As the sun was rising on a crisp fall morning, Claude Robert Young, Jr. passed effortlessly from this world to the next. The morning would have reminded him of his younger days sitting the woods on the slope of a hill waiting for the squirrels to wake up; following his dog through the tall grass and low brush on the hunt for quail; wading in an ice cold slough and listening for the familiar quacks of ducks coming in; or opening his Mobil Service Station in New Boston to be there for his customers. The morning of November 23, 2021 was a beautiful morning for Claude.
