Robert Lee Young, Jr.

Sunrise: June 6, 1967

Sunset: July 2, 2021

“Truth, blessings, and respect.  May God continue to bless you. God is real.”      -Robert Young, Jr.

Robert Lee Young, Jr. was a loyal, loving, generous, and wise father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend.  He touched the lives of all he encountered with his laughter, words of advice, loving heart, and thoughtful gestures.

Rasheam or Rob Jr. as he was affectionately known by many was born June 6, 1967 and took his eternal rest on July 2, 2021.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Lee Young, Sr. Mary Alice Young and his little brother, Ulyssess Young.

Robert  was born in North Carolina and grew up in the Campostella section of Norfolk, VA.  He graduated from Lake Taylor High School where he was a proud and energetic member of the Marching Titans.  He went on to attend TCC and most recently worked in construction at Bridgeman Civil Inc.

Rob Jr. loved and valued his family and friends.  He was a man with whom you could share your most hilarious joke or your deepest secret.  He took pride in supporting those he loved with guidance and sound advice.  Robert often took time out of his day to extend a warm greeting and a blessing of peace and respect to many of those close to him.

Robert was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan! He enjoyed sporting any one of several jerseys that he owned and got a kick out of bragging about his favorite team.  Robert had an indisputable knack for providing advice to all of his children, nieces and nephews.  They often went to him when they needed help solving a problem.  They knew that “Uncle Rob” would help them get it all resolved.  Likewise, his siblings and friends trusted him as well to provide the greatest advice in the most challenging situations.

Robert Lee Young Jr. leaves to cherish his memory, his children: Chardai Edwards, ReNiqua Davis, and Rasheam Edwards; his grandchildren, Za’Riyah Edwards, Zameir Edwards, Zierre Edwards, and Rasheam Edwards Jr. ; his siblings Lionel Johnson (Eugene) and  Cotrina Young (DeAndre).  He also leaves to cherish his memory, a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.  He will also be truly missed by two of his extremely close cousins,   Eric Reid and Frank Lamb.

May we all remember the legacy of love, selflessness, and devotion to family and friends that Robert leaves behind.

    It was much sadness and pain to hear of the passing of my Rob.
    I call him my “Nephew” and would call me “uncle Shake” It is just devastating to see the life of such a beautiful spirit cut so short. Robert Young Jr. had a bigger-than-life personality that captivated everyone around him. He was truly loved and he will be truly missed “Gone too soon”
