William G. "Bill" Young Obituary
William G. "Bill" Young

- - "Those who live no more, whom we loved, echo still within our thoughts, our words and our hearts." William G. "Bill" Young, 81, passed away Thursday, May 3, 2018 in his home. He was preceded in death by his parents Mathias Henry Young Sr. & Theresa McCormick Young; his brothers, Mathias H. Young Jr. (Jean) & Thomas Young; his son, William "Dennis" Young; and his son-in-law Christopher Hakenjos Sr. He is survived by his first wife, Barbara Chabert, mother of his children; his second wife, Rose Young; his devoted companion, Barbara Montgomery; his daughters, Terryl Y. Hakenjos and Kelly A. Young (Michael); his grandchildren, Ryan Deffes; Christopher Hakenjos Jr. (Angie); Tara Deffes; Spencer Richard; and Hannah Hakenjos; and his great grandchildren Chase and Hudson Hakenjos. Bill was born and raised in New Orleans, LA but resided in Cape Coral, FL for the past 20+ years. Bill was honorably discharged from the United States Navy and retired from Murphy Oil after 40 years of employment. He was very active within the Cape Coral community, including supporting Seniors Against Crime and was a member of the Submarine Vets of Cape Coral. Bill loved reading, doing the crossword puzzle, watching college sports (Tulane & LSU) and the Saints, and watching (and attending) the Kentucky Derby. He was an avid sailor and held a captain's license. Bill was a musician, played the clarinet, and was recently working on mastering the ukulele. He loved cooking and sharing his New Orleans cuisine with his friends and neighbors. Bill lived his life to the absolute fullest, always had a smile on his face and always welcomed you with a kiss and a hug. There was never a dull moment in his life and his family finds comfort knowing that he never wasted a minute and lived by the motto, "when it's my time to go, it's my time to go - no regrets." Bill will be remembered for his contagious smile and laugh, his sense of humor, his big heart, his generosity and kind soul. His family and friends will always carry memories of him in their hearts. The family is grateful to all who have reached out and shared their "Bill" stories. A celebration of Bill's life will be held at a later date and Bill will be there in spirit partying with us all!
