Robert Carl Young

Robert “Bob” Carl Young died at his residence Saturday, Dec.24th. The son of William F. and Rosa Ingalls Young, he was born in Dallas April 22, 1916.

A veteran of the Army Air Corp, he served his country as a B17 pilot in the 94th Bomber Squadron during WW II. Among his honors, Bob has been recognized for his civic and volunteer work for Parkland Hospital and, recognized annually, for his decades of volunteer service to the American Red Cross by the Albina and Bob Young Lifetime Achievement Award. His anonymous donations to the scholarship fund for children at Parkland Hospital as well as his many civic services and volunteer work will remain a part of his generous legacy.

Bob was a gentleman of many interests and among his hobbies was the restoration of antique automobiles. Not a man of words, but as one who had an endearing smile, Bob will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
