BRADFORD, FORMERLY OF BEVERLY- Bruce William Young, Jr., age 50, of Bradford, Mass., passed away Sunday, January 7, 2018, at home.
Bruce was born September 27, 1967, to Joan (now deceased) and Bruce Young in Lynn, Mass. He graduated from Hamilton High School and went on to build a successful business operation under the name of Bruce's Cleaning Services where he had both residential and commercial clients. He was creative and found no job too difficult to master. Bruce loved fishing, hiking and wildlife and never missed an opportunity to explore new adventures where he could be exposed to these elements. He will always be remembered for his fearless personality. He also loved his cats and enjoyed watching wrestling with his wife - especially matches with John Cena.
He was a fun-loving person with a wonderful heart and would do anything to help others. Bruce enjoyed being with and talking with family. He also kept in touch frequently with entertaining "snapchats" - sometimes daily. He always left everyone he met with a smile, and more often a rolling laugh. He was very close to his family and loved them dearly. He was always thoughtful, kind, caring and trusting, while giving so much of himself.
Bruce is survived by his beloved wife, Julie; daughter, Jessica Perez, from a previous marriage; his father, Bruce and his wife, Donna Young; his sister(s), Sharon and George Toome, Sheilah and Jim Labinski, and Colleen A. Young; and six nieces and nephews, Alycia and Alex Toomey, Stefano and Deanna Tarantino, Zoe and Asher Labinski; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
At the wishes of Bruce's family, please give your loved ones a hug today and listen to them respectfully - especially to those who are reaching out and fighting to be heard. Also, give your pets extra belly rubs or treats.
His Funeral service will be held in the Campbell Funeral Home, 525 Cabot St., Beverly, MA 01915, on Friday at 2 p.m. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. Visitation will be held prior from 1 to 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be in his name to help abandoned pets at Merrimack Feline Rescue, 63 Elm Street (Route 110), Salisbury, MA 01952.
