Powell "Paul" Young, Sr.

June 2, 1950 ~ May 5, 2021 (age 70)


Mr. Powell (Paul) Young, Sr. was born to Rev. Herbert and Bernice (Jones) Young on June 2, 1950. He received his wings on May 5, 2021 at Trident Medical Center with his wife by his side. Paul as he was known by many attended schools in Holly Hill. Retired from Coastal Center in October 2020. Powell was a member of New Way Church House Ministry, where he served on the usher’s board and the men’s fellowship. He was married to Joyce Young for 43 years. Paul loved to travel, listen to R & B music, dance and “cut the fool” with everyone. Whenever he was around there was never a dull moment. He enjoyed watching football and his shoot “em” ups. But most of all he loved his family. His great-grands gave him his bragging rights. They were the apple of his eyes.

In addition to his parents, Paul was preceded in death by his son, James Benjamin; two sisters, Rose Taste and Lurine Pinckney; one brother, Leni Young.
