Retired LDS Entrepreneurs Die in Car Accident
Seattle WA Times 9Jul00 B2
By Carole Beers: Seattle Times staff reporter

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- Richard Young and Margaret Young died July 2 in an automobile accident near Idaho Falls, Idaho. Young, known as "Rick", 71 and his wife, "Peg", 70, owned and operated Image Control Systems (ICS) graphic-arts supply stores in Seattle, Portland, Spokane and Anchorage. According to daughter Joanne Young of Seattle, "Their partnership succeeded because his vision, humor and pride meshed well with his wife's patience and unselfishness."

"ICS has a customer base throughout the Northwest and provides equipment and production supplies to advertisers and printers," said Phil Van Duyne, vice president and general manager. The Young's success enabled them to raise Morgan horses on their dream ranch on Vashon Island. In 1980 the Youngs built Morningside Morgan Horse Farm. Later, it allowed them to retire in Washington, Utah where they were actively involved in their Mormon faith.

The couple joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1989. They were married for eternity in the Mormon Temple in 1992, when they moved to Utah, while retaining ownership of ICS. Once, tapped for a donation to the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Young suggested that the orchestra members "play for their supper" in his barn. He invited the entire Vashon community for a free show. "It was a generous act, but the traffic jam gave the Vashon police fits," said friend and ICS office manager David McMullen.

In addition to his daughter, Mr. Young is survived by his son, Brian Young of Kirkland; brothers John Young, Seattle, and Gene Young, Idaho and two granddaughters. Mrs. Young is survived by her brothers August Pique Sr. of Biloxi, Miss., and Charles Pique of Long Beach, Miss.

Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 9330 S.W. 204th St., Vashon Island and on July 22 in Long Beach, Miss.
