R. Young, a resident of Bluffton, SC, formerly of Syracuse, NY passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 15th at his home. He was a native of Chester, SC and a beloved son of the late John W. Young and the living Alberta "Peaches" Young.

 

Ron accomplished greatness in many aspects of his life both professionally and personally. He rose in the corporate ranks at Agway, Inc. and most recently served as Vice President for Public and Governmental Affairs at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. But equally important in his life was his dedication to community service, which he exhibited through his leadership roles on boards for the United Way of Central New York, Central New York Community Foundation, and Greater Syracuse Chamber of Commerce.  


Ron is probably best known for his longtime membership and commitment to his fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc., where he served in many leadership roles, rising to International Grand Polemarch (President).  In 2011, he was the centennial recipient of the Fraternity's highest honor, The Laurel Wreath.

 

Ron will be remembered as a fun loving, compassionate, generous community leader, an avid golfer & sports enthusiast. He was passionate about his family, friends, fraternity and his dogs.  He leaves to cherish his memory, wife Jacqueline M. Jackson-Young and three daughters Jenelle R. Pope of California (Che'), Nicole C. Collier of Maryland (Brent), and Whitney M. Young of Georgia.  He is also survived by his mother, Alberta "Peaches" Young of Syracuse and brother, John A. Young (Tonette) of Syracuse, and three grandchildren, Kaya & Ethan Pope and Davis Collier.
