Don Allan Young, a longtime resident of Stockdale, Texas, passed away Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011, at 1:05 a.m. in the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center in Seguin at the age of 73 years, 4 months, and 22 days. Don was born July 5, 1938, in Robstown to Ralph W.C. and Marguerite Simkins Young.

He was a 1956 graduate of Floresville High School. He graduated from Texas A&I University in 1962, receiving a Bachelor of Science in secondary education. He was a member of Tau Delta Chi fraternity. He was a retired teacher and bus driver in the Floresville Independent School District.

Don and his wife, Loretta, just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows Nov. 19 in the Selieg Room of the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center. The Rev. Stephen Echols, pastor of Christ United Methodist Church in Stockdale, performed the ceremony. Don had planned this renewal of vows for a long time and presented Loretta another wedding ring and her favorite flowers -- a dozen yellow long-stemmed roses, as a token of his love for her.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Don is survived by his beloved wife, Loretta Young of Stockdale; his son, Dwayne Young and wife Polly of Stockdale; his daughters, Karen Roland and husband Steve of Bellville and Lisa Cobb and husband Gregg of Grapevine; grandchildren Nicole Maucere and husband Craig, and Matthew Cobb, all of Grapevine, and fiancée Samantha Shackleford of Colleyville, Erik Cobb of Grapevine, Allison, Ashley, Heather, and John Roland of Bellville, and Garrett Faust of Stockdale; his brother, Ernest Young and wife Lorraine of Floresville; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and family.

Visitation will be held Thursday, Dec. 1, from 5-8 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in Stockdale.

A funeral service will be held Friday at 11 a.m. in the funeral home chapel, with the Rev. Stephen Echols officiating.

Interment will follow in the Stockdale Cemetery in Stockdale.
