November 6, 1943 �" September 11, 2010

John Gary Young died in Birmingham, Alabama from an ongoing heart condition after a lengthy illness which had kept him hospitalized for almost a year. He had retired from United Airlines at San Francisco Airport in 1998 after some thirty years of service and moved back to Alabama to live with his family.

Gary, who lived South of Market during his almost twenty years in San Francisco, loved cats, visiting all the bars in his neighborhood, and meeting new people. He was a warm and wonderful friend who will be missed by all who had the good fortune to meet him.

Gary is survived by one brother, two nephews and several great-nephews and -nieces.
