Andrew Chadd Young 37, of Powell, Okla. passed away on January 8, 2020 at his home in Powell. He was born August 11, 1982 in Graham, Texas to Andrew Young and Donna Leming. Chadd was raised in Bryson, Texas until 1991 when he moved to the Powell area. He graduated Kingston High School in 2001 and was a member of the Kingston Alumni. Chadd was Tinkerbell for alumni.
He enjoyed riding horses, getting into trouble with his friends, coon hunting, and being outside. Five short months after Chadd graduated high school he was in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. His handicap did not slow him down; he continued to hunt from his wheelchair. Chadd enjoyed going outside to watch Cody and Will build something because he always had a better way of doing it. What Chadd enjoyed most of all was talking to his Papa JB and how proud he was of his nieces and nephews. They were just like his own kids. They are what kept him going.
Chadd is survived by his mother; Donna Leming of Bryson, Texas, Step-dad; Donald Buckaloo of Kingston, Okla. grandparents; JB and Beulah Leming of Bryson, Texas, brother; Cody Young and wife Dana of Powell, Okla. aunt and uncles; Fallon Kosechata and wife Vicki of Bryson, Texas, Jay DeKoch and wife Connie of Bryson, Texas, Bobby Leming of Bryson, Texas and Chrysa Leming, of Fort Worth, Texas, nieces and nephew; Carly, Chayse, and Kash.
Chadd was preceded in death by his father; Andy Young, grandparents; Geoff and Bonnie Young, and his uncle Johnny Young. Memorial services will be Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Powell Church of Christ in Powell, Oklahoma. Services are under the direction of Watts Funeral Home, Madill, Oklahoma.
