I was very sorry to read about Mikes death. We have known Mike and the Young family over 50 years. Mike was always a happy person who loved animals. When I would visit NJ Shell he would always come over and greet me.

I’m so sorry to the family. Mike was always around at my grandparents (Jennie Reynolds) house when I was growing up. I remember when I was a kid he used to walk his pet ferrets through town. He always talked about how he couldn’t wait to retire. And loved my oldest son because I named him Harley and he used to sign to Mike which he loved. Man he was such a good dude. This breaks my heart. We love you Mike! Thanks for always being there for my grandma💞

I remember him coming into the bus station, with the bird on his shoulder. Always had a friendly smile.

i remember Mike riding the columbia bus going to marietta. several times he had a bird on his shoulder. he loved his birds. sometimes he would shop for groceries and have a big 2-wheeled cart chock full of goodies.he didnt waste any time getting on or off the bus, and he always had his fare ready! a great rider,  smiling alot while not bothering anyone. i was a Harley fan just as Mike was, so much that i noticed we had the same kind of Harley Davidson boots on. I only smiled. You go Mike….!! Wait! was that a Road King that i just heard? taking off like a eagle? Mike look for me. my 3-wheel Harley is ready. blaze a trail for me to follow…….your RRTA driver bob.
