A Roanoke native, Micah was born in Jacksonville on May 22, 1994, the son of Derek and Becky Young Farr. He had an associate's degree in nursing and a bachelor's degree in history, theology and education and taught history and psychology for Opelika City Schools. Micah had a thirst for knowledge, was a trivia buff, loved picking his guitar, and enjoyed history and reenacting it. He was a PA announcer for Handley Tiger Football and an avid Alabama fan and always wore his lucky jersey every Saturday. More than anything, Micah was a Christian who loved serving the Lord. He was a member of Heritage Baptist Church, where he served as assistant pastor. He also hosted a podcast named "Patriotic Preachers."
Survivors include his parents, Derek and Becky Young Farr of Roanoke; two sisters, Katie Farr and Annsley Farr, both of Roanoke; brother, Xavier Watkins of Roanoke; maternal grandmother, Joan Young of Roanoke; aunts and uncles, Brooke Young, Brock Young, Dajuana Cohran, Delaina Burns, Danissa Kirk, Dennis Farr, David Farr, Daryle Farr and Dwayne Farr. Micah was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Tommy Gene Young, and paternal grandparents, William Lindsey and Martha Neal Farr.
Pallbearers will be Xavier Watkins, Chris Cohran, Caleb Kirk, Jonathan Head, Bryant Mapp and Coty Yarbrough. Honorary pallbearers will be Micah's cousins.
