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.

  3. I had the privilege of working with Paul at RBF. He was absolutely one of my favorite people to work with. I remember attending a career fair with Paul and seeing how passionately he spoke about his work and his team. He was very dedicated to helping others succeed – a quality he likely portrayed on the ice as well. Paul was an exceptional mentor and a wonderful person. He will be greatly missed.

  4. We were so saddened to hear about Paul. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. I want to express my condolences to the Young Family. I worked for Paul for three years after graduating from college. He was my first engineering mentor and I learned a lot from him. I left RBF over 12 years ago, but RBF and the people I worked with have always had a special place in my heart and Paul was the reason. He was a great caring boss, very fair and generous. In the three years that I worked for him, I don’t have a single bad memory. He was very caring. Only a year after working at RBF I invited Paul and Debbie to my wedding, which was in LA, an hour drive, and he was kind enough to attend. Even though I didn’t see him much after leaving RBF, we spoke a couple of times and I’m very, very sadden by his sudden passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Young family. May God Bless him and may God give patience to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
