Obituary of Colin Aaron Young

Colin Aaron Young, age 38, of Irondequoit, passed away unexpectedly on October 23, 2020. He is survived by his parents, Howard and Christine (McFarlin) Young, the love of his life Rachael Conrad, his beloved children, Aiden and Madelyn, brothers Austin (Mindy) and Joel, Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and countless friends, all whom he considered his family.

Colin was known for his quick wit, infectious smile, and his kind, compassionate and fun-loving spirit. Boundless in his energy, Colin radiated warmth and love in every interaction. He danced courageously to the beat of his own drum, and inspired others to do the same. He answered the call of friendship in a way that taught friendship, and he answered the call of fatherhood in a way that will forever live through his children. Colin was the pillar and creator of a community in which everyone was always welcome. Not only will the world not be the same without him, it will not be the same because of him.

Calling hours will be from 5-8pm on Friday, October 30 at Harris Funeral Home, 570 Kings Hwy 14617. In lieu of flowers, donations to support his surviving children are appreciated, please click this link.
