Death of a retired Police Officer : Sgt 580 David W. Young

Dave Young

It is with regret that we have to inform you of the unexpected death of a retired Police Officer :  Sgt 580 David W Young who died on Wednesday 2nd July, aged 55 years.

Dave joined Durham Constabulary in 1982 and after leaving HQ training worked at Seaham Town and New Seaham before going into Peterlee ASU in April 1989.  From July 1989 to March 1990 Dave worked in CID at Peterlee before returning to Seaham.  In August 1991 he moved to Chester-le-Street, going on to serve at Sherburn in January 1996 and returning to Seaham in 1998 on promotion.  He went on to spend two years as Custody Sergeant at Peterlee and returned to Seaham from September 2001 until September 2004. Dave then worked on the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit in the North Area for 15 months before taking over the Executive Management lead at Durham Agency Against Crime.
He leaves a wife, Carole, who many of you will recall from her long service with the Constabulary.  Dave was also father to Rebecca, Matthew and Adam and to Emma.

The funeral service is to be held at 1.15pm on Monday 14th July 2014 at Elvet Methodist Church, Durham City, to be followed by cremation.
Parking around the church can be problematic so anyone attending the service may need to take this into consideration when planning their arrangements.
Friends and former colleagues are asked to please meet at church, and Carole and family have expressed an open invitation to join the family for refreshments at The Stonebridge PH, Durham, after the service.
Family flowers only would be preferred however anyone wishing to make a donation, in lieu of flowers in Dave’s memory, is asked to consider making this to St Cuthbert’s Hospice, Durham City please.
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
