Michael Allan Young Obituary
June 26, 1943 - November 23, 2016 Michael A. Young, 73, passed away on November 23, 2016 at his home in Agoura Hills, surrounded by Diane, his wife of 51 years, and his daughters Alexandra and Amber. He came to be known as having nine lives due to his numerous illnesses over the past 16 years, though he was a fighter and lived to celebrate many milestones, most joyously his grandchildren, Diego and Vivian. Born and raised in Frogtown, Los Angeles, Mike first worked for his family's moving and storage company. He later was Ray Charles' pilot, an air traffic controller, a flight instructor, then owned Las Virgenes Van Lines. He loved to tell stories of those he had met. He traveled the world with his family and had a love for music, especially jazz standards. Mike had a gruff exterior and spoke his mind, though underneath it he was a loving family man and a loyal friend. Mike modeled a strong work ethic, spoke of education being key, and made jokes until the end. He taught his daughters to stand up for themselves and stand up for others. His legacy will live on through his children and grandchildren.
