Obituary for Kent Albert Young

Kent Albert Young, age 67, passed away on October 25, 2017 in Marblehead, Ohio following a 3-year battle with prostate cancer. Kent was born on March 21, 1950 in Dayton, Ohio to Albert and Roberta (Wolf) Young.

His father was a United Church of Christ pastor and Kent's early years were spent in Plattsburg, Ohio. The family later moved to Enon where Kent attended Greenon High School, graduating in 1968. He earned his B.A. at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio and his Master's Degree at Wright State University. Kent was a teacher in Greenon Local School District for 31 years. He taught 7th grade at Boone Station, Hustead and Indian Valley Schools. In 1986, he returned to Greenon and taught American Government until 2003. Kent was a gifted educator, fondly remembered by many of his former students. In retirement, Kent greatly enjoyed working at the Cedarville University Fitness Center. He also served as a statistician for the college basketball teams at their away games, a "fun job" that made the winter months bearable. An avid golfer, Kent was a regular at Locust Hills Golf Club for many years, playing in two leagues there. Kent was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and a faithful member of Southgate Baptist Church for more than half his lifetime. He served for many years as an usher in the balcony, another "fun job" that he truly enjoyed.

In addition to a host of friends, Kent is survived by his wife Amy (Lamb), whom he married on July 9, 1977, sons Aaron (Elizabeth), David, and Nathan (Windy), grandsons Lucas Boyd and Samuel Young, sisters Gloria Young and Sonja Smith, brother-in-law Ernie Lamb and his mother Roberta Young, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Albert Young and by a close friend, Al Thomas.

A gathering of family and friends will be from 11am to 2pm on Monday, October 30, 2017 at LITTLETON & RUE FUNERALHOME with a Memorial Celebration of Kent’s life beginning at 2:00 p.m. following visitation, with Pastor Eric Mounts officiating.

Memorial gifts in Kent's name can be given to Southgate Baptist Church or Stein Hospice. "... absent from the body, present with the Lord." 2 Cor. 5:8.
