Bob served his country proudly during the World War II. He flew with the Eighth Air Force as an aerial gunner on B-17’s. He was discharged in 1945.

Following his commitment to his country Bob initially moved into sales representing various tire manufacturers throughout Maine. Next Bob became an account executive for WGAN in Portland, followed by a similar position with WABI-TV in Bangor. In the 70’s Bob went into business for himself, buying and operating the Fairmount Terrace Motel in Bangor.

Bob grew up in Waltham, Mass. He has been a follower of the Red Sox since junior high school, in the late ‘30’s, as well as the Patriots in his later years. Bob was an avid golfer and one time played in a foursome with his close friend Fred Rice, Ted Williams and Sandy Koufax at the PVCC.

Bob was a member of the Tarratine Club, the Lion’s, Hammond Street Church, PVCC, Maine State Golf Assoc. and US Golf Assoc. of America.

Bob is survived by his son, Robert Young and his wife, Daisy of Jacksonville, FL, Richard Young and his fiancée Suzanne of Gray, Me., stepson, Benjie Grant and his wife, Francine of Holden, Me. Bob is also survived by his grandchildren, Jeff Young and his wife, Adys of Miami, Fl., David Young of Jacksonville, Fl., Amy (Young) Carroll and her husband, Thomas of Jacksonville, Fl. and Maureen Vasquez and her husband, Bill of Carolina Beach, NC. Bob’s surviving great grandchildren include Allie Belanger, Emma, Sophie, Charlotte and Hamilton Young, Ella and Lily Carroll, Joseph Vargo IV as well as several nieces and nephews and a very special friend, June Horr.

The family encourages friends to pay tribute to Bob by joining them for conversation and refreshments at the Brookings-Smith Family Reception Center, 163 Center Street in Bangor between 11 AM and 1:00 PM on Saturday, October 19th.
