Is there any danger with a 91 y/o with ICD defib using a 2 way radio “walkie talkie?” I’m just concerned because I’m not sure if the radio waves could harm the ICD at all.

There have been no reported problems with radios and ICD’s. However, to be safe would use the walkie talkie on the side opposite the implanted device. The same is true for cell phones.
