Born on September 9, 1934, in Middletown, MD, he was the son of the late Charles Edward Young and Alma Elizabeth (Bussard) Young.
He retired after many years from the Dustin Construction Company.
Paul truly loved life. He spent many hours designing and landscaping his property. He was very proud of his beautiful gardens and ponds. He enjoyed riding the golf cart down to the pond to feed his fish. His love of animals was endless from his rooster, Buffy, to his many peacocks and his many dogs named Jack. He enjoyed driving his 1950 Chevy around the track at the Frederick Fairgrounds. He loved listening to classic country music and collecting yard statues for his property. But most of all he cherished the time spent with family and friends. His family fondly remembers the many stories he would share with them and watching Charlie Brown during the holidays.
He is survived by his children, Paul R. Young, Jr and wife Sharon C., Donald L. Young and wife, Donna and Loretta Zimmerman and husband, Randy; brothers, Edwin, Merhle and Marion Young; sister, Dorothy Bailey; grandchildren, Paul R. Young, III, Timothy M. Young and Jen Young; great grandchildren, Hunter R. Young, Justin Brown and Brooke Young. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered by longtime loving, devoted companion, Joan Little.
