  1. Paul was my training officer when I first started in Eastampton Police. He was very knowledgeable, tough when he needed to be, but overall, he cared about people, and was very warm and humorous! We also never wanted for a good meal when you were working with “Yungy”; That was usually a priority!
    He was a great police officer, patriot and veteran serving his country during the Vietnam war, but I think his greatest pride was his family. He spoke of them often and loved them deeply. Truly a great man. My condolences to the Yung family.
    God bless you.

  2. I met Paul after joining the Eastampton Police Department. I never had the pleasure of working with him. However the stories of Paul still echo through the Department. So on behalf of the entire Eastampton Township Police Department and Community. We all feel the loss.

    • Paul was one of a kind! Virginia and family, know he brought a lot of joy and happiness to so many, especially in the time he and I were at the police department! A police sergeant that could write a speeding ticket and hand the violator a complimentary calendar with his own name on it, cheesesteaks and a Tab soda from Russo’s, and his infamous, “Lenny, why you have to be so loud!?” at shift changes. “Yungy” all the best and thank you for your service and friendship! #RIP 3402

  3. George was my nieces Father. He was a very nice man when we would see him at David’s and Shirley house. He would tell us about his adventures of being in the Navy and being a police officer. We could have listened to him for hours. I am so sorry about passing.

  4. My deepest condolences to The Family. Mr Yung was a good man. Growing up on the Mt Holly end of Dawn Drive, whenever Mr Yung came down our end of the street while he was on patrol , if my handicap sister was sitting outside in the driveway in her wheelchair, he would always stop and sit on our wall and talk to her. He did that for years and that always stuck with me.

  5. I worked with Paul for 10 years at Inductotherm until he talked me into going to work for Eastampton Police Dept. I served with him for 25 years at the PD. I have great memories of some of our times together on the PD. He was a great guy and a good cop. RIP my freind

  6. Grandpa was an amazing storyteller. I enjoyed listening to him at Catie’s wedding and the few times I visited his home with Catie for family events. He always had a way with words that captured you. My deepest condolences for this loss. Heaven has reclaimed a beautiful soul. My love to the Chamberlain family.

    • Paul wss a good man lived to listen to his stories he told about his time in the service .I think he might of stpped me when he was a patrolman never recived a ticket just a warning.Paul was a good person .Rest in peace Sir!!
