- Stanley "Butch" Howard Young III, 60, made his final trip home on September 23, 2017. Butch was born on March 24, 1957, the son of Stanley Howard Young Jr. and Elizabeth (Madden) Young in Bangor.
He was raised in Vermont but moved back to Maine and started his family. In June of 1987 his daughter Amie, the light of his life, was born. Butch was a long haul over the road truck driver for many years. He was best known for his blue Mack Superliner, "Tailspin". He drove for many years for various trucking companies in the New England area. When Butch was not driving over the road he enjoyed spending time camping and fishing on Seboeis Lake with his family and friends. He also enjoyed attending the Owl's Head Antique Truck shows with trucks that he and his father restored over the years.
Butch will be dearly missed by his daughter, Amie Lee Young and her significant other, John Sinclair of Bradford; his mother, Elizabeth Young of Greenbush; his brother, Bill Young of Florida; his sister, Wendy Spencer of Vermont; brother-in-law, Larry York of Grand Falls; many nieces and nephews; and a very dear life-long friend, Jimmy Simpson and his wife, Lori, of Vermont. He was predeceased by his father, Stanley Young Jr.; as well as two sisters, Christine York and Sharon Young.
A private celebration of his life will be held for the family at a later date. Those who wish to remember Butch in a special way may make gifts in his memory to the Owls Head Transportation Museum, PO Box 277, Owls Head, ME 04854.
