Details: Robin Patrick Young, 64, of Bakersville, died at Brookside Rehab and Care on Saturday, April 12, 2014. Robin was preceded in death by his parents, Marie Summerlin Young Swatzburg and Beryl W. Young and step father, Leo Swatzburg. He was a member of Martins Chapel United Methodist Church, though he attended many other congregations where he was honorary choir director.
He is survived by his brother, Pete and wife Ann of Houston, TX; sisters: Shelly Ray of Newdale and Yvonne Boone of Bakersville; his favorite people in the world and best friends: Chris, Lisa, Whitney and Zachary Boone. He is also survived by two aunts, one uncle, numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, and all his friends from the Mitchell Group Home and Mountain Opportunity Center.
Robin never knew a stranger. He greeted everyone with a smile, a wave, a "yoohoo" or a hug wherever he went. He was a true lady's man and flirt, right down to blowing kisses or kissing you on the hand. Robin could out dance anyone at anytime and didn't sit down until the last song was played. Robin's needs were simple and perfect: a string to make a twirler with, a can of Mtn Dew, and wrestling on TV. He was always happy and a true blessing to his family and all who knew him.
Come and celebrate his beautiful life with us at 2:00 pm on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 in the chapel of Henline-Hughes Funeral Home with G.E. Freeman officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Burial will follow in the Will Young Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made in Robin's honor to Hospice and Palliative Care of the Blue Ridge or to The Run for Holland.
The family wants to thank everyone who cared for Robin and who has been a part of his wonderful life
