Gary’s Early Life

Gary Young was born July 11, 1949, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and spent his childhood with his parents and five siblings in a very small cabin without running water or electricity until the age of four. Gary’s father then built a 30 x 30-foot, four-room cabin, where Gary lived with his parents and five siblings until he was 17 years old. This cabin was 12 miles from town and also had no electricity or running water.
