Obituary for Duke Young
Ronald "Duke" Young of Frederic, WI, died November 6, 2008, at the age of 69. Duke had a great love of family, friends, life, and the great outdoors. The majority of Duke's life was spent as a contractor and businessman. He honorably served his country while being stationed in Germany from 1957-1960. Locally, most people probably remember Duke for the time he and his wife, Mary put into building and running Countryside Inn. The love they shared was easily noted by the way you were treated from the time you arrived until you left. Patrons left with a smile on their face and a tummy full of good food. Throughout all the adventures in his life the one constant was his wife, Mary (MosIet). Duke and Mary were together for 46+ years where they experienced many highs and lows, but their love for each other was unconditional. When it came to family, nothing was more important. He made it convenient for his family to live nearby so they could easily enjoy each other’s company and help each other in times of need. As much as he loved his daughters, Cara, Paula, and Jennifer, he loved his grandchildren even more. He helped Lucas, his lone grandson, gain an appreciation for wildlife, land, and the great outdoors. He really enjoyed watching his granddaughters, Lauren, Lexi, and Ciara drive the 4-wheeler up and down the airstrip. Whatever made his grandchildren happy made him happy as well. Duke was preceded in death by his parents, Noble and Dell Young and in-laws, Elder and Delores Moslet. He is survived by his loving wife, Mary (Moslet); daughters, Cara (Chuck) Holicky, Paula (Brad) Domagala, Jennifer (Kevin) DeLozier; grandchildren, Lucas Anderson, Lauren and Lexi Domagala, Ciara DeLozier; brothers, Rod (Ann), Gary (Julie), Steve (Jeanne); sister, Pat (Jerry) Anderson; and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. A gathering will be held Monday, November 10th, from 3-8:00 p.m. at Countryside Inn in Frederic, WI. Rowe Funeral Home of Frederic, WI, was entrusted with funeral arrangements.
