Eugene Wayne Young, 75, passed away peacefully on March 24, 2019 in Mesa, Arizona. He was born to Elmer Wilbur Young and Floy Ann Payne in Mesa, AZ on February 6, 1944. Wayne led a very happy, active life, filled with family and friends. Wayne was an avid hunter and loved to spend time in the woods. He loved scouting the Four Peaks area, riding around on his Polaris. Wayne loved fishing as well and was known to spend time tossing a line out anywhere the fish were plentiful. Wayne’s favorite times, though, were when he was spending time with his grandchildren.
Wayne was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Ann Young; his grandchild, Tysen Mason; and great-grandchild Martyn Law. He is survived by his wife, Diane Young; his siblings, Nancy Young and Diana Smith; his children, Stephanie Martin, Robert Coker, and Allen Young; his step-children, Rustie Law and Stan Law; his step-mother, Donna Young; 14 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
