Roger Dean Young, of Duchesne, Utah, 83, would like to tell you that his work
was completed on November 20, 2019. This cowboy was loved by everyone he knew. He received an offer that you can’t refuse, for a calling having him ride into the sunset and will not be returning. The sign-on bonus will be a reunion with family and friends, and a sweetheart of 60 years. His new mission will take him away from injury, pain and suffering to a place with many new adventures that this cowboy will enjoy. His
dedication to the Lord will take him into the arms of his Savior.
He started his work on November 15, 1936 in Fruitland, Utah with Robert Earl and Mariam Ivie Young.
We will remember his love for life, family, and friends. He loved being a

service to his family, friends, and church. He made a difference in the lives of
