Life Science Publishing Tribute to D. Gary Young

The legacy of D. Gary Young is vast and remarkable! Not only did he create Young Living—the world leader of essential oils and products—but he also formulated unique distillations and blends that change lives for the better. And Gary did not stop there. Due to his extensive research and dedication to the cause of education, Gary founded the roots of Life Science Publishing (LSP). For almost 25 years, this publishing house has been the leader in essential oil education! As a third party, we compile the best research and education to support the knowledge and teachings that Gary already knew to be true.Gary Young was authentic in every way. He walked his talk. On so many occasions, one would find him working at 3 AM to get the distilling complete at just the right time. He was unwaveringly dedicated to his cause. His tenacity for distilling oils was just as strong as his belief in education about those life-changing oils. He knew that education is key for people to truly know the full benefits of these amazing oils. We are proud to further this legacy of education.Today, we honor D. Gary Young! His love of life. His love of adventure. His never-ending search for oils. His knowledge. His teachings. His persistence for excellence. His creation of the Seed to Seal® Process. His love of Young Living. His love of essential oils. His love of family. His fighting spirit!

He was unstoppable! Now, we too, must be unstoppable as we share his legacy and move forward together to spread Young Living Essential Oils and education to every home in the world! We have his example, we have his oils, and we his education. Together, we will be unstoppable like our founder, mentor, and friend…. D. Gary Young! We all love you, Gary!

Young Living is committed to honoring Gary Young’s legacy by fulfilling his mission of sharing the priceless benefits of our essential oils with every home in the world. As we move forward, it is important to take some time and honor our founder and to recognize the powerfully positive impact he has forever made on the lives of millions.Here are the details pertaining to the funeral service to be held for Gary:
  • The funeral will be held at 1 p.m., MT, on Friday, May 18, at the Whispering Springs Farm and Distillery, one of Gary’s favorite spots in the world. The farm is located at 3700 Old Highway 91 in Mona, Utah.
  • The funeral will be preceded by a viewing the same morning from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m., MT, located in the Show Barn. No photography or videography is permitted in the viewing area.
  • All Young Living members, employees, and members of the public are invited to attend the service. Those in attendance are also welcome to bring their families and guests. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The capacity for viewing the proceedings within the rodeo arena at the farm is approximately 4,000, with approximately 14,000 additional overflow seats at an ancillary location on the farm, where the proceedings will be broadcast.
  • We understand that many will be unable to attend the funeral in person but still wish to participate. We will be offering a live, worldwide broadcast of the service. More information on the broadcast will be coming shortly.
  • It was our intent to provide a shuttle service to and from the funeral; however, due to a lack of available inventory across several states, we aren’t able to secure an appropriate number of shuttles. As parking will be limited at the farm, we strongly encourage participants to carpool.
  • Please dress respectfully for the occasion and appropriately for the weather. Both the arena and ancillary location are outdoors. Please keep in mind that the weather changes quickly in spring in Utah.
  • Travel and hotel accommodations must be coordinated on your own.

Important Update Regarding D. Gary Young

Young Living
A Message from Jared Turner
To our valued Members, employees, partners, and friends,It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that my mentor and friend, our beloved founder Gary Young, passed away peacefully today in Salt Lake City, Utah, surrounded by his closest family and friends due to complications resulting from a series of strokes.

Even though he wouldn’t want us to feel this way, everyone at Young Living is heartbroken by this loss. We take solace in remembering the special man who was such an iconic pioneer and messenger for essential oils and their benefits to people around the world.

Gary was the undisputed leader of the global essential oil movement. He spent 35 years studying the benefits and perfecting the extraction of essential oils, while building a billion-dollar plus global business designed to share what he deemed “the gift” of essential oils with millions of people.

His commitment to physical and emotional well-being, combined with his lifelong love of nature, drove him to learn everything about essential oils – from how they are produced to their wellness benefits. He was passionate about providing all of our members with only the highest quality oils, sourced from our own farms and Seed to Seal-certified suppliers and partners across the globe, so that millions can enjoy the full benefits of these amazing natural gifts today.

Those who knew Gary understood that no man ever had a bigger heart or was more devoted to the betterment of humanity. His love for others, empathy, and forgiving nature were always on display across his roles as a husband, father, farmer, researcher, leader, explorer, innovator, mentor, philanthropist, and more. Gary’s “maverick” spirit, unfailing work ethic, and passion for life inspired everyone around him to be better, bolder, and kinder. He not only pioneered and created the product category of high quality essential oils as a mainstream wellness solution, but he also raised the bar for quality standards and created a purpose-driven movement that continues to sweep the globe and change millions of lives for the better.

Mary, the executive team, and I have worked side-by-side with Gary and have had many discussions about his vision for the future of the company. We are completely committed to carrying on his legacy and mission of providing Young Living essential oils to every home in the world.

Mary will continue to serve as the CEO, and I will continue in my role of president and chief operating officer. In recent years, Gary and Mary have recruited and developed a world-class executive team. This talented group has diverse expertise across industries, from operations and manufacturing to research and marketing. This team has grown the business 800 percent over the last five years.

Our corporate staff is committed to “take action” as Gary always guided, and we invite you to join us in honoring his memory by striving every day to live by his philosophy:

“To truly accomplish our vision of taking the priceless benefits of our essential oils and oil-infused products to every home in the world, every possible effort is required. We seek ways to take positive, powerful action every day in every way. Ours is a proactive culture—never a reactive one.”

From a personal standpoint, I will miss Gary very much. He played an instrumental role in my life, helping me grow as a leader but more importantly as a man. Gary was from humble beginnings, and even as Young Living grew and experienced success, he never lost sight of his passion for helping others. Having the opportunity to work by his side for the last six years has taught me lessons about determination and the importance of relationships. I will honor our friendship by always asking myself, “What would Gary do?” to help me make important decisions. My family and I are indebted to Gary for bringing us into this amazing journey of sharing “the gift” of essential oils with millions of people.

Mary, Jacob, and Josef thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers. Mary will be sharing more information later this week.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the Young family has asked that donations be made to the nonprofit Gary started—The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation.
