In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Rebecca Young Duke, of Lebanon, and Deborah Young Petty, of Northumberland; one granddaughter, Miranda Dagle Sandstrom, of Elizabethtown; one grandson, Jeffrey Duke, of Lebanon; one great-grandson, Derick Sandstrom; one sister and brother-in-law, Gladys Young Magill and John, of Danville; one sister-in-law, Romayne Gautsch Young, of Williamsport; and nieces and nephews.
