OBITUARY: Eugene “Gino” Young

Eugene “Gino” Samuel Young, age 50, of Questa, NM was called home to be with our Lord on Sunday, September 26, 2021. He was a beloved and devoted father, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew, godfather, cousin, friend, neighbor, and co-worker.

Gino was born in La Jara, CO in 1971 to Lupe and Theresa Young of Questa, NM. He is preceded in death by his father Jose Lupe “Lupito” Young. He is survived by his daughters, his ultimate pride and joy, McKayla, Giana, and Abigail; and the mother of his children, Julie Martinez of Questa; his mother, Theresa Young, Questa, NM; siblings Deborah Young, Albuquerque, NM; Vincent (Stacey) Young, Los Lunas, NM; Vernon Young, Jaroso, CO; Georgette Young, Carlsbad, TX; Martin (Bernadine) Young, Questa, NM; Jeanine (Scott) Weyand, Austin, TX; Priscilla Benavidez, Albuquerque, NM; and Tom (Jeannie) Esgate, Taos, NM, several nieces and nephews, Tias, Tios and Primos.

Gino was raised in Questa on the family farm and ranch and was loved by all who knew and met him. Amoung his many jobs he was especially proud of being a Questa schools bus driver which allowed him to be part of the young community in Questa. There were never any strangers in his life….only new friends!

Funeral services for Gino were held on Saturday, October 2, at St. Anthony Parish in Questa, NM. He was laid to rest at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church cemetery in Cerro, NM.

The Young family would like to thank DeVargas Funeral home for the initial care of our baby brother and final arrangements made by Rivera Family Funeral Home.
