This information is from the obituary published in the Charles City Press:

Richard "Dick" Young was born on November 21, 1943, and died November 12, 2011, in Hickory Hills Woods near Bassett, Iowa, at age 67.  Living family members include his wife of 47 years, Kay (Perrin), and  two children, Brian (Heidi) Young and Jill (Bill) Eckenrod.  He is also survived by four grandchildren.

Dick worked construction for Bud Moltz, and started Young Construction LTD after Bud's retirement.  He owned and operated the company with his wife until the time of his death.  Dick was an avid deer and turkey hunter.  He captured many wildlife photos on his trail cameras and loved sharing them with his friends and family.  He maintained a very large garden.  The family spent many weekends camping, having bonfires, fishing, and hunting in the woods.  Dick enjoyed ballroom dancing with Kay, performing magic tricks, clowing, and listening to his favorite gospel musicians, The Gaithers and Lynda Randle.
