History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
Over a century of family service to our community has given the Young
Funeral Homes a rich history in Butler County . Breaden Young founded
the Young Funeral Home in 1896. Since then, four generations of the
Young family have been serving Butler County with warm understanding and
gracious personal care.
In 1950, Breaden's two sons formed a partnership, Robert A. and William Foster Young, Sr. In 1963, Robert sold his share to his nephew, William F. Young Jr. This partnership between William Sr. and his son existed until 1970, when William Jr. purchased the J. Clinton Atwell Funeral home in Butler , establishing a second Young Funeral Home.
When William Foster Young, Sr. died in 1976, his wife, Joy Cora Young,
operated the funeral home until her death in 1997. Her son and William
Jr.’s brother, Edwin Leroy, is now the owner of the West Sunbury funeral
William F. Young, Jr.’s children have truly made the Young Funeral Home a family-owned business. In 1980, Robin Joy Young became the first female in Butler County and the fourth generation of the Young Family to become a licensed funeral director. Her brother, William F. Young, III ., became licensed in 1989. In January 1999, Monica Young Campagna retired from teaching in the Slippery Rock Area School District to join her family as office manager. Monica's daughter, Jodi Campagna Brennan became licensed in 2005 and Robin's daughter, Cori Christy Brown became licensed in 2009.
In 1993, a newly expanded handicapped accessible facility was opened
featuring a chapel and three visitation rooms. The Young Funeral Homes
offers traditional funeral services for all faiths, pre-arrangements and
irrevocable trust funding, complete monument service and cremation.
William F. Young, Jr. "Digger" passed away on March 25, 2014 leaving a legacy behind. His children and grandchildren continue to honor his memory by providing families caring support in the Butler community.
