William Henry Young, 46
Sydney Mines

With broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of William (Bumper) Henry Young, at home, on Saturday, March 26, 2016.
Born in North Sydney on June 5, 1969, he was the son of Henry and Jane (Devoe) Young of Millcreek.
William was a 3rd Class Power Engineer, an accomplishment he was very proud of. But most of all, he was very proud of his family and especially his son, and enjoyed spending time fishing, at basketball, or any sporting event he was involved in.
William leaves behind his partner and best friend, Frances, son Cody (Amanda Day), granddaughter Harlee, who was his special joy in life, and granddaughter Aurora, yet to be born. He is also survived by his sisters; Marlene (Basil Burton), Port Hawkesbury, Marie, Mill Creek, Heather, Newmarket, Kathy (Mark Boudreau), Mill Creek, Shirley (Jason Jessome), Millville, grandparents Wilfred and Ann Devoe, George’s River, and a number of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was predeceased by his grandparents Henry and Thelma Young.
He will be sadly missed for all the laughter and joyous memories that he gave us. William will be forever in our hearts.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation will be held in J. M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main St., Sydney Mines, on Sunday, April 3, 2016, from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. A celebration of his life will be Monday, at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph Church, Bras d’Or, with Fr. Peter McLeod officiating. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com

My sincerest condolences to you and yours. I remember Bumper for being the most supportive person, inspiring a group of teenagers in his earlier years to continue practising guitar and showing us his abilities. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.
