Jack Young, 58, died at his home in Haines on June 10, 2017. There will not be a service, but his cremain's will be scattered at a favorite place of Jack's.
Jackie "Jack" Doil was born on April 29, 1959 in Augsburg, Germany to James "Jim" and Geraldine (Willhite) Young. Due to Jack's Dad, Jim, being in the service, he attended schools "everywhere," but graduated from Pine Eagle High School in Halfway, Oregon in 1977. Jack enlisted in the Army following high school.
Jack was married to Waynese "Tiny," and they had a son J.D. and a daughter Brandee. He later married Linda Wayne. A fond memory of the two of them, was their pet pig, which they fondly referred to him/her as "bacon." They later divorced. In 2001 he married Sharon Sorensen.
Jack was quite literally, a jack of all trades, he could do most anything. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, mushrooming, gardening and being with family. Jack loved the mountains, he especially enjoyed going to Big Bear to "cleanse his soul." He loved football, cheering on his favorite team, the New Orleans Saints. Jack was an adventurist and an individualist. It didn't matter if he had just met you or if you were family, he would always end a conversation when leaving with "love ya!"
He was preceded in death by his mother, son J.D. and nephew Jesse.
Jack is survived by his wife Sharon, daughters Megan and her husband Jacob Ruda, Brandee and her husband Rex Pierce and Amanda Springer; sons Luke and Lance McMillen, Mike Dover and Chris Graves; father Jim Young and his wife Delita Hohimer; 11 grandchildren; brothers James Young Jr. and Richard Young; sisters Nancy and her husband Jack Pfaff; numerous nieces and cousins.
