Obituary for Sylvin "Sy" Young

Sylvin L. (Sy) Young, 91 of Florence, passed away at home on January 31, 2022 with his wife by his side. He was born in Piqua, Ohio. During his youth, his family moved to Lincoln County, KY where he developed friends and loved ones which he remained very close to throughout his life. Later the family settled in Norwood, OH where he graduated from Norwood High. Sylvin was preceded in death by his parents, Major and Selma (nee Hensley) Young, brother, Charles E. (Dolores ) Young and sister, Beatrice (Dick) Pohlman.

Sylvin loved his country and was honored to serve in the Korean War. He retired in 1998 as a Real Estate Developer and Custom Home/Commercial Builder in the Greater Cincinnati area. Designing and building homes for each and every homeowner brought him great satisfaction.

Sylvin was the loving and faithful husband of Cynthia (Cindy), (nee Shelton) Young and has been the love of her life for 42 blessed years. Loved and cherished father of Sylvin II (Sy) (Dorette) Young, daughters Karyn (Tom) Eddy, Lauri (Dar) Alford and his late daughter, Barbi (Gary) Creager. Sylvin had four grandchildren and many nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly. He had been limited for many years outside the home, and as such he appreciated all the friends and extended family who never failed to be there when needed, as well as the many cards, visits and phone calls especially from his church family. These memories help sustain his family now during this time of great sorrow and pain from his passing.

The Young family wishes to humbly express our heartfelt thanks to the staff at Bluegrass Care Navigators (Hospice) as well as Dr. Craig Eisentrout (Cincinnati) who provided excellent and compassionate care for almost 18 yrs.

In lieu of a funeral service, memorial contributions in his honor may be made to Galilean Childrens Home, PO Box 880, Liberty, KY 42539 or Morrow United Methodist Church, 510 Welch Rd, Morrow, OH. Friends may leave condolences online at
