EDMOND —     Harold Lee Young, 83, was born October 22, 1929 in Rocky Ford, Colo. to Henry and Louise Young.  The family moved to Wichita, Kan. in 1931.  Harold attended Wichita schools where he lettered in gymnastics and was a state champion wrestler.  He graduated in 1947 and went to work for Boeing Aircraft until 1951, when he enlisted in the U.S. Army.  He served with the 82nd Airborne and 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment in Korea and Japan.  He was discharged in 1954.  

    Prior to enlisting, Harold met his beautiful and everlasting wife, Aileen. “She was the cutest and best girl that I had ever known.  I liked her better than P-51’s.”  They were married on May 14. 1953.

Young Inc.  He retired in 1998.

    Harold L. Young was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, an avid golfer, a Harley rider, a pilot, a great cook, a cancer survivor and a great friend to many.  

    He is preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Louise Young, his infant son, Baby Harold and his sister Betty Bogue.

Young; his daughter Cynthia and her husband Terry Trammel;  his son Daniel and his wife Becky Young; his grandchildren Carly, Trevor and Corbin Shanklin, Jacob Moss and Tyler Young; his great-grandchildren Makenna Moss and Bryleigh Shanklin.
