Royce A. Young

June 12, 1938 - April 6, 2020

U.S. Veteran

Service Date:

Royce Allen Young, 81, of Waterboro, died peacefully at the Pinnacle Health Care Center in Sanford with his loving family by his side on April 6, 2020.

Royce was born on June 12, 1938 in Rockland, Maine, the son of Maynard and Priscilla (Durgin) Young. Royce served in the United States Airforce from 1956 – 1958.

Royce married his true love Claudette 42 years ago and without hesitation lovingly embraced her two sons, Mark and Scott into the family.

Skip’s lightheartedness and ever-present smile were an enduring quality throughout his life.

Skip was a jokester; whenever an opportunity arose, he would play jokes on his friends and family. He loved nothing better than to make people laugh!

One of Royce’s favorite pastimes included gathering together with his family and friends to play cards. Always feeling lucky, he looked forward to their trips to the Casino.

Royce’s grandchildren meant so much to him and he absolutely loved being Pepere’. He always cherished those special moments. Watching television with the grandchildren made his heart melt and their laughter brought him a smile. During the day, Skip’s radio was tuned into the Oldies channel.

Royce is lovingly survived by his wife of 42 years, Claudette Trottier Fournier of Waterboro; one daughter Donna Bryant of Westbrook; three sons Mark Fournier and partner Kathy Charland and Scott and Cheryl, both of Waterboro and Randy Young; his sister Rita Anderson; and several grandchildren and great grandchildren; three sisters-in-laws and one brother in-law.

Royce was predeceased by one daughter, Cathy Young Hayden.

The Autumn Green Funeral Home is respectfully handling arrangements.
