Ray Allen Young, 73, of Leavenworth, died Sunday, May 24, 2020, at St. Luke’s Hospice House, surrounded by his family. He was born June 28, 1946, in Lake County, Calif., the son of Robert Young and Lillian Evans.

On Nov. 18, 1967, Ray met and married Janice Vareberg in Finley, N.D., where he was stationed during his time in the military. She survives at the home.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a younger brother, Tom Evans.
