Mickey was born and raised in Pittsfield. After graduating from PHS in 1945, where he was a star football player, he joined the Navy. He served during World War II and the Korean War from 1945 - 1952. Upon returning from duty, he married his bride. They just celebrated 59 years together April 26, 2012. Mickey was a dedicated ironworker who loved his job. He made many strong friendships throughout his life and was known as a man made of steel. His retirement years were spent helping support and build local businesses in Hermosa and Manhattan Beach, Calif., with his sons. Sharks Cove Hermosa was Mickey's favorite 4 o'clock hotspot.
He touched the lives of all who knew him. To know him was to love him. A very caring and generous man, Mickey will be forever missed and will always remain in our hearts.
