Robert was born on March 28, 1939, at home in Niles, the son of the late William H. and Marie Bowen Young.

He was a member of the former First Presbyterian Church of Niles. Bob lived, slept, and breathed anything to do with cars. He was commonly known as “Mr. Mopar” to everyone who knew him for his knowledge of Mopar’s. To say he was passionate about cars is an understatement. Bob was involved in antique cars, shows, and rebuilds to drag racing. Earlier in life he loved to repair boats and ride snowmobiles. All these enjoyments Bob did with his family. He loved having his sons with him making memories in the garage, on the track, or riding through the snow.
