Jerry Robbin Young, 67, of Kittrell, went to be with the Lord after a 2 ½ year battle with leukemia surrounded by his family, Wednesday February 18, 2015 at Rex Hospital. He was born in Wake County to the late Johnny Lassiter Young, Sr. and Annie Willie Bridges.

Mr. Young was a retired property manager from The Carlyle Group and will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him.
Funeral services will be held at 11 o’clock Saturday morning February 21, 2015 at Oak Level Christian Church. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
