Paul Young Sr.
Paul M. Young Sr., 75, of Plains Township, passed away, July 19, 2022, at the Veterans Administration Medical Center, Wilkes-Barre.
Paul was born in Kingston, but resided at Lake Silkworth before moving to Plains. He was the son of the late Frank and Patronella Young.
He was a graduate of Lake Lehman High School, class of 1965 and vocational school with a degree in electrical technology.
Prior to his retirement from Intermetro, he worked construction through local unions.
Paul proudly served in the United States Army and was honorably discharged after his term of service.
He was a member of Saints Peter and Paul Church, Plains.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents; brother Frank; brothers-in-law William Zavada, James Zavada, and Thomas Hischar.
Paul is survived by his wife of 45 years Mary Ann, who was always by his side. His son Paul and companion Ann Souchak and her son Dakota. Paul was his father's "rockstar". He was always happy to hear him play and see him at his shows. Dakota came into his life at four years old a "firecracker", but always put a smile on his face.
His son Brian and wife Jen, who live in Boise, Idaho, was his "fixer-up man". They would try to figure out projects that Brian had called on the phone or Ipad, they would talk it through and they would figure it out.
Paul was a very proud grandfather to Samantha and Dylan who came in from Idaho in June to see him at the nursing home. They were his pride and joy.
Paul is also survived by his sister Karen, Delaware; sisters-in-law Joni Zavada, Nancy Zavada, Mary Young; brother-in-law John Zavada. Also several nieces and nephews, especially Lisa Zavada, his football betting buddy. Together they shared a special relationship.
The family would like to thank the entire staff at River Street Manor for the last three years. They were always there for Paul and made him feel at home.
