Christopher John Young (Chris), 53, of Lone Tree, Colorado, formerly of Dubuque, passed away at Sky Ridge Medical Center surrounded by his loving family on Sunday, March 10.

Visitation will be from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 28th at the Egelhof, Siegert and Casper Westview Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 Kennedy Road where there will be a wake service at 6:30 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, March 29th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church with Rev. Tom McDermott officiating. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Key West.

Chris was born on July 19, 1965 in Dubuque, son of John and Janet (Hendricks) Young. He loved roaming the hills behind his house, fishing in the Mississippi River, playing golf, softball, baseball, sledding, and skiing on Snowmad Hill. He graduated from Dubuque Senior High School where he was an outstanding wrestler and participated in the State Wrestling tournament. Later he moved to Colorado where he continued his love of the outdoors. Throughout his life he was a devoted Green Bay Packer fan but after living in Colorado he cheered for both the Packers and Denver Broncos. Chris and his friend Jeff Lukens worked together on opening a painting company, Tri-Plex Painting, where he worked for 23 years.

Chris loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, his extended family and many friends. He was a kind, loving and gentle man who always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. Chris recovered from cancer five years ago but continued to battle numerous health issues with a determined spirit and an upbeat attitude.

Chris is survived by his parents; two daughters, Chelsea Young and Olivia (Cameron) Moss, both of Lone Tree, Colorado; two grandchildren Taelynn and Corbin; a step-daughter, Kearah Williams, Lone Tree, Colorado; three step-grandchildren, Keagan, Tavin and Jaxen. He is also survived by a brother, Kevin Young (fiance Laura Gassman), Dubuque; and a twin sister Kerry (Scott) Douglas, Dubuque; a nephew, Seth Godwin; and a niece, Maranda (Emily) Peterson; seven aunts, Sharon (Bob) Cate, Sheila (John) Walsh, Mary Jo (Jerry) Klinkhammer, Pat Link, Susan Young (Randy Theobald), Karen Scheckel and Valeria Roll; two uncles, Bob (Kathy) Hendricks and Jim Young; two godchildren, Maranda Peterson and Peyton Lukens.

Chris was preceded in death by his grandparents, William and Doloras (Crimmins) Hendricks and Roy and Thelma (Rank) Young; four uncles, Donald Hendricks, Terry Hendricks, Dale Mahoney, Leo Link; one aunt, Linda Young; three cousins, David Hendricks, Danielle Cate and Anna Weitz.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Anna Weitz Foundation or Dubuque Rescue Mission.

A Celebration of Life in honor of Chris was held on March 16th in Colorado.
