Frederick James Young, 51, of Hope Hull, AL; passed away Wednesday, May 14, 2014. Freddie Retired after 27 Years from the ALDOT. He took extraordinary pride as a volunteer fireman with the Burkville Fire Dept. and working as an EMT with Care Ambulance. Even with all those responsibilities, he still found time to umpire High School and Dixie Youth League Baseball. As an extraordinary family man, and according to himself; a slayer of deer, fish, turkey, and any other critter that would fit in a frying pan; Freddie is an extremely loved husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, and Papa (to Logan). He loved and lived life to the fullest and lived by his motto "Worry less and fish more"; always armed with a giving heart, open arms, and a joke that could put a smile on anyone's face. Freddie will be dearly missed by everyone that knew him. He is survived by his wife, Sharron French Young; sons, Chris Gunter, and Preston L. Young; daughter, Anmarie Young Bruner (Adam); Grandson, Logan Bruner; sisters Michelle Young Lamkin (Russell) and Stephanie Irvine (Earl); father, Earl S.
