Henry Young III ’53

Published in Oct. 9, 1996, issue

With sorrow we report the death of Hank Young, who died June 22, 1996, at his home in Stockton, N.J. He was 69.

Born in Morristown, N.J., July 22, 1926, Hank was the son of Henry Young Jr. '22 and Ethel Roberts. He graduated from St. Paul's School and was accepted by Princeton into the Class of '48. However, the U.S. was in the midst of WWII, and Hank saw active duty in the military by volunteering for the Army Air Corps. He entered Princeton with our class in 1949 and lived off campus.

He had been a plant manager for City Service Co. in Trenton. Active in the Society of Colonial Wars, Hank was New Jersey governor of that organization from 198486 and deputy governor general of the General Society of Colonial Wars from 199092. He was a member of the Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem in Philadelphia.

Our very real sympathy is extended to his wife, Dorothy Ward Young; three sons, Donald, Henry, and Marcus; two sisters, Ethel Ritchie and Margaret Hancock; 10 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
