Obituary of Troy Bradley Young

Troy Bradley Young of Westland, Michigan passed away from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) on March 7, 2024 at the young age of 50 years.


Troy was born on July 16, 1973 in Lansing, Michigan to Thomas Young (Judi Young) and Nancy Mitchell (Kenneth Mitchell).  Loving husband to Tracy (Richards) and Father to Emily.  Loving brother to Todd, Tracie (Robert), Amanda (Chris), Tiffany (Jonathan), Amber, Britteny (Kirk).  Loving son in law to Gary (Gail) & Shannon (Major).  Loving brother in law to Tamera (Ray), Major Jr. (Nicole), Gary Jr., Bryan (Lindsay) & Melissa (Dan).  Loving uncle to Megan, Alyssa, Kyla (Christian), Lorie (Andy), Mychaela, Brendan, Quinn, Breanna, Levi, Dawson, Aidan, Emmitt, Kennedy Charlotte, Evelyn, Evelynn Marie, Kennedy Ryann, Ellie & Riley.


Troy never liked sitting still.  He kept busy from the time he woke up to the time he would go to bed.  He loved working with his hands, whether it was doing a renovation job for a customer or working on a car in his garage.  There was nothing Troy couldn’t do or fix.  He would always say “I can make that”.  


He was an amazing Dad to our daughter and was involved in everything she did. He loved helping her with school projects, driving her to activities or friends houses, taking trips up North, or just listening when she was having a bad day or needed advice.


He most especially loved being a dance Dad.  He did everything from building props, helping with makeup, pulling the prop trailer, to being all of the dancers biggest cheerleader.  He never missed a competition, even after he was sick he would watch virtually and be glued to the TV for every minute of it - he didn’t want to miss any of the girls dances.  He truly loved our dance family.


He loved spending time with his family & friends and would do just about anything for the people he loved.


Troy will forever be in our hearts.
