Owls Head — Scott Winfield Young, 62, died following a long, courageous battle with cancer, Sunday, June 4, 2017, at Sussman House in Rockport.

Born in Rockland Dec. 16, 1954, he was the son of Robert and Lillian Grierson Young.

Scott graduated from Rockland District High School in 1973. He later enlisted in the Navy. Following his honorable discharge, he worked various jobs.

In his earlier years, Scott enjoyed motorcycle and horseback riding. He had a lifelong love of mackerel fishing and could often be found at McLoon’s Wharf in Spruce Head. He was well liked by many friends.

He was a devoted son and brother, and since his father’s passing in 2011, he had spent hours caring for his mother’s property. He meticulously kept the lawn mowed and the gardens maintained.

Scott had a great sense of humor that brought a smile to and brightened the day of everyone he came in contact with.

Predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Clyde and Dorothy Young; his maternal grandparents, Chester and Marcia Grierson; and his father, Robert L. Young, in 2011, Scott is survived by his mother, Lillian G. Young, of Rockland; his children, Bridget, Christopher, Amanda and Joseph; his sisters, Cheryl Young of Windsor, Valerie Sanborn and her husband, Fred, of Waldoboro, Tina Jones and her husband, Gary, of Cushing; his grandchildren, several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends.

Scott’s family would like to thank the staff at Sussman House who made his last days so comfortable and for all the love and care they gave.

A celebration of Scott’s life will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 14, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock St., Rockland. The Rev. Wayne Sawyer will officiate. Interment will follow at Village Cemetery, South Thomaston.
