Mr. Ford Les Young, 66, of Brookhaven, passed from this life and entered eternity May 1, 2022. He was born in Jackson, MS, December 3, 1955, to Weatherford Swan Young and Mary Elizabeth Kenton Young. He enjoyed life immensely spending many hours fishing, riding motorcycles, and playing bass in “jam sessions” with his buddies and at church. He attended Center Point Church in Brookhaven. He was also an active member of Celebrate Recovery and was a Broken Chains JC Motorcycle Missionary. Les was always ready to share his testimony of faith with anyone who would listen. He was a glorious example of what Jesus Christ can do with a willing heart. His most valuable treasures were his daughter, grandchildren, and his girlfriend. He enjoyed every moment he spent with them. Les was a tremendous friend and servant of the Lord; he will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers, Joe Young, Don Young, and David Young.

Those left to cherish his memory are his daughter, Lacy Young and her boyfriend, Scotty Bond; sister, Ann Collett and husband, Gene; three grandchildren, Geran Williams, Kelli Bond, and Daphne Bond; nieces and nephews, Aimee, Neal, Dallas, Ashley and Allen; his long-time girlfriend, Ann Tarver; and a host of very close friends and other loving family members.
