Dear Family and Friends:

This memorial website was created in memory of Leon Dedric Young. Leon was snatched from our lives November 1, 1999.  It still seems like yesterday.  As his mom, I just wanted to hear from people who knew him.  I would love to hear from you. If you have pictures, please feel free to upload them.   If you have stories or pictures  you only want to share with me and not the website, please send them to 4leon1001@gmail.com. 

For those of you just visiting.  Leon was our oldest of our five children. We were blessed to have him in our lives for 20 years. Sadly, November 1, 1999 at approximately 12:30 a.m. he was killed by a drunk driver.   Leon was with some friends.  They had stopped at the red light in front of the post office on Perrrin Beital in San Antonio, Texas.  A man, extremely intoxicated (.29) rear-ended the stopped car.  The man was traveling approximately 65 mph when he hit the car.  He knocked the car over 211 feet and across 3 lanes.  Leon was in the rear passenger seat.  He was  killed instantly. 

Officially this happened on Nov. 1st, but to us it was and always will be Halloween night:
      *  His aunt's birthday 
      *  The day after his baby brother's birthday
      *  The ending of the great Halloween party at our home.
Needless to say, Halloween is no longer a great day in our household.

 Although  Leon is gone from this world, he is forever etched in our hearts.   We will always love him and miss him.  This memorial is just another way to show it.  Hope you enjoy this site and please come back to see the changes.

Anna Young,
Leon' mother
