Demetrice “Flip” Tyrone Younger, age 39 of Bridgeport CT, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at Yale New Haven Hospital, surrounded by the love and comfort of his family.
Demetrice was born August 22, 1977 in Bridgeport, CT., the beloved son of Marvin Earl Hooks & Teresa Orlean Younger. He was educated in the Bridgeport Public Schools.
Demetrice was known as a ‘Gentle Giant.’ Despite his stature, he was a kind and compassionate man. His smile was infectious and his laugh could lift the heaviest of hearts. He loved music and enjoyed watching sports such as basketball, baseball, and football. He was a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan. But nothing made him happier than spending time with his princess Damytria. She was his baby, his only daughter and as Damytria
says “he was her best friend”.
Demetrice leaves to cherish his memories his companion of 10 years, Yasmicsha Di-Attii Allen; daughter, Princess Damytria Tiyonna Jaylan Younger; brothers, Marquis Joseph Tyrell Younger and Desmond Crooks; sister, Erica Teresa Younger; Godmother, Loretta Edmonds; God-brothers, Corey Edmonds and PJ Jenkins; aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of extended family and friends.
Demetrice was pre-deceased by his maternal grandparents, Joseph Lee Younger and Dorothy Evelyn Younger; his paternal grandmother, Mary Francis Hooks; a special grandfather figure, Abraham Sparks; and paternal aunt Wilhelmina Flowers. Flip was a quiet and kindhearted guy who will be greatly missed.
Friends may greet the family on Fri. 6/2/17 from 10-11AM. A Home Going Service will proceed at 11-12 noon at Calvin United Church of Christ 901 Kings HWY E. Fairfield, CT. 06824.
