Born in Washington, DC, to the late John Albert and Billie May Fleischhauer Young, he grew up in Colonial Beach and District Heights, MD.

Always active, he was a past trustee and leader of the United Methodist Men and youth group at Colonial Beach United Methodist Church. He served on the Town Council in Colonial Beach and as council representative to the School Board – serving more recently as President of Colonial Beach Education Foundation.

He loved vacationing in Ocean City, MD and cherished time spent with family.
