we consider many close calls with death became the order of the day. In all of this, he remained a true soldier. He battled his illness with dignity and inner resolve, not willing to just roll over and die. Even on his bed of affliction, he never lost sight of his vision for Jamaica. His involvement in the work of the Gospel here continued with every opportunity he got. Finally, let us consider... 4. Richey the Victor One may say that on August 2, 2014, Dr. Young lost the battle to his illness. I do not share that opinion. For he on that evening, minutes after 4 p.m., became a victor. He won the battle over illness. That was his victory day both physically and spiritually. This brother fought a good fight; he ran an excellent race; he finished the course well; he kept the faith. He will be rewarded by the Lord himself. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.... To be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  We salute and remember with affection and pride our colleague and friend Dr. Richey Lemar Young. And on the authority of God's Word we know that his soul is resting in peace with his Maker. We are comforted by the blessed hope that we will see him again in the sweet by and by. 4 Islander – November 2014
