Thomas Patrick Young Obituary
Tom was born in Syracuse, New York on January 16, 1961 to Donald and Patricia Young. He passed away on June 2, 2018.
Tom graduated from BYU in 1983 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. He started his professional career at KSL-TV and continued in the video production industry at Video West Productions and Digital Bytes. He also worked at West Valley Hobbies, which allowed him to add to his vast collection of model trains. Tom was loved and respected by all those who were fortunate enough to know him through the years. His kind, gentle nature and warm sense of humor touched many lives. Tom taught ghost-hunting classes for several years for Granite School District and was a beloved figure in the paranormal community, graciously sharing his gifts with others. He studied Shamanism/Earth Medicine and that passion gave him great joy. Tom is preceded in death by his mother, Patricia, in 1995 and his father, Donald, in 1999. Tom is survived by sisters Mary Young-Lutz (Trent) and Karen Capone (Jim), brother Mickey Young (Holly), Uncle Richard Egerbrecht (Stacey) and several nieces and nephews. The family wishes to extend its sincere gratitude to Daryce Anderson for her love and care for Tom during his brief illness. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Huntsman Cancer Institute in memory of Thomas P. Young. It is Tom's wish that we remember him by demonstrating more love and kindness toward one another.
