Robert Alden Young, son of Benjamin Harrison and Martha Christella Jensen Young, passed away at age 79, peacefully at home June 3, 2003, after a prolonged illness which ended in a courageous battle with cancer.

Bob has been attended faithfully for years by his wife Lillie, who has put Bob first to see to his comfort and needs. She even gave up her temple work during the final stages of his prolonged illness to care for him.
