YOUNG, Herbert (October 7, 1922-December 13, 2006)
Herb YOUNG, beloved son of the late Norman and Clara YOUNG of Guelph. Loving father of Suzanne Patricia (Douglas LEITH) of Southampton, and Peter Andrew (“Lisa” Mary Elizabeth JOHNSON) of Owen Sound. Adoring grandfather of Gillian, Meredith, and Andrew MARR - all of Toronto. Survived by his adored and loving wife Ruth (SHARPE) of Stirling and Belleville. Survived also by his brothers Joseph (Audrey) and Lloyd (Beatrice) of Guelph. Pre-deceased by his sister Ann (Lou), and brothers Sidney (Ruth) of Toronto, George (Shirley) of Kitchener, and Maurice (Muriel) of Guelph, and his first wife Doreen (DICKSON/DIXON) of Southampton. Survived also by many loving nieces, nephews and their families. Herb had a special place in his heart for his four-legged Friends - Sammy, Ginger and Apollo. Herb will be sadly missed by his close network of family, Friends and colleagues in the communities where he lived, worked and played. Herb lived in Guelph, Oshawa, Oakville, Windsor and Belleville. He spent his summers at the family cottage at Southampton on Lake Huron enjoying tennis and fishing with family and Friends. In Belleville, he was a longtime member of the Harbour Club and enjoyed playing squash and tennis with his many Friends and associates. Herb graduated from Guelph C.V.I. in 1941 and was awarded Ontario's largest scholarship, the Col. John McRae Scholarship to the U. of T. Two years later, in June, 1943, he decided to leave university and enlisted in the Army, serving as a Lieutenant attached to the Royal Canadian Regiment (R.C.R.), until the end of World War 2. However, when the war in Europe ended in May, 1945, the Canadian government decided to create a new Airborne Division, made up of volunteers, to serve in the Far East where the war in the Pacific against Japan was still raging. Again, Herb volunteered, and was sent to Vernon, British Columbia where he was appointed Acting Captain, Second-in-Command, and Company Training Officer of “A” Company, #3 - Infantry Training Battalion, #2 - Pacific Training Brigade. When the war ended, Herb returned to the U. of T., graduating in 1947 with a B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering. He was initially employed for three years by Fiberglass Canada Ltd. at Newark, Ohio and at its newly built plant in Sarnia. He spent three years as a Management Consultant with J.D. Woods and Gordon, followed by sixteen years with affiliated companies, with the final seven years as President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Dominion Forging Co., Windsor, Ontario, the largest steel forging company in Canada. During this period, he was also a director in a number of additional companies including the Braun Engineering Co. of Detroit, International Tools Ltd. of Windsor, Welland Electric Steel Foundry Ltd., of Welland, and Security Capital Corp. of Toronto. He was also a director of the American Drop Forging Association. While residing in Windsor, he was a member of the Beach Grove Golf and Country Club and the Detroit Athletic Club. In 1970, after having had a lifetime interest in education, he accepted the presidency of Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology in Belleville, a fledgling new Ontario community college. He served in that position until his retirement in 1988. He served the Ontario College system as a member and as chairman of a number of committees. In 1986, while Chairman of the Committee of Ontario College Presidents, he was part of a small Ontario delegation sent to Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu province, China to arrange to “twin” the Ontario college system and to arrange for a student exchange with similar educational institutions in that province. In 1989, as the countries of Eastern Europe were freeing themselves from 50 years of Communism and from Russian rule, it became obvious that they would require considerable assistance from the “West”, including Canada. Herb, having travelled extensively in Europe in the past, and wishing to utilize his industrial and educational experience in this endeavour, offered his services to the federal Ministry of External Affairs and to the Canadian Executive Services Organization. Over the next 10 years, he served as a consultant on numerous projects in Central and Eastern Europe, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, and in the countries of Latvia, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Hungary and Romania. His final project in 1998, in Xian, China involved working with a research and development company to develop new and creative uses for titanium metals and alloys, with the end products being suitable for export markets. It was shortly after his return from China that he was diagnosed as having inflammatory neuropathy, a debilitating illness which he battled courageously until his death. Family and Friends are invited to call at the Burke Funeral Home (613-968-6968) 150 Church Street, Belleville on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, December 16, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. Reception to follow at Loyalist College. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery, Guelph. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, The Quinte Humane Society, or the charity of your choice. “Goodnight sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest” William Shakespeare.
