John Young's Memorial Fund

Jonathan Young might have thought of himself as a typical teenager at seventeen years of age. John attended John Handley High School in Winchester, VA. He was studying electronics.

John enjoyed doing the things that boys his age do, playing video games with his family and friends, sports with his Dad and school functions with Mom.

The unthinkable occurred on Friday the 9th of June, John drowned in a lake in West Virginia while swimming with friends.  While he will be truly missed, his memory will live on.

We wanted to help the family defray all of the costs involved with having to bury a loved one.
