The Dr. Keith W. Young Memorial Historic Preservation Fund was created to honor the life of this well-known Aurora dentist.
Dr. Young (1932-2004) was a graduate of the Northwestern University Dental School. He practiced in Aurora for nearly fifty years and also was a faculty member at the Loyola School of Dentistry.
He served as president of the Fox Valley Dental Society and maintained memberships with the Chicago and Illinois State Dental Societies, the American Dental Association, the Royal Society of Health and the Walter Reed Society.
In addition, the Association for Individual Development recognized him for his extraordinary assistance to their organization.
An avid outdoorsman, he traveled to all seven continents of the world.
Dr. Young and his wife Barbara (1934-2012) had four children – Dr. Kimberley Young, Tracy Newman, Skeffington Young and Betsy Lutch.
Their daughter, Dr. Kimberley Young, practices dentistry in the office she had shared with her father.
