Rodarious Delane Young

April 24, 2000 ~ September 13, 2021 (age 21)


Rodarious Delane Young was born in Memphis, Tennessee on April 24, 2000 to Cassandra Harris and Rodger Young; and departed on September 13, 2021. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his grandmother, Sandra Leigh and seven Aunts and Uncles Annie (Greg) Liggings, Bobby Harris, Glenda (Timothy) Jordan, Jennifer Harris Jones, Gloria Crawford, Timothy (Jackie) Harris, and Sylvia Harris, and a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. He also leaves two sisters Bridgette Young and Lauren Guy, two nieces Maudria and Brandi, and two nephews, Brandon and Makhi, and one brother, RayJay Young.

Rodarious was also a part of the Guy/Caviness family, the family of the man who was there for many years to raise him, Mario Guy. I, as Rodarious’ mother am and will always be eternally grateful to him and his family.

Rodarious grew up in Memphis, TN and the family moved to Dallas, Texas in 2013 where he began a new journey and graduated from Townview High School. Rodarious began his college career at the University of Arlington in Arlington, Texas. He was a lover of nature, music, the Spanish language, and science. He loved all his family very much.

Tributes To Rodarious:

A bright young man with a beautiful spirit who left us too soon. I miss your hugs. You will be truly missed. I love you.

Love you always, 

Aunt Syl


My sweet Roy Boy,

I was there when you were born. You were the sweetest, chocolate baby boy ever. I loved you like you were one of my own. You were practically a ward of the Galloway household. All I hear you saying is, Menee I don’t eat meat. And I made sure you had what you could eat. You were never a problem. My sweet RoyBoy, I will never forget your smile. We all will miss you dearly.




Letter To My Brother

Hey Twin, It’s Me. I love you past life, and I am so proud of the man you became. I’m so thankful to have had you all these years. You were the male version of me. You helped me love me again; and you were an amazing Uncle to my kids, and I’m grateful. There are not enough words to express how much you mean to us; but you knew we all loved you unconditionally. You were more than just my brother. We became best friends. I’m truly going to miss you. You brought so much joy to my life. Our conversations about life were everything. You were for sure, one of a kind.

Love always, Bridgette.


Message From April

“You should study abroad once Corona calms down.”

That was the last message I sent you. I was so impressed by your intrinsically motivated desire to learn Spanish. I will always remember you as an intelligent, extraordinary young man who was wise beyond his years. I admired the way you took care of your sister and your mother. Please continue to protect and watch over them.




Message from Your Mother:

Roy, (as your grandfather Bobby Gene used to call you) I was honored to be your mother. You have given me so much joy in the short 21 years of your life. I have a ton of memories to hold on to. I will miss your smile, your laugh, your hugs, our phone calls, and you telling me you love me immensely. Your “Sister Dear” Lauren as you called her loves and misses you dearly. You will always be her “Bruhdee.” Thank you for always protecting and looking after us. We will forever have a hole in our hearts because you are no longer with us. I pray that you now have the peace you were looking for. Rest well my son and tell your grandfather, Bobby Gene we love and miss him. We know he is up there drinking his coffee playing his guitar.

Until we meet again, my son.

Love always and forever,
