Philip A. Young, 82, clockmaker, of Belfast passed away at home on April 20, 2019. Born to Philip and Mary Young in Edinburgh, Scotland, Philip moved to the United States in 1977, eventually settling in Belfast with his wife of 58 years, Isobel. Philip considered himself a great clockmaker and was regarded as one of the best in the business. He was never shy about giving his opinions to anyone who would listen.

"Under the wide and starry sky Dig the grave and let me lie: Glad did… I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he long'd to be; Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter home from the hill.” —Robert Louis Stevenson.

Philip was predeceased by his parents Philip M. Young and Mary (Miller) Young.

He is survived by his wife Isobel of Belfast; children, Wendy Lynch and her husband Leo of Belfast, and Edward Young and his wife Betsy of Brooks; grandchildren, Sean Lynch, and Heather Desrochers and her husband Steven; great-grandchildren, Simon, and one-on-the-way Louise.

Per Philip’s wishes, there will be no services. Donations may be made in his name to your local animal shelter.
