REFLECTIONS OF A WONDERFUL LIFE
Fletcher D. Young was born to the late Walter and Lillian Young on July 8, 1932. He was formally educated at Lincoln High School, Gainesville, FL where he received his diploma in 1950. He served his country in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged from the Korean War in 1953. He was a member of The American Legion Post 16 in which he attended monthly. He married the Love of his life, Alfreda Cobb on October 23, 1954 and to this union four children were born. At an early age he received his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He later received the calling from Christ and became a Minister, Pastor, and a Bishop in Detroit, MI at Greater First Born Church Of The Living God. He was employed for thirty-seven years as an assembly technician in Detroit, MI where he retired from the Chrysler Corporation, shortly thereafter he relocated to Gainesville, FL .
