Young, Sr., Delmar Richard 8/19/1929 - 6/12/2021 Ann Arbor, Michigan Delmar R. Young passed away on June 12, 2021 at his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the age of 91. Delmar was the youngest of Claude and Helen (Hattie Catts) Young's eleven children. He was born in Holland Township, Missaukee County, Michigan on the Young family farm. Del married Iris D. Findlay on June 20, 1953 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Dexter, Michigan. Together they raised seven children of whom he was most proud. Del was a custom home builder and excavator for many years in the Ann Arbor area until he founded Dexter Cabinet Works with his sons in 1984. Del and Iris enjoyed many happy years together boating on the Great Lakes and traveling throughout North America in their motorhome. As those who knew him well can attest, Del was an avid University of Michigan Football fan. In addition to his career as a carpenter and craftsman, Del was a stained-glass artist and his beautiful work graces the homes of his family and many friends. Del is survived by his wife of nearly 68 years, Iris, and his children, Marilynn (Vaughan) Lippert, Bonnie (Scott) Sawusch, Valerie (Gerald Jay) Marsh, Delmar Jr. (Vicki), Timothy, Sharon (John) Cosgrove and Patrick (Julie). In addition to his children, he was blessed with fifteen grandchildren, Cameron (Lila) Lippert, Brooke (Philippe) Green, Blaire Sawusch, Kyle (Nicole) Marsh, Jeffrey (Jessica) Marsh, Bret (Blake) Marsh, Katleyn Young, Courtney (Mark) Kornacki, Alyssa Young, Nicholas Young, John Cosgrove, Jacque Cosgrove, Patrick Job Cosgrove, Jonah Young and Claire Young. He also was the proud great-grandfather of ten, Andrew, Cameron III, Addison, Anna Sophia, Gabriella, Elizabeth, Alexandra, Harrison, Peter and Peyton. Delmar was preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers and sisters; Gladys (William), Eleanor (Harry), Cornelius (Sally), Eugene (Evelyn), Russell (Harriet), Jennie (Henry), Daniel (Martha), Virginia (Zenas), Isaac (Betty) and Kenneth (Doris); and his granddaughter-in-law, Pamela Lippert. Del always had a pencil behind his ear and was ready to go to work with whatever needed to be done. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, who knew him for his incredible work ethic, integrity and many admirable qualities, including his great sense of humor, kindness and generosity. A Funeral Mass celebrating his life will be held on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, 11:00am at St. Joseph Catholic Village Church, 3430 Dover St. Dexter, MI 48130. Family will receive visitors at the church from 10:00 – 11:00am before the service.
