Robert Bartlett Young ILLU ’92

Our dear friend, husband, father and grandfather Bob Young, 74, passed away on December 12, 2009 following a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. More important to “Bachelor-Bachelor-Master-Master Bob” than his numerous accomplishments in the fields of journalism, banking, publishing & illustration or his college and graduate degrees from Dartmouth, Harvard Business, Columbia Journalism and Art Center in Pasadena was the joy he took in writing and painting, in good food, local and Italian wines, jazz and opera, travel, and the laughter he shared with his family and his many friends. Bob shared warmth and friendship with everyone he met, and he will be greatly missed by the many who loved him. A small family service was held immediately upon his passing, and a spirited celebration of Bob’s life will be planned for mid-January.

Cremation has taken place, and his ashes will be scattered over many meaningful spots of his life’s landscape. He is survived by his wife Sally Young; his brother Bill Young; his children from his first marriage to the late Gretchen Roethke Young, William Young & Jody Young Llewellyn; his grandson & namesake Bartlett Llewellyn; his stepdaughter, Sally’s daughter Cara Martin; and a large & loving family full of nieces, nephews, and friends so close they became ‘adopted family.’ In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Bob’s honor to one of the following organizations: the Allied Arts Association of Cambria (artistsofcambria.com); the Foundation for the Performing Arts Center of San Luis Obispo (pacslo.org/fpac); the Cate School Kline-Roethke scholarship fund (cate.org); and Hospice Partners of the Central Coast (hospicepartners.org). To contact the family directly, please email Bob's wife Sally Young via email at sallyoung@sbcglobal.net
