Braxton Augustine William Young, 20, passed away March 1, 2021, in Murray Utah.
Braxton was born December 14, 2000, in Ogden, UT to Aaron Young and Amy Wilson.
He is survived by his father Aaron, mother Amy, three sisters, Ashley (Rocky) Bozarth, Tristan (Cameron) Richens, Sierra Young, and his younger brother Chase Young. He is also survived by his grandparents, Larry and Kathy Young, and Mary Wilson, and his father’s friend Judy Kase.
Braxton is preceded in death by his Uncle Jeremy Young.
Braxton’s smile would light up any room and he was a bright light of humor, a genuinely compassionate young man, and had never-tiring energy. Even though his struggles, he found a way to lighten any situation with his silly jokes and funny voices, and humorous accents.
Braxton meant the world to his little brother Chase, and they loved riding their four-wheelers or just hanging out watching movies. He and his oldest sister Ashley enjoyed spending time at holiday events and Braxton loved spending time with his niece Taya and nephews Kayden and Jeremy. Braxton and his sister Tristan were very close, sharing many memories to be treasured, and he will be missed by his nephews Ryder and Remy and his nieces Addie and Eliza. Sierra enjoyed hanging out with her brother and will miss him deeply.
Braxton loved his family and was "raised by a village"... including his parents; Grandparents Larry and Kathy; his Uncle Shaun and Aunt Heather Young, Uncle Travis Young, and Aunt Brenda, and his Grandma Mary and Uncle John.
Braxton touched the hearts of so many people throughout each aspect of his short life and each person holds a part of him that will live on through fond memories.
He will be truly missed by many cousins and extended family and friends who each held a special place in Braxton’s heart.
We find peace in knowing Braxton was met in heaven by his uncle Jeremy and that he has found the serenity he searched so long for here on earth.
Braxton’s funeral services were held Friday, March 5, 2021, at Leavitt’s Mortuary in Ogden, where he was laid to rest with his uncle Jeremy Young. The many family and friends who were able to pay their respects were greatly appreciated!
Braxton is loved and missed by all that knew him.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Leavitt's for the care and compassion in taking care of Braxton and our family through one of the most difficult times of our lives.
