Harold was born in Bentley Creek, PA, to the late Elbridge and Marion (Crainey) Young. He was an employee of Remington Rand and retired after 25 years of service. After moving from Bentley Creek to the Camp Hill area, he worked for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and for several years was a school bus driver.
