Walter J. Young, 89, of Vergennes


VERGENNES — Walter J. Young passed away peacefully May 7, 2022, after a brief illness. He was born Oct. 6, 1932. He was the son of Walter Young Sr. and Catherine (Rivers) Young of Vergennes.

He worked for 33 years as an accountant at Simmonds Precision. Walter was an avid hunter and enjoyed spending time with his father in the woods. He enjoyed investing and was very generous with his gains. He was a member of St. Peters Catholic Church, holding fast to his faith until the very end of his life.

All who knew Walter will remember him as an animated storyteller. He loved to talk about his youth. His mother ran the telephone company from their home while father served as the postmaster in Vergennes. Walter had a vibrant personality and will be missed dearly.

He is survived by his sister Jean and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father, mother and sisters, Olive and Mary. 

I want to thank the staff at UVM Medical Center and the McClure Miller Respite House for their love and support during the past few weeks of Walter’s life. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Age Well of Addison County.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Vergennes. Interment will be at St. Peter’s Cemetery in Vergennes. To send online condolences to his family please visit◊
