This week, the Atlanta City Council held a ceremony to honor the late Ivory Lee Young Jr., who died last week at the age of 56 after a battle with cancer.  

 

In the council chambers on Monday, Young’s seat was draped in black with the straw hat he used to wear sitting on the desk.

 

He served four terms as a councilman for West Atlanta, starting in 2002.
