On the 6th of November at 21:44 hrs., Ridge Meadows Detachment members attended the scene of a single vehicle rollover motor vehicle accident. The passenger of the vehicle was
A/Cst. Patrick Young, who suffered minor injuries and was transported to Royal Columbian Hospital. Patrick however passed away due to complications of an infection from a cut to his hand which he suffered at the time of the accident. Patrick was 45 years old.
Patrick was trained as an Auxiliary at Burnaby Detachment and graduated on the 15th of March 2002. He was still serving with the Auxiliary Program until his death.
Our thoughts are with the Young family: mother Ruth, sisters Patricia and Margaret, brother Irvine, and sons Richard and Andrew.
Funeral Arrangements are as follows:

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the following charity in Patrick’s name:

The family has asked for Regular Members and Auxiliary Members to wear uniform. Review Order #1 with Stripped Sam Browne and Medals is authorized as per the UDM. Auxiliary members are to wear their best available uniform. There is no march planned.
I had the pleasure of knowing Patrick personally.
Rest In Peace.
