Moton G. Young, Jr.

Moton G. Young, Jr., 88, of Carlisle, AR went to be with our Lord on March 26, 2023. He was born on July 27, 1934, to Josephine and Moton Young.

Gaines, the most loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and brother is survived by his wife of 66 years, Sue; Son Greg (Michelle, Charl); Daughter Mary Charl Korita (Eric, Parker, Lawson, Caroline); and Sister, Janet Collier. 

Gaines graduated from Carlisle High School in 1952, and attended Henderson State University for two years before he went to serve his country in Germany. While attending HSU, he met the love of his life, Sue Etchieson, of Arkadelphia. Immediately upon his return from Germany, Gaines and Sue were wed, and Gaines enrolled in the University of Arkansas where he graduated with a degree in General Business. 

Gaines worked for twenty-five years in the retail business and for twenty-five years in banking. He retired from Bank Corp South in Carlisle where he worked as a Trust Officer. 

Throughout his life he enjoyed spending time on the farm and supporting his grandchildren in their many activities.

He sang in the Carlisle United Methodist Church choir for 75 years. He served as an active member of the Lions Club, the Carlisle Airport Commission and was a past President of the Arkansas Furniture Association and the Boys Scouts Quapaw Council. 

The visitation and funeral service will be held at the Carlisle United Methodist Church Family Life Center/Sanctuary on Wednesday, at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Carlisle United Methodist Church and the Carlisle Lions Club.

  1. Sue and Janet, I am so sorry for your loss. That was the first thing I saw on my computer this morning I have not seen in in a while because after having Covid twice, I surely didn’t want him to get it from me.
    Their Christmas card came because I didn’t have the box number on it. And I just never got it to them. I’ll see you later today. Gaines was like the “Little Brother” I never had. I had two but they were older. With love and prayers for comfort, I am Your cousin. Chris Weems

    May God bless you all during this hard time of loss. Gaines was such a sweet man and we were honored to farm for him for a lot of years. He allowed Kevin and I to get a great start when we first got married and we will never forget his kindness towards us always. I know you all will miss him dearly but I am so glad that today he is fully healed. Sending our love and prayers today and in the days to come. Kevin & Christi Rounsavall

    I am very sorry to hear about Uncle Gaines. He was an honorable man and someone I respected immensely. He was always welcoming and made me feel at home when I visited Carlisle. I am privileged to have known him and thankful that he was a part of Mary Grace’s life.

    We are so sorry that we somehow missed, until today, the sad news of Gaines death on March 26th. We certainly will be praying for the Lord to comfort Sue and the family during this time of grief. Every time we were in the company of Gaines and Sue we were encouraged and have missed their company and his wonderful smile and funny remarks since we moved away from Arkansas in 1965. Nancy heard about his death today while dinning with some ladies at Parkway Village where we recently moved. God bless you all.
