Born and raised in New York, Young teamed with Sandler in the 1960s. The tuxedo-clad pair headlined major hotel and casino showrooms in both the United States and abroad, and made countless guest appearances on top-rated television variety shows. They released 22 albums, sometimes singing songs in both English and French, Italian, German or Flemish (Sandler's native tongue from Flanders Belgium).
Young retired at age 65 to spend more time with his family. Sandler, who was 16 years younger, continued to perform, and the two occasionally reunited for concerts, the last one when Young was in his mid-80s in Palm Springs in an All Stars Concert ‘Let Freedom Ring’ in honour of the victims of 9/11. Young died August 22, 2008, at his home in Palm Springs, California, after a brief illness. He was 90. He was survived by his wife, Arlene; his children, Neil, Arleen, Guy (and wife Bobbi), Lauren, Rachel (and husband Jose); and his five granddaughters and grandson, Morgan, Riley, Jordan, Allie, Piper and Brody.  and is buried at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City, California.
