Dwight J. Young, 84, went peacefully home to the Lord, his Maker, on January 13, 2009.

He loved his family deeply and was the proud father of his son, Brian Young, and daughters, Heather Allan and Jennifer Young, and loving grandfather to Rachel and Sarah Allan.

Dwight was born on June 29, 1924, in San Francisco, CA and moved to San Diego with his parents later in his childhood. As a young man, he was an outdoorsman and spent time as a lifeguard on the San Diego beaches. His love of nature continued throughout his life and he enjoyed traveling, hiking, camping, skin diving, bird watching and was passionate about meteorology. With his children, he deposited his love for football, reading, opera, ballet, and puns.

He was a thoughtful, caring friend who loved to have deep conversations and find humor in life. He was blessed with a gifted mind and a thirst for knowledge which he used for 30 years as a teacher. Initially, he taught social studies and science in junior and senior high, and later was a philosophy professor at San Diego City College and Mesa College where he was greatly respected by staff and students as a friendly, energetic scholar.

His family rejoices that he has been redeemed from death and is in the presence of his loving Creator.
