He confessed Christ at an early age and served on the Deacon Board at his present church, Providence Missionary Baptist Church.
Clyde was a 1975 graduate of Mt. Hope High School where he excelled in football, baseball and basketball. He later coached his children in these areas. Clyde was one of eight siblings.
He was married to his devoted wife, Loretta Turney-Young and to this union they had two sons: Clyde Young, Jr. and Christopher Blake Young.
He was preceded in death by his parent and stepfather; a brother, Charles Young and a sister, Syble Young.
Clyde leaves to cherish his memory: his devoted wife of 25 years, Loretta Turney-Young; two sons, Clyde Young, Jr (Sunny) of Moulton, and Christopher Blake Young (Kendra) of Decatur; blessed with four grandchildren, Khyla Jane’e Young, Lunden Alyse Young, Carter Wayne Young and Jordyn Resse; six siblings, Doris Taylor (Keith), Aliquippa, PA, James Otis Young, Pittsburgh, PA, Mildred Gholston, Trinity, AL, Yvonne Gholston, Birmingham, AL and Sampson Gholston (Tracy), Madison, AL; and a host of other relatives and friends.
His friends will tell you he’s in a better place. The rest will tell you he’s joking on everyone in Heaven. Nevertheless, he’s stress-free and at peace. We most cherished his sense of humor. He always had a name for everyone and a joke to go along with it. We will truly miss his wit and special sense of humor. We loved you.
