Rev. Michael Kenneth Bynum, Sr., age 87, of Uniontown, PA, went home to be with the Lord on April 21, 2022, at the Uniontown Hospital. He was born in Fitz Henry, PA on January 24, 1935, to the late Edward Bynum and the late Grayce B. Straughter Bynum.
Rev. Bynum lived most of his childhood life in Fitz Henry, PA, and later Edenborn, PA. He graduated from German Township High School. He was known to his family as Uncle Mike or Uncle James. He was funny, stubborn, and he loved to drive his Cadillacs. Uncle Mike was prompt and if he told you he was going to be at your house at 10:25 AM, best believe he would be there promptly at 10:25 AM, be blowing his horn. He was also known for saying “Don't take any wooden nickels”.
He was known across the region of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania through Philadelphia Pennsylvania as a man of God, spreading the gospel through word and through song. He was a lover of music and song and he loved to sing. Rev. Bynum worked as a police officer, and he served in the U.S. Marine Corp. He also worked, for a short while, as a broadcast announcer with Dorothy Boone. He sang on the radio program and gave a special congratulations to military men and women.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings: Phillip Andrew Bynum, John Anthony Bynum, Edward Emmitt Bynum, Jeremiah Bynum, Sr., Diane Esther Bynum, and Eleanor Grace Ramsey.
He is survived by his children: Gina Bynum, Tina Bynum, Michael Kenneth Bynum, Jr., and Michelle Bynum; siblings: Virginia King, Bernadette Price, Carol Craggette, Priscilla Russell, Kathleen Holland, and Marilyn Ings and Mark Bynum, Sr.; great-grandchildren; grandchildren; nieces and nephews, other relatives, and friends.
