Trace Young

Trace Young

I lost my 25 year old nephew to a motorcycle accident this week.  They had the viewing from 5-8 on Wednesday night and it was unbelievable, I have never seen so many people show up to a viewing, there must have been over a thousand people. The line was packed for the full 3 hours and people were lined out the doors in the cold for over an hour.  The parking lot held about 50 cars and it was full, people were having to park blocks away and some never got a chance to come in, I was in awe. 

He was an eagle scout and played almost all sports growing up so he had a ton of friends.  He was a people person and always greeted you with a hug.  His dad was telling stories that he'd heard while greeting the viewers and one told of how Trace had met him at a stop light and from there they became good friends. What do you do when someone starts talking to you at a red light? 

At the burial site they had paint setup so that everyone could dip their hands and then place them on the coffin.  It was a great way to send him off.

For a person who was only 25 years old he lived life to the fullest and was a great influence to everyone he met.  He will be greatly missed.
