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 would like to offer my deepest sympathies to the family of Paul Young. I worked closely with Paul at Flour in the 80’s on a special project and am very glad I had the opportunity to get to know him. Although I had not spoken to Paul in a number of years, I will always remember him as a friend. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  3. Paul was a very special friend and I was blesssed working with him at Fluor, studying with him at CSULB,playing with him in Big Bear on the snow ball weekends, and celebrating with him at Allen and then again at Amy’s weddings. All of the Kilpatricks send our heartfelt sympathys. Debbie, Allen, Laurel,Kevin and Jackie, thanks for sharing Paul with us.

  4. I was very sorry to hear about Paul passing away and this is a very difficult time. I know that many of his great traits will live on us forever.
    A wise man once told me Paul Young, when my father had passed away a person lives on forever in the hearts of those they influenced and taught. I know Paul will live in me and the things he taught me will pass from this generation to the next ones.
    Although this is a sad time, I know Debbie, Laurel, Allen and Kevin can take comfort in knowing that all of the great things your husband and father taught you and all the great memories you have together with him will never be taken away.
    My prayers are with you and your family.

  5. I was very shocked and sad to hear about Paul’s passing away.

    I truly enjoyed working with him these past 12 years at RBF. Paul has been the one boss that has stood out from any other boss I have had in that he was so exceptional in every way.
    He was very gifted in structural engineering. If ever I had a structural question, after talking to Paul, any confusion was cleared away as he had a way of explaining things that made things crystal clear.
    And of course, we all knew about his favorite hobby: hockey. He would come in to work after a hockey game with a black eye and jokingly say that Debbie beat him up again.
    He was a very fair boss, a good guy to work with, a good family man, and I still don’t understand why he had to leave us, but in life sometimes, you can’t understand everything, nor does it make sense like structures does when Paul explained it. :

    I extend my deepest sympathies to his wife Debbie, his children Laurel, Allen and Kevin, his mom, brothers and sister and extended family.
