Obituary: Richard F. Young, 51, formerly of Milford

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Richard F. Young, age 51. He passed away in his sleep on November 4th. He was the loving son of Peggie Young of Milford and the late Dick Young.

Richard grew up on Milford and Monroe and was a 1980 graduate of Masuk High School where he played football and ice hockey.

He was a lifelong fitness enthusiast and weight-lifter. For years he had his own painting business and most recently returned to school.

He was a devoted son who became his father’s primary care-giver in his final years, and was a great support to his mother. His love of his dogs is legendary.

Survivors include his sisters Cynthia McCurdy and Leslie Esposito, his brothers-in-law, Hank McCurdy and Frank Esposito; his niece and nephews Katie, John and Harrison McCurdy and Richard Vega; as well as his aunts, uncles and cousins.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, November 16th at 2:00 pm at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Monroe, CT.
