James Young, 44, of Barrie, ON, passed away on September 3, 2012 with his wife Tina by his side after a long battle with Chron’s and Colitis, and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (a rare liver disease). He was born October 8, 1967 in Prince Albert, SK and raised in Spruce Grove, AB, the son of Arnold and Patricia (Haugland) Young.
At a young age, he discovered his passion for flying and was soon to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a pilot. While working in construction and building custom homes, he attended NAIT in Edmonton, AB, all while starting his flight training. He moved through several northern Canadian communities gaining the experience necessary to advance to Bearskin Airlines in Thunder Bay, ON and then on to the national airlines where he was employed by Air Canada Jazz.
He always said his office had the best view. If he could not fly it, then he drove it. James took an active interest in Jeeps and Motorcycles. He truly loved to ride and bring everyone together to do it. He will be greatly missed by his ‘Riding’ families. James is lovingly remembered and survived by his wife Tina (Zanandrea) Young; his parents Arnold and Patricia (Haugland) Young; sister Judy and her husband Gary Deans; sister Tami Young; sister Tricia Pearson; niece Hayley Deans; nephew Tyler Pearson; niece Sarah Pearson; and his in-laws: her parents Dino and Liisa Zanandrea; brother Steven Zanandrea and his partner Anna Nicks; brother Paul Zanandrea and his wife Melissa Harvey; and numerous Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends.
We have lost this important and influential member, suddenly and tragically this past week. Swapnil knew everyone in the Ottawa Chapter, was highly respected for his riding skills and loved for his friendly, open personality. He was incredibly devoted to his family and would bring his kids to the meet and greet to share his passion with them. They would sit and have dinner, while CMC friends wandered by his table and engaged him in conversation.
He walked the talk and his riding was all about safety. He was a serious guy only when he was leading a ride. These rides mostly happened at some early hour of the morning on the way to breakfast, in places like Calabogie or Hawkesbury. He would be finished breakfast, be done with the 511 and back home with his kids before any of the rest of us had cracked open an eyelid. He told me that he loved watching the sun come up while on the road. From the first “tales of the road” he posted on the forum when he joined us, to the day he left us, there was always a great story. A story told with that famous grin of his, a grin somewhere between happy and mischief.
This club is smaller today with his absence, but in missing him many of us have resolved to continue where he left off. To get out and ride with the same passion that he did. To hold onto a love of quiet open roads, the smell of a gentle mist on the fields, the power of the machine that let’s us fly, but mostly for the gift of watching the sun come up another day. A Swapnil kind of day.
