Services for Charles Howard “Chuck” Young were held Wednesday at Lee Memorial Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Will Rambo and Bro. Joe Young officiating. Burial with military honors was in Lee Memorial Park and prayers were offered by Dr. Tim Brown. Lee Memorial Funeral Home was entrusted with the arrangements. Young, 82, died Wednesday, June 17, 2020. He was born April 5, 1938, in Collins to Vernon and Texana Young. He graduated from Collins High School and earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. He served his country in the United States Navy. After moving to Tupelo in 1972, he worked for Rockwell International. He owned and retired from Indian Head, LLC. He enjoyed operating his Ham radio, waxing the Mustang, going to the gun range, and Southern Miss football. He was a member of American Legion Post #49 and Tupelo Amateur Radio Club, and a die-hard Republican. He attended The Orchard, was a Civil War history buff, and the senior radio operator for Wireless Prayers, an outreach program of the radio club. But above all else “Grandpa” loved spending time with his grandsons who he referred to as “the little guys” even after they reached their 20s.
