Young, Jamie Roy October 8, 1967 – September 3, 2012
Jaymes Young, 44, of Barrie, ON, passed away on September 3, 2012 with his wife Tina by his side after a long battle with Chron’s and Colitis, and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (a rare liver disease).
He was born October 8, 1967 in Prince Albert, SK and raised in Spruce Grove, AB, the son of Arnold and Patricia (Haugland) Young. At a young age, he discovered his passion for flying and was soon to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a pilot. While working in construction and building custom homes, he attended NAIT in Edmonton, AB, all while starting his flight training. He moved through several northern Canadian communities gaining the experience necessary to advance to Bearskin Airlines in Thunder Bay, ON and then on to the national airlines where he was employed by Air Canada Jazz. He always said his office had the best view.
If he could not fly it, then he drove it. Jaymes took an active interest in Jeeps and Motorcycles. He truly loved to ride and bring everyone together to do it. He will be greatly missed by his ‘Riding’ families.
Jaymes is lovingly remembered and survived by his wife Tina (Zanandrea) Young; his parents Arnold and Patricia (Haugland) Young; sister Judy and her husband Gary Deans; sister Tami Young; sister Tricia Pearson; niece Hayley Deans; nephew Tyler Pearson; niece Sarah Pearson; and his in-laws: her parents Dino and Liisa Zanandrea; brother Steven Zanandrea and his partner Anna Nicks; brother Paul Zanandrea and his wife Melissa Harvey; and numerous Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends.

A further Memorial Service for family and friends will be held on Saturday, September 22nd at 7:00 pm at the Italian Cultural Centre at 132 Algoma Street S in Thunder Bay, ON.
