Paul Young passed away Friday, March 12, 2021 at age 79 surrounded by his loving family and friends.
Paul joined the Navy at an early age and was stationed in places across the world. He retired in March 1978, began working for DuPont, and really enjoyed traveling to Raleigh, NC for the company. He retired from DuPont after 18 years.
Paul enjoyed golfing as a member of the DuPont Country Club and camping with his family from Maine to Kentucky. He really enjoyed fishing at Kerr Lake, VA where he would always catch a large fish. When at home, you could find him on the computer playing games or with his family and beloved dog Smokey. Most of all, you could find him playing the penny slot machines at Delaware Park and every now-and-then he would win. He enjoyed being ‘Pop-pop’ to all 8 of his grandchildren and supporting them in their various sports and programs.
Paul was predeceased by his parents Louis and Marie Young, brothers Leon, Jerry, Ray, Joe, Charles, Jim, John, Tom, and Jude, sisters Pearl and Mary, son Frank, granddaughters Ashley Marie and Kimberly Anne, and his beloved dog, Smokey. Also preceding him were his sidekick Austin Beavers, father-in-law John Ternoski, sister-in-laws Helen Ternoski, Leta Calhoun and Julie Bugge.
He leaves to cherish his memory: his wife of 57 years Catherine (Porky); son Paul Jr. and wife Cheryl Mullins, their daughters Amanda and Jessica; son John and wife Kathleen Howell, their son John Jr. and wife Jessica Penney, son Michael and daughter Madison; daughter Jennifer and husband Mark Buckalew, their daughter Caitlin and fiancé Ryan; son Michael and wife Kristen Craig, their sons Michael Jr. and Logan; mother-in-law Mary Ternoski and niece Stefanie Cain and husband John; sister-in-law and Paul’s sidekick at Delaware Park, Joanne Beavers, her son Scott and wife Bridget, their son Ethan; brother-in-law John Ternoski Jr. and wife Susan Kirby, their children J.J., Karen, and Brian; brother-in-law Herman Bugge and children Jake, Julie, and Sissy; sisters Veronica, Roberta, and Rita and brothers Dan and Gene.
