Robert Terry Young
Robert Terry Young of Quogue NY passed away peacefully at home on September 15th 2019, age 78.  He was the son of Dorothy and Walter A. Young of Freeport, New York. He enjoyed building cars with the Freeport Rod Snapper Race Club, spending time on the bay fishing, clamming, and duck hunting. It was this love for being on the water that compelled him to work on environmental preservation later in life.
Robert served in the United States Navy from 1964 through 1968. Following his time in the service, he attended the State University College of Oswego and received Bachelor of Science Cum Laude, Master of Science in Industrial Arts and later received a School Administrator and Supervisor Degree. It was at Oswego where Robert met his loving wife of 50 years, Roberta Owen.
Robert’s true passion was teaching and helping young people learn and achieve their full potential. He worked for Lindenhurst Public High School as a Teacher and Administrator of the Industrial Arts Department for 30 years. Simultaneously, Robert and Roberta managed the Surf Club of Quogue during the summers for 42 years, where he was known as T.Y. It was here they made life-long friendships and continued teaching and mentoring the many youth and staff at the club.
Robert is survived by his wife Roberta and two children Owen and Amanda.  Owen and his wife Kristina have two children, Christofer and Janey, and reside in Topsfield, MA.  Amanda and Christopher Clapp and two children, Dylan and Lily, reside in Westhampton Beach, NY. Robert is also survived by his loving sister Lauren Petersen, and her husband Leland.
Service will be held at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge, 3 Old Country Rd., Quogue, NY 11959,  on Friday September 27th at 11:00 AM.  All are invited to attend.
