YOUNG Hugh F. Young, Jr. (Age 68) Passed away on September 12, 2018, with his wife of 47 years and his four children by his side. Born in Japan to Army Colonel Hugh F. Young, Sr., and Ida Virginia Young, Hugh lived in many places during his childhood. From Heidelberg, Germany, to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the world and its vastness inspired Hugh from an early age. In his sophomore year, Hugh's family moved to Alexandria, Virginia, where he met his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Gayle. Northern Virginia ultimately became Hugh's permanent home and the nexus of a multifaceted and impactful legal career. After attending Princeton University and Georgetown Law, Hugh worked at Sperry Rand and later at the National Paint and Coatings Association. His professional "home," however, was the Product Liability Advisory Council, where he served as president from 1993 until late 2017. What defined Hugh, though, was not his appreciation of the larger world, or even his professional accolades. Hugh's greatest joy was his family. Ferociously loyal and unrelentingly generous, especially with his children, Hugh relished his role as husband and patriarch. He was a passionate helper, a thoughtful adviser, and a principled teacher. Hugh's mind and presence were powerful-but his love was even mightier. He was a force. Hugh is survived by his wife, Gayle Young; children Trey Young, Cameron Young, Lucy (Matt) Williams, and Lily Young; and sisters Virginia Leback and Karen Wentz. A memorial service in honor of Hugh will be held at Money & King Funeral Home in Vienna, VA, on Saturday, September 22, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Pets for Vets in Hugh's name.
