Former Mayor of Lac La Biche and businessman Duane Young’s funeral was held earlier this morning at the Bold Centre.
An aboriginal drum group escorted pallbearers and family into the service after a procession made its way through town. Estimates suggest as many as 1,200 were in attendance.
Young was known for his generosity and the mutual respect between himself and local First Nations and Metis communities. He will be sorely missed.
