William (Bill) Edward Younger of Charlotte Hall, Maryland died on September 3, 2017, at Charlotte Hall Veterans Home in Charlotte Hall. He was 93.
He was born on September 30, 1923 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to John and Helen Younger. He graduated from Central High School in Chattanooga in 1942, and spent most of his young adult life in Chattanooga. He later settled in Fort Washington, Maryland, and in the mid 80’s re-located again with his wife, Shirley Bailey Younger, to Estes Park, Colorado. They moved back to Charles County, Maryland in 2011, and Bill had been living at the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home in Charlotte Hall since 2015.
Mr. Younger served in the United States Army from March 20, 1943, until his honorable discharge at the rank of Sergeant, on March 20, 1946. During his service, he received the Good Conduct Medal and the Bronze Star among other decorations and citations. After his discharge from the Army, he worked for the Library of Congress for over 34 years, until his retirement on April 29, 1983.
Bill was an avid baseball fan; and, while his heart belonged to the Rockies, he had become a big Nationals and Orioles fan since his return to Maryland. Aside from his love for baseball, he enjoyed old war movies, especially documentaries, and listening to big band music.
In addition to his parents, Bill was predeceased by his loving wife of 33 years, Shirley, his step-son, Robert Bailey, and his grandson, Michael Bailey. He is survived by his sister, Peggy Holland of Omaha, Nebraska, daughter, Lisa Younger of Stevensville, step-sons, Rodney Bailey (Deborah) of Indian Head, and Ronald Bailey (Carol Lowmiller) of Dameron. He is also survived by five grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A service will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017, at the funeral home. There will be a period of visitation from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., immediately followed by a prayer service. Interment will take place at a future date at Estes Valley Memorial Gardens in Estes Park, Colorado.
