Bruce Young Notice
Bruce Young, 83
Bruce Young, 83, of Plainville, MA, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, September 2, 2019. He was the beloved husband of Madelyn R. (Connors) Young, to whom he was married on December 15, 1956.
Born on August 13, 1936 in Attleboro, MA, he was the son of the late Thelma (Field) Witherell.
Bruce proudly and honorably served our country in the United States Air Force and was the owner and operator of Taylor Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. for many years, before retiring.
A resident of Plainville since 2004, he previously lived in Rehoboth, MA where he was raised and worked on his family's farm, "Field Farm".
A warm, caring gentle man with a friendly smile, Bruce attended St. Mark's Church in Attleboro Falls. He was an ardent fan of New England sports teams, especially the Red Sox, and enjoyed family vacations and trips to the casino, Prudence Island, and to Disney World. Bruce was a deeply patriotic man with a profound love of his country. More than anything, he loved his family and cherished spending time with them.
In addition to his wife, Madelyn, he leaves his loving children: Cheryl M. Gagne and her husband, Jerry P. Gagne, of Taunton, MA; Kerrie A. Benevides and her husband, John Benevides, of North Dighton, MA; Sandra J. O'Neill and her husband, James F. O'Neill, of Attleboro, MA; and Brenda L. Higgins and her husband, Robert E. Higgins Jr. of Rehoboth, MA. He was the proud and adoring grandfather of twelve grandchildren and twenty-four great-grandchildren. Bruce was the brother of the late Ronald E. Young and his wife, the late Rita M. (Richards) Young; Shirley A. (Field) Rascher of Rehoboth, MA, and her late husband, Robert Everett Rascher; and the uncle of the late Richard Rasher and Jeffrey Rascher of Rehoboth, MA. Bruce leaves his dear friends, Richard Hall and his wife, Eleanor Hall, of Greenville, RI, and his extended family.
