Taps: Richard S.W. Young

August 6, 2021

Richard Sung Wah Young, 73, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on May 20, 2021. He was a loving husband, wonderful father, grand- father, brother, and loyal friend.

Colonel (ret) Richard Young, a civil engineer, was the Facilities Management Officer for the Hawaii Army National Guard.

He also commanded the 103rd Troop Command and later became the United States Property and Fiscal Officer for the Hawaii National Guard. He retired with more than 28 years of distinguished, dedicated service.

After retiring from the military, Richard went on to work at Engineering/Remediation Resources Group, Inc. as a contractor, and Nan, Inc., as a project manager.

Richard loved cooking and enjoyed sharing his culinary feasts with family and friends. He was an avid golfer. Strumming his ukulele gave him hours of enjoyment. He loved catching waves on his paddleboard and just being with nature. We will all miss his kind and gentle ways.

He is survived by his wife Candace; his sons Richardson, Janson (Nikki); daughter Lana (Chris) Hodges; grandson Braden; sisters Raelene Chock and Geriann Hong.

Private services were held.
