DeForest "Dick" Young 1946-2010

Sad news from Pam Kirkwood (BHS '64)... we are praying for the family.

Here is more on the passing of De Forrest "Dick" Young BHS '63...I received this from Hugh Cannon '63...If you click on Dick's sons' blog link, there is a very nice obituary about him and some pictures...Pam

Hi Pam!
I have sad news. I don't know whether you heard that DeForrest ("Dick") Young ('63) died a few days ago of kidney failure, associated with acute diabetes. He was a dear friend to many of us. The word has gotten around to many of Dick’s Mormon friends through their network, but I'm sure there are a lot of others who remember him fondly and haven't heard. I was thinking may some of our Burbank "Loopers" would want to know.

His son posted a blog with pictures and a memorium. (

While Dick is from Burbank, he has lived in Colorado for many years, and the funeral will be there next Saturday. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Humanitarian Fund at,11666,6944-1-3685-1,00.html.

The online donation form has an “In memorium” feature that will let his wife, Kim, know a donation has been made in Dick’s memory (on the form, enter: Kim Young, 649 E. Kettle Avenue, Littleton, CO 80122.

The blog also has a place for us to leave comments and memories. - Hugh
