Dr. Les Michael Young, 62, was born in Houston, TX on November 11, 1960. He passed from this earth to his heavenly home on December 30, 2022.
Michael attended Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena, TX, studied pre-med at San Jacinto College and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College in 1989. Michael began dating Molly B. Jackson 42 years ago on June 28, 1980. He married the love of his life and best friend on January 22, 1987.
His chiropractic career led Michael and Molly all over Texas, including Georgetown, Midland, Spring, The Woodlands and finally back to Houston.
Michael loved helping and healing people through chiropractic care which he believed was a gift from God. Many of his patients became dear friends and were considered family. Michael had a passion for health and fitness. This included over 30 years of weight training and working out. He also enjoyed sports, bird watching, fishing and traveling, but his greatest joy was his daily walks with Bella, his beloved dog. He was a die-hard fan of the Houston Oilers and continued to support them when they moved to Tennessee and became the Tennessee Titans.
All who knew Michael, know he loved the Lord, his family, friends and patients. He was a true prayer warrior.
He was preceded in death by his father, Clarence “Les” Young, stepfather, Oscar “Junior” Gilbert, father and mother in-law, Neal and Beverly Jackson and sister in-law, Dodie Jackson. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Molly, mother, Evelyn Gilbert, brother, David Young and his wife Janet, nephews, Michael and Zachary Young, and sister in-law, Lee Ann Jackson. He is also survived by his sisters, Kristen Patrick and Janeen Young, as well as his aunt, Nancy Cocek, cousins, Debra Levandowski, Raye Lynn Cocek and Cheryl Cocek Cepeda.
