroll County, Georgia on October 29, 1944, the son of the late Arlie Vester Young and Alma Inez Reid Young.

He was a 1962 graduate of Carrollton High School and had a long and successful career in Georgia Parks and Recreation. .Mr. Young served as director of Carrollton Parks and Recreation for 33 years, Bremen Parks and Recreation for five years and Sandy Springs Parks and Recreation for nine years. He was a member of Kiwanis Club, Georgia Parks and Recreation Association for 50 years and Tabernacle Baptist Church where he served as the director of Sports and Recreation.

Outside of work, Ronnie enjoyed golfing and bass fishing, two of his favorite hobbies. His time with “his buddies”, often meant time with his sons, Ron, Zack and Reid.
He was a people person, an enthusiastic Papaw and a life-long Auburn fan. However, his youngest child, Reid, converted him to a “dawg” for a few years.

We will miss his sweet nature, his witty sense of humor and his encouragement most of all.

Young; children and their spouses, Ronald Reid (Meredith) Young, Jr. of Navarre, Florida, Kathryn Elizabeth (Ray) Carey of Raleigh, North Carolina, Zachery BrannanYoung of Carrollton, Reid Crafton Young of Carrollton, Allie Elizabeth Fulcher of Winston, Amy Jean Smith of Villa Rica, Ashley Beck (Jason) McMichael of Weaver, Alabama; grandchildren, Hali, Kane, Mara, Olivia, Tayler, Bebe, Elijah, Blaze, Edward, Blakley, Kathryn, Audrey, Jace, Gigi, Maddie, Bryce and aunt, Syble Reid.
