In Loving Memory Patrick Elliott Young March 6, 1917 - Dec. 3, 2021 Patrick E. Young was born in Shanghai, China March 6, 1917 to English and Irish parents, Sir Cyril and Lady Gertrude Young. He passed Dec. 3, 2021 in his sleep at his home at Northwest Place Retirement Community, just shy of his 105th birthday. His early years were spent in Shanghai (the Paris of the East) and Hong Kong, followed by seven years of boarding school and college in Guernsey, England as was the norm in those days. Returning to Shanghai, he worked until he joined the Royal Navy Reserve in HK during WWII and commanded a mine sweeper in the harbor. After HK fell in 1941, Patrick spent the next four years as a P.O.W. interned by the Japanese. Repatriated after the war back to London, he enjoyed some much deserved leisure time, when he met his wife Sadie R. Beattie in late 1945, whom he married the following year. They went back to Shanghai (where she was also raised) and had two children Patricia and Veronica. They left China when the communists took over in 1949 and moved to Tokyo, Japan where their 3rd daughter, Nancy was born. Patrick worked there as an import-exporter until he transferred to head up the San Francisco office in 1953. Christopher, his only son, was born in Marin county in 1965. His expertise was in metals, mining and wood products which eventually lead him to jobs in L.A, Miami and then Portland in the mid 70's when he set up the international division of Niedermeyer Martin. Patrick loved stamp collecting, gardening and being outside. He started actively exercising in his 80's when Sadie had some health issues. Each year, he looked forward to walking in the Portland Relays to the Coast; the Shamrock Runs; and the Jingle Bell Runs up until age 102. He always wore his kilt and won the eldest participant trophies and was an inspiration to other younger walkers. At 94 he won Portland Clinic's "healthiest 90 year old contest," winning a cruise to Alaska and his five minutes of fame on TV. He traveled extensively for business and he and Sadie continued to travel the world for pleasure after he retired. They had 72 great years together! He was preceded in death by both parents; his wife, Sadie; his elder brother, Sir John Young; and his younger sister, Margot Claremont (London). He is survived by his younger brother, Michael Young (Australia); his children, Patricia (Tim) Chapman; Veronica (Drew) Anguish; Nancy (Rick) Lehman and son, Christopher BH Young; grandchildren, Amanda (Tim) Richter, Gillian, Molly and Andrew Anguish and Chad and Todd Lehman and great-grandchild, Hazel MacNair. He led his life with honesty and integrity. We will always remember him for his zest for life, his "can-do" attitude and "everything in moderation" motto for living. The memories of him will stay in our hearts forever. Final resting place: Bailieborough, Ireland.
