Matthew James Young, 51, of Chippewa Falls, town of Lafayette, died Sunday, March 21, 2021 after a hard-fought battle with cancer at Sacred Heart Hospital with his family by his side.
He was born February 23, 1970 in Elkhorn to Cynthia (Pinnow) and Jim Young. He grew up in Delavan and graduated from DDHS, class of 1988. He was a State wrestler and was proudly coined the nickname, “The Terminator.”
Matt found the love of his life, Nancy Decker at a Packer preseason game. Shortly after meeting, Matt moved to Chippewa Falls to be with Nancy. The two united in marriage on June 11, 2007 in Las Vegas. It was meant to be and they were a perfect match!
Once living in Chippewa Falls, Matt worked at Southworth Chevrolet. He loved his job as a service advisor at Southworth and the coworkers quickly became his second family.
Matt enjoyed playing softball, dancing, listening to music, and singing karaoke…he never turned down a mic! He was always happy and wasn’t just the life of the party, he was THE party! He will be dearly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy Decker-Young of Chippewa Falls; his son, Brody Young of Darien, WI; his mother, Cynthia Warrenburg of Delavan; brothers, John (Debbie) Young of Delavan, Brian (Susan) Young of Jupiter, FL; step-mother, Teresa Young of Walworth; step-brother, Joseph Krawczyk of Walworth; nieces and nephews; and numerous friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; his father, Jim Young; mother-in-law, Gloria Decker-Francis; and his stepson, Jarrod Gordon.
