Ronald A. Young, 82, of Ohioville, passed away on Thursday, April 2, 2020 in Elmcroft of Chippewa following a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Born May 16, 1937, he was the son of the late Howard R. and Margaret M. (Carlson) Young.

Ronald was a teacher, athletic director, guidance counselor, and principal during his 40 years working in the Western Beaver School District.  Upon retirement, he was a pioneer in the early creation of the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School and the state of the art Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School.  He thrived on providing education to all students including those that did not fit into the normal school setting. 

He is survived by his wife of 60 year, Frances (Hovelman) Young; two sons, Ronald Young, Jr. of Huntsville, Alabama, and Mark Young of Huntington Beach, California ; a daughter, Holly (Art) Castelli of Ohioville; seven grandchildren; Lainey (Eric) Phillips of Perrysville, Carley (David) Brandon of Georgetown, and Casey (Andy) Theobald of Hookstown, Cody Young of Wilmington, NC, Jesse Young of Cornelius NC, and Morgan and Jack Young of Huntsville, Alabama,  and three great-grandchildren, Beau and Willa Theobald, and Dawsyn Brandon.  He is also survived by a sister Jean (Bob) Lash of Patterson.

The family would also like to thank Elmcroft of Chippewa for the good and kind care they gave Ron, especially Lisa, Renee, Heather, Diana, and Leah.  They would also like to thank Grane Hospice, especially Candace and Carol.

  1. I’ve known Ron since I was a baby and am truly saddened by the death of such a wonderful man. My prayers are with the entire Young family.

  2. I am with a very heavy saddened heart to see Mr. Young passed. He was such an inspiration to me and guided me like no other. If it wasn’t for him, I would not have known to be in National Honor Society or go into Cosmetology. He called me to the office and told me to go for it and I didn’t know what it was. I listened to him n loved it n to this day 38 years I love it. I ALWAYS ALWAYS say it was because of Mr.Young. Gosh, he was such a great man that cared about everyone. My heart goes out to you all in the family, but know he will be guiding you all from up above. God gained a great angel. Bless you all!
