Mickey M. Young

January 17, 1946November 14, 2012

Mickey M. Young, 66, of Homosassa, passed away on Nov. 14, 2012 at his home. A native of Clearwater, he was born Jan. 17, 1946 to Victor and Dorothy (Carr) Young. Mickey wore many hats during his lifetime, though it was not long enough. His life was cut way too short. He did commercial fishing with his father for a number of years and also helped him in his licensed painting business. He even helped him paint the Belleview Biltmore in Clearwater. He was also a ditch digger, concrete block layer, construction worker, bookkeeper, commercial fisherman and crabber. He and his wife of 36 years also owned a retail mom and pop grocery/deli store called Combo Carry Out in Ozona, FL. He also owned his own shrimp boat for a number of years and had a retail bait and tackle store and wholesale supplies for bait stores from Ruskin to Steinahatchee, FL. He did not want to depend on Mother Nature for his living anymore, so he and his wife Melody decided to drive an 18-wheel truck for a living that lasted for 10 years. They drove as a team for Werner Trucking. When Mickey could no longer drive a truck due to his health, he retired and worked around their home in Homosassa, FL. He took care of the house, did the shopping, cleaning and all the cooking so his wife could go to school to become an RN. She now works for Hospice of Citrus County in Homosassa, FL. Mickey leaves behind his wife Melody; two daughters Vicki Moore and husband Gary of St. Petersburg, FL; Carri McIver and husband Mikey and their two children Connor and Hannah, of Keller, TX and many cousins from Citrus County including Ed, Evelyn and Ruth Ann Brannen of Dunnellon, FL; Tex (Ruben) Beales of Dunnellon, FL and many, many others. His family was his life and he will be greatly missed by all. Funeral Service of Remembrance will be held on Tues., Nov. 20th at 10:30 AM at Wilder Funeral Home, Homosassa with Chaplain Jonathan Beard of Hospice of Citrus County officiating. Interment will follow at Sylvan Abbey Memorial Park in Clearwater at 3:00 P.M. Friends will be received on Mon., Nov. 19th from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. at Wilder Funeral Home, Homosassa. In lieu of flowers, please send a contribution to a charity of your choice or to Hospice of Citrus County, 8471 W. Periwinkle, Homosassa, FL 34446
