  1. I didn’t see uncle Myles often but he was very kind to me and helped me with math homework during his vacation time and explained it better than my teachers. He will be very missed. I’m sorry he was sick 🙁

  3. I cannot tell you how sad I feel for the Myles Young family and his friends. I have not been able to get Myles out of my mind for many weeks now. He and I communicated the last time last Friday evening. Myles played an incredibly important role in my life. He was the friend that I needed when I most needed one. Myles was a uncomplicated man that loved his wife and family unconditionally. I will always admire Myles, the way he conducted his business and his life. I will miss him always. He made an impact and for that, he will be missed, deeply.

    Myles will be greatly missed by family and friends. He was a special friend to us and all who had the pleasure of knowing him. We met Myles and Cathy in Las Vegas at a SNCC Chevy Club Christmas Party and became instant friends. We spent several years enjoying our time together at the Gambler Car Show in Laughlin. While in Las Vegas where they parked their RV at the Oasis, we also enjoyed a lot of time together. Molly and Maddie have a real dog bond! We are grateful that we got to know and love Myles.
    Rest in Peace, our dear friend. Steve, Sheri and Molly

    Cathy,
    Although we only knew Myles for a short time, we instantly made a connection with y’all!! He was a kind, soft hearted soul with a great sense of humor and we loved spending time with the both of you. You complimented each other so well. We laughed at his many stories and antics he told us!! May he find peace and a pool to float in for his next journey. We loved you Myles!

    We would like to send out condolences to Cathy and family. We have known Myles for about 30 years as we both live in the same Court. Myles was a quiet individual but when we started having “safety mtgs” when I would be at the post office box and he would be working on his cars and later into RVs. He shared a few of his favorite family stories on the days he owned a boat for water skiing, etc . I would pick his brain on home heating etc. and he would pick my brain on auto mechanics especially on looking after his 5th Wheel trailer. He always seem to have some time to visit. He was a very independent worker and has undertaken may projects of redesigning his back yard. I found his views on things very interesting. We are so sorry that your life was take from us so soon. You will be at peace now.

    Dear Cathy and family:
    So sorry that Myles left us all so soon. I will always remember you both out for your evening stroll with Maddie and having a short catchup on things over the fence. Rob and I always enjoyed those times and will miss Myles always because he was such a happy man whenever and whatever he was doing he had time wave or chat.
