      Kenneth Richard Young Loving Husband, Father and Grandfather Kenneth Richard Young, 82, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2006 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He lived a valiant and exemplary life to the very end, continually smiling and demonstrating kindness to everyone.

      He was born June 24, 1923 to Newell Knight Young and Geneva Cooley in Riverton, Utah. Ken married his sweetheart Blanche Allen on March 17, 1944 in Olympia, Washington. Their love for each other was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on October 1, 1944. They had five children, 19 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Blanche died on May 11, 1987.

Ken loved sports and played football and baseball at South High. He played baseball in the Coast Guard and later semi-pro baseball. Throughout his life, he attended numerous athletic events in which his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren played. He loved BYU sports; he was a loyal fan, win or lose. He savored every moment he could spend with his family. He enjoyed playing games and attending musicals and plays.
