AUSTIN — Our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend returned to his loving Father in Heaven May 29, 2020, at his home surrounded by his family after recently being diagnosed with cancer. Bernard “Corky” Ronald Youngkin was born Sept. 7, 1943, in Myrtle Point, Oregon, to Paul Charles Youngkin and Lorraine Isabel Edwards. He married the love of his life, Vivian Kay Brown, Oct. 29, 1966, in Reno, Nevada. Later they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti temple, June 19, 1973.

Corky joined the Army when he was just 17 years old. Afterward, he worked in civil service at the Tooele Army Depot. He and Vivian were ordinance workers in the Manti temple. Some of his favorite activities included fishing, camping, four-wheeling, sitting on his porch looking at the mountains, visiting with family and friends and watching the Jazz and Cougars. He bled BYU true blue.

He is survived by his wife, Vivian; children, David (Lafonda, deceased) Maddox, Oklahoma; Vickie (David, deceased) Parker, Central Valley; Julie (John) Cope, Richfield; Connie (Keith) Hayes, Salina; Paul Youngkin, Austin; Dennis (Lisa) Youngkin, Richfield; 14 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; and sister, Juanita Lovett, California.

He is preceded in death by his parents; son-in-law, David Parker; daughter-in-law, Lafonda Maddox; and siblings, Paulette Runge, Bobbie Clifton, Sharon Decker and Nick Youngkin.

Graveside services will be held Friday, June 5, at noon, in the Koosharem Cemetery with services conducted by Bishop Dwight Jenkins of the Monroe LDS 4th ward.
