Robert Young, IV Obituary

Robert Ellison Young, IV, of Gauley Bridge, WV and originally from Red Springs, NC, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, February 18, 2024. Memorial services will be held at Alloway Cemetery in Red Springs, NC on Sunday, February 25, 2024 at 2PM.

Rob is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart, Edwina of Gauley Bridge, WV; his son, Christopher and wife, Mollie of Charlotte and their two daughters, Ellie and Emma; his sister, Kimberly Hair of Red Springs; his brother, David and wife Shannon of Grand Ledge, MI; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert Ellison Young, III and mother, Sandra Overstreet Young.

Rob was born on July 22, 1964, and if you were fortunate enough to know him, you know that he truly loved his family and friends. Growing up in Red Springs he developed many relationships with people that still call him a friend to this day. Despite living life big like there was no tomorrow, he genuinely cherished time with family. No matter what was going on in his life he always looked forward to family trips, especially those to the beach or Cumberland Island. It was generally during these trips and time together with family that he would bless everyone with one of his famous one-liners. To most people these made no sense at all, but to those closest to him they mean so much more and are still quoted to this day. As he once said at the end of one of our Cumberland vacations and what we know he would say now, “The party’s over, call it a day.” Rest easy on your eternal vacation.

Memorials can be made on behalf of Robert E. Young, IV to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
