~Robert's Last & Final Ride~

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow,

nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:

for the former things are passed away."

(Revelations 21:4)

Robert Lee Young III entered the world with his presence on Saturday, October 23, 1965, to the proud and loving parents, Martha and Robert Lee Young II in Conroe Texas.

Robert attended public school in Montgomery, Texas and graduated from Montgomery High School, Class of 1984. Robert accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior, and was baptized at Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor T.B. Reeves.

During high school, Robert was employed by Hamilton Sanitation as a driver for many years. Later on in life, Robert was employed by Del Lago as a Lead Laundry Press Operator. Robert was a fulltime Mule Skinner for Acres Home Riding & Roping Club for over 30 years. Upon his health starting to fail, Robert worked for Easley Enterprises, and Lewis Johnson Wood Services, doing various tasks.

On March 11, 2012, Robert married his best friend, and life companion, DeAnne Young. 

Robert's love for horses began at an early age. He lived to train, break, but mostly ride some of the toughest horses around. Robert knew every trick of the trade to get a horse/mule to trust him. Robert decided that he wanted to join his cousin (George Linton Jr.) in Houston, and drive mules into downtown Houston for the seven day trailride, for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Robert would train mules and horses for different trail ride clubs, from miles and miles. Robert had the great idea one day to take horses and mules on a journey of there life, from Montgomery, Texas to Willis, Texas crossing the Bentwater Bridge (2 mile bridge surrounded by Lake Conroe). Robert would say, when they go across this bridge and back, they are now "Young Approved"!! Robert enjoyed his life breaking horses and mules, dancing, partying, hanging with friends, and family. The joy of Robert's life, was living his best life to the fullest. Robert had a giving heart, and love for all people, and he never met a stranger. Robert will be missed for his slick tongue, loud mouth, signature dance move, singing the blues during dialysis, and his favorite saying, "GO HEAD". Robert will be deeply missed and forever loved.
