"After high school, we didn’t know what he was going to do. Then he said he wanted to go to the Computer Learning Center in Alexandria. He graduated, and we were all so proud of him. He just liked to learn about computers. He wanted to find out what else he could do, to push himself. He was taking lots of computer tests, trying to move up in the world. He was a person who didn’t like to stay where he was." -- Margaret Young, mother

It was not uncommon for us (his family members) to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to find him outside dribbling, shooting and practicing his basketball moves. He was very determined to pass down his determination and will for the game to his son, nephew and younger sister; therefore he practiced all the time. We miss those things about him, but they still live on in our hearts."</p> <div id="memAuthor">-- Margaret Young, mother <!-- /end memAuthor --></div> <!-- /end blurb --></div> <br> </div> </div>
