Paul Richard Young

July 27, 1957 - October 14, 2010


Paul was a Structural Engineer and Senior Vice President with RBF Consulting, a widely respected nation wide engineering firm. During his 30-year career he directed the design and construction of many bridges and other structures. He was a respected teacher and mentor within his profession, and loved what he did for a living.

But his real loves were his family and the game of ice hockey. Whether it was playing, coaching or watching the game. He played ever since he was a boy, even on the day he passed to that great ice rink in the sky. He coached and played with each of his sons. His favorite team was the Kings, but he liked to say he had two favorite teams, the Kings, and any other team that was playing the Ducks.

Paul was devoted to providing for his family and assuring their happiness idolizing and caring for his wife, Debbie, and supporting his children, Laurel, Allen, and Kevin in their endeavors. He participated in and took great pride in all of their activities. Paul and his wife Debbie enjoyed more than 30 years of a very happy marriage together. They particularly loved spending time on camping trips enjoying hiking and biking.

Paul was an enthusiastic leader in the care and cohesion of his extended family and is survived by his wife Debbie; his children, Laurel, Allen & wife Jacky, and Kevin; his mother, Josephine; his brothers and sister, Joe & wife Carolyn, Steve & wife Diann, Mary & husband David Mulvihill.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Young family. My relationship with Paul centered around hockey. He was a great teammate and tremendous hockey player. My favorite memory was playing in a father and son pick up game this past summer with Paul, Allen and Kevin. Paul was so happy to be skating with his sons. It was easy to see he was a proud father. I know Paul loved the King’s Triple Crown line, but the Triple Y line looked every bit as good on that day. God Bless.

    So, so sorry for this tragic loss.

  3. I am still having difficulty accepting that Paul will not be walking down the halls with a smile at the office to share his vast knowledge of structural engineering or a great story about hockey or any number of other interests and passions that he so openly shared with coworkers and friends. He is missed on so many levels as he was a truly great man, and he will always be remembered.

    Please accept my condolences for the Young family.

    Paul was my friend and mentor. Never once did we start a work conversation before spending a few minutes talking hockey. Paul simply made the world a better place just by being a part of it and was a shining example of a superb professional and dedicated family man. I miss him deeply.
