Obituary

Anthony “Tony” Young was born to Charles and Patricia Young on June 12, 1965. He was a protector and loved his family. Growing up he enjoyed hanging out at the South End Boys & Girls Club. Tony enjoyed singing and dancing. Later he joined a group the Transitions where he performed at various venues for several years throughout Boston.

In 1979 he lost his mother at the age of 14 and it had a profound impact on him. He later became an Uncle and helped his family overcome the great lost. Anthony worked at various jobs throughout the years including the South End Community Health Center before he moved to Worcester, Massachusetts where he spent a great number of years.

He later met Joan and they lived happily together until his passing. While living in Worcester he secured a position working at a Car Wash as a Manager. Tony spent a lot of time with his great nieces and nephews in Worcester who referred to him as “Pop Pop.”

Tony enjoyed spending time with his family on holidays and he always had to take leftovers home. He never forgot to bring his own containers because he enjoyed his sister’s home cooking. He also enjoyed hanging out with his big brothers Kevin and Troy, whom he admired and respected. Troy and Tony were inseparable growing up, almost like they were twins. Although his siblings were scattered, he always came home to visit his family.

Tony always enjoyed the finer things in life. He loved to get dressed up. His style of dressing was to color coordinate from head to toe. He was sharp as a tack.

Tony is survived by his sisters - Cheryl, Michelle, Linda (deceased), Aletrus (deceased), Charlene (husband Maurice), Tonya, Sharita, and Keisha; brothers – Kevin (wife Petrina), Troy, Charles Young Jr.; Nephews: Andrew, Paris, Alan, David Jr, and Kemoni; Nieces: Sheriece, Ashanti, Jamila, Jade, Tasha and Aletrus; stepmothers - Stella Young and Evelyn Cartwright.

He has an abundance of great nieces and nephews, aunts and cousins – cousin Paul Dorsey; uncles -Edward Elliott (wife Antoinette), Uncle Lewis and Uncle Curtis. He’s also survived by his best friend Dexter Newsome and goddaughter Naveah, and his long-time partner, Joan Correira.
