Robert L. "Bob" Young, age 89, of Quincy, died Friday, March 13, 2020, at 7:24 am in Good Samaritan Home.

Bob was born July 9, 1930 in Quincy, Illinois, the son of Wesley and Hilda M. Hinds Young. He married Marjorie June Parrish on April 5, 1953 in Grace United Methodist Church in Quincy. She survives.

Bob was a 1948 graduate of Quincy High School. He served in the United States Army from July of 1948 until his honorable discharge in July of 1950. Bob had worked as a loan officer, and he retired from First Bankers Trust. Bob was very involved in church, and he served as a lay speaker for many years. Throughout his adult life, Bob had substituted as a preacher for many churches and nursing homes. He had also served on the board of directors for Good Samaritan Home.

After retirement, Bob worked for a shuttle service where he drove people back and forth between Quincy and St. Louis or Iowa City. Bob enjoyed traveling all across the United States in his camper. He was particularly fond of the American West. Bob was also a voracious reader, with the Western novels of Louis L'Amour being among his favorites.

My heartfelt condolences to the family. Mr. Young was my very first boss at Broadway National Bank in 1976, 77, and 78. He hired me and gave me every opportunity within the installment loans department to grow, learn, and challenge me. Some of the things I remember about him was his smile, his pipe, and his kindness. Rest In Peace Bob! ❤️

Best father-in-law a guy could ask for. A kind and gentle man who sincerely looked out for the best interest of others. His love for June and his family will always be remembered. This picture was taken 4 short years ago while on a family vacation on the Outer Banks.

June and Family - I am so very sorry for your loss. Bob was such a special man and a very dear friend. We shared many great conversations over the years. Bob was a great Board Member for us at Good Samaritan Home. He would always buy my Oatmeal cake at the Card Party so he could share it with his family. The last time I was back in Quincy, I visited with Bob at the home and we had a wonderful conversation. I am sorry that it will be our last conversation. Bob shared his faith with so many over the years. He was truly a blessing to so many people. I know he will be greatly missed. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

My condolences to the Young family. Bob and June lived next door to my family and I for most of my childhood. I have many fond memories of Bob and June. One of my favorites is getting the responsibility of picking up their mail and paper while they were on their many adventures! I also enjoyed ‘helping” Bob and my Dad with projects around the yard! RIP Bob.
