June 6, 1940 - May 21, 2022

“Sabe”, Sabine Arthur Young, Jr. 81, of Wheeling, WV, passed away Saturday, May 21, 2022, at home.
Sabe was born June 26, 1940, in Carbondale (Fayette County), WV, a son of the late Sabine Arthur and Marjorie Elizabeth (Tackett) Young. Sabe was an U.S. Air Force veteran and over the years was the owner/ operator of several businesses. For many years, Sabe relished being an active member of the Elm Grove Baseball Association. He discovered his passion in “retirement”, as a self taught contractor/handyman. Through his work, he was welcomed into countless homes in the greater Wheeling area. Sabe never met a stranger, and his generosity and selflessness was always appreciated for those fortunate enough to have known him.
In addition to his parents, Sabe was preceded in death by two brothers, Pat and Bill Young, and sister Loretta Irene Young. He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Edith (Duncan) Young; daughter, Kim Young; son, Derek and wife Susan. Brothers, Larry and wife Ruby, Rick and wife Maryann, and their families; son-in-law, Danny Amend; beloved grandsons, Ben and Cameron Amend, and Cameron’s wife, Caitlyn; as well as Sabe’s extended family in Edinburgh, Scotland.
In accordance with his wishes, there will be no visitation. A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from 3 to 7 pm, Saturday, June 4th, 2022, at the Elm Grove Civics, 21 Sycamore Avenue, Wheeling WV.
