It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Albert Young, known to many as “Johnny” or “Johnny Cakes” on September 17th, 2020 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. John passed away peacefully with three of his beloved children by his side. John was born in Quarryville, New Brunswick on June 10th, 1941, he was the son to the late Monica Hubbard and the late John Young.
John had many careers throughout his life; he was a baker in his early years, farm hand, and he served in the military for two years. John spent most of his working life as an LPN at Centracare where he retired in 2002 after a 30–year long career. John was an incredible athlete and competitor. He loved to play many sports including hockey, softball, and badminton to name a few. John was an avid boxer; he was a Five–Time Maritime & Atlantic Golden Glove Champion and spent many of his younger years in the ring. Later in life John picked up the sport of running where he spent many years training with family and friends. John ran in ten marathons including five in New York, two in Boston, one in Chicago, one in London England, and one in Saint John. Family always came first for John. Every room he entered got a little bit brighter with his contagious laugh, big blue eyes, and heart of gold. His family was the centre of his world and he was the center of theirs. There was nothing he enjoyed more than watching and coaching his children and grandchildren playing sports. He loved to sing and loved music. He always looked forward to trips back home to Miramichi where he would visit his siblings and listen and sing along to their favorite songs. John had a tight knit group of friends known to many as the “Tim’s Crew” that he would meet with every day. John cherished his children, family, and his friendships. He will truly be missed by all!
John is survived by his five brothers; Doug (Majorie) Young, Norman Young, Donald Young, David Young, Bernard (Marilyn) Young and his three sisters; Monica Davidson MacDonald, Helen (Cathy) Young and Janice (Frank) Hogan.

(Hannah) Young, Crystal (Francois) Savoie and grandchildren Desmond, Kendra, Nikayla, Anthony, Devyn, Nathan, Brady, Santana, Gayle, Grant and great–grandchildren. He is also survived by his children’s mother and dear friend Linda Carrigan.

Michael Joseph Steeves, 81, of Lower Cape passed away peacefully at his home on September 17, 2020 with his treasured granddaughter, Megan, by his side. He felt blessed to have had the support of his entire family during this time.
Mike was born in St. John's Newfoundland on May 28th, 1939 the son of the late Stanley C. and Margaret (Ryan) Steeves.
Mike was a truck driver and spent most of his career with Newcomb Lumber and last worked at T.P. Downey & Sons before his retirement.

He liked old cars and enjoyed travelling around in his 1936 Chev. He had a special place in his heart for animals, especially his little dogs, Teddy, Skip and Rudy. He spoiled every dog he had with love and affection. He had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh and tell stories. He enjoyed teasing and tormenting, all in fun. He loved his family and has always been there for them. Whenever anyone needed anything he did what he could to make sure they were looked after and happy, often putting his own needs second. He loved his home in Lower Cape and knew everyone in Albert County as he has lived here his whole life and made many lifelong connections over the years. He will be remembered for his contagious smile and twinkle in his eye.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
