John Jacob Young, age 75, of Caledonia, went to be with his Lord unexpectedly in January 2, 2018. John graduated from Caledonia High School and proudly served in the U.S. Army. He worked for General Motors (36th St. Plant) for over 37 years, was a leader in Tool and Die, and was on the Executive board with the UAW Local 730 for many years. John and Judy loved their many friends they made at Sherwood Forrest the past 17 years and his Wednesday's coffee with friends at McDonalds in Caledonia. He enjoyed music, gardening, and his John Deere tractors. He will be deeply missed by his wife of 57 years, Judy (nee Demarest); his children, Debra (Gordon) Lantinga, Kelly Papp, Tracy Young; six grandchildren, Lance Van Haitsma, Taryn Van Haitsma, Trent Van Haitsma, Cameron Papp, Lydia Papp, Drake Young; great grandson, Gunner Van Haitsma; sister-in-law, Teri Demarest, many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son, John Robert; son-in-law, Dr. John Papp Sr.; parents, John and Lena Young; brothers, Howard and Jay Wiersma; parents-in-law, Ted and Alice Demarest; and brother-in-law, Larry Demarest. The family will greet visitors on Tuesday, January 16, from 5 - 8 pm at Stroo Funeral Home (1095 68th St. SE), where the service will be held on Wednesday, January 17, at 11 am.
