He was one of three children born to the late Hubert and Thelma Lee Young. He was preceded in death by both siblings; brother Aubrey Young and sister Wanda Volu McGlowen.
Robert worked many years in the oil fields. He loved being outside and "tinkering" with things. One of his favorite past times was getting in the truck just at dusk, rolling down the windows and driving slow to see how many animals he could see. In fact, this was a nightly ritual until driving became impossible.
Robert leaves behind Betty Young, a wonderful wife of over 22 years. He also is survived by many fantastic children, Danny Young of Arlington and wife Gail, Dale Steele of Andrews and wife Kim, Mike Steele of Purdon and wife Anita, Carla Dragoo of Corsicana and husband Robert, John Dragoo of Corsicana and wife Jody and Rhonda Davis of Alvord and husband Robert.
Robert especially loved his grandchildren, Gabe, Robbie, Kaitlin, Matthew, Meghan, Crystal, Waylon, Maggie, Becca, Jordan, Jocelyn, Kellie Marie and Shannon. More blessings continued with great grandchildren, Grayson, Lane, Tinley, Landon, Genrey, Tyler, Colton, and Katelynn. Robert Earl counted many friends as family as well.
