Young, of Bowdoin, loving husband and father was called home to rest at age 79. Brad was born on January 17, 1942 in Brunswick, Maine to S. Lewis and Mary (Small) Young. He worked at US Gysum, as a Tinsmith Supervisor at BIW and as a truck driver, hauling cars throughout New England. His extensive travel earned him the family keeper of all shortcut routes to any destination along the east coast. On July 3, 1965 he married Evelyn Small. A true family man, who would give the LLBean flannel shirt off of his back, celebrated he and Evelyn's 50th wedding anniversary among 5 generations of family in 2015. He and Evelyn lived in Bowdoin and spent time yard-saling, eating out, and attending many fairs to watch horse pulling. Brad had a love for old western movies (and John Wayne) and could watch them for hours. Brad loved family gatherings, holding many informal night and weekend get-togethers in his own garage. You could always count on a full beverage fridge and an open door. Wearing his cowboy hat, he was always the life of the party. He had a fondness for buying and selling ponies, and pulling them. He especially loved hunting and fishing with his sons and grandsons, passing on his passion in story and real time. Brad was skilled in metal fabrication, building trailers, truck bodies, and plant hangers to name a few. He helped local farmers by trucking and selling thousands of cedar posts from Northern Maine. In retirement, working with wood he built and sold many raised garden beds and boot jacks, but above all, one of "Pa's" greatest joys was his grandchildren (and great grandchildren). Whether he was telling stories, sharing humorous songs and rhymes or showing them collected treasures, he reveled in time spent with them. Brad was preceded in death by his father, mother, brother Larry, son-in-law Dean Cornish, and brother-in-law Vernon Harmon. He is survived by his wife, Evelyn, of 55 years, son Larry Young and wife Rose of Bowdoin, daughter Holly Fournier of Topsham, son Bryan Pratt and wife Diane of Mississippi, son Bradley Young Jr of Mississippi, sister Shirley Harmon of Bowdoin, son-in-law Tom Fournier of Harpswell and James McManues of Brunswick. His open lap and loving smile will be remembered by grandchildren Jennifer (and David) Wienckowski, Michelle (and Justin) Keleher, Angela (and Jonathan) Rogers, Caitlyn (and Jared) Gilbert, Shelby (and Chris) Hutchins, Danielle (and Jeff) Parks, Marcie (and Christian) Biagetti, Seth Fournier (and Danielle Macdonald), Amy Cornish and Chad Cornish. Privileged memories will be held onto by 20 great-grandchildren, many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and close friends. One of Pa's last requests to one of his great-grandsons was to "not cry when I'm gone, but to smile and remember all of the good times we had. " Visiting hours will be held 4:00-7:00 pm Friday, June 18, 2021 at Kincer Funeral Home, 130 Pleasant St. Richmond. We will celebrate those good times and memories with a graveside service 11:00 am on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at the West Bowdoin Cemetery, 54 West Rd, Bowdoin; a gathering will follow.

Richmond-Roland George Goben, 68, died on May 15, 2021, following a long illness. To all his friends and family he was known as Ron. Ron was born in Bath, Maine, on March 12, 1953, to Norman and Barbara Goben. As a youngster, Ron raised his own cows, chickens, and sheep on the family's farm in Durham. He belonged to 4-H and showed his animals at county fairs. He also helped his mother bake pies for Goben's Home Bakery shop in Durham. This led to a life-long love of baking - a gift he happily shared much to the joy of family, friends, and co- workers. He took joy, too, in loving his numerous dogs over the years, in gardening, and in working on his old home in Richmond's historic village. All who knew him were continually enchanted by his quick wit and sense of humor. He took the greatest joy in preparing meals for and entertaining his family and friends. Ron attended Freeport High School and graduated from Edward Little in Lewiston in 1972. He went into the air force and earned his college degree in accounting. He didn't enjoy office work, and spent much of his career working with his hands, mostly for Wiscasset Hardware. For the last ten years he greatly enjoyed working part-time at K & G Hardware in Richmond. He loved his customers and co-workers and took great pride in good service. Ron was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his daughter, Christal Rose Stroud of Lisbon Falls; his granddaughter, Taylor Melanson and husband, Mathew, and great- granddaughter, Liliana Melanson of Leeds; his brother, Norman Goben of New York City; and his partner of 32 years, Mark Knierim of Richmond.

He was born in a small log cabin his father built in the woods of northern Wisconsin.
