David Young Memorial Fund

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of David Young. He was a devoted father, loving son, brother and friend who will be greatly missed by so many.
 
With the loss of David, the world is a little less vibrant, funny, spontaneous and beautiful.
 
The grief and heartache of the sudden loss of David is completely unfathomable. David lived his life with passion. He had a unique eye and a special talent for creating beautiful things. Through his design and art work he expressed the pride he had for his country, his love of music and lust for life. His infectious personality and wicked sense of humour has made an impression on so many people.
 
David became a father in December 2014. Martin was David’s world. David was immensely proud of Martin and so honoured to be his Daddy. Their bond was special and unbreakable.
 
Please help us support Martin Young through this memorial fund.  Martin is almost 4 years old and will have many needs in the years to come. He was recently diagnosed with autism and was making great strides through therapy.  Martin is curious, friendly and a ray of sunshine. A sweet, gentle and affectionate little boy who is greatly loved.
 
The outpouring of love the family has received has been incredible and everyone has expressed an interest to help during this difficult time.  This Go Fund Me campaign has been created by DY’s family and friends in honour of David’s life & legacy in order to assist and support Martin’s future. It will be held in trust by an appointed administrator. As David’s son, we expect great things from his sweet little boy, Martin.
 
We love you and miss you David and we promise to look out for Martin forever and always.
