Obituary: Michael P. Young – March 5, 1967 – Nov. 1, 2021

Mike Young left this earth way too soon. He was born in Santa Fe, NM but grew up in Los Alamos where he graduated in 1985. Mike attended college in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he met his wife, Diane. He worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Financial Systems Analyst.  

Mike was a son, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and friend. He will be remembered as a fun, caring, loving, devoted, adventurous, and passionate man. He loved running-even with the bears, skiing, riding his motorcycle, photography, dancing with his beloved wife, and spending time with family-being the fun, silly, outgoing man.

Mike is preceded in death by his father Phillip Young. Mike is survived by his wife Diane, children Estrella (Jared), Michael (Alicia), Victoria (Trae), grandsons Aidan and Kellen, mother Kay, siblings Katie and Patty, and many cherished relatives and friends.  

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,

Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at Guaje Pines Cemetery in Los Alamos, followed by a reception at 1923 Mendius Lane in Los Alamos.
