Mickey Kabran, age 68, of Merritt Island, passed away at his home on Sunday, February 9, 2014. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he moved to Merritt Island in 1972 where he lived the rest of his life.
Mickey was married to his devoted wife, Joan Kabran for over 50 years.
Mickey was the father of four children; Richie, Michael, John, and Traci, grandfather of two, Richie and Christina. Mickey was a loving father, husband, grandfather and friend to all.
He served in the U.S. Air Force as a Sargeant from 1962 to 1966.
Owner of Kabran Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc. in Cocoa Beach, for over 30 years. He enjoyed spending time with his wife and family. Mickey loved working with his hands and was extremely talented with his mechanical abilities and common sense approach to all of life's challenges. He loved coming to work every day and working on his business. He loved learning, teaching others, and sharing his knowledge with the community. His passion for hard work and commitment is reflected on all of his accomplishments.
Mickey enjoyed the simple things in life; an every Saturday night trip to the local movie theater with his wife; keeping up with all of the hot topics in the news and following their favorite sitcoms and enjoying his wife's homemade cooking as well as spending time with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed an occasional cruise on his motorcycle, googling the internet for all of the best deals for anything and everything and just living every minute of his life to the fullest.
He was generous to his family and gave of himself to so many over the years, far too numerous to count. He was loved by many, he left an impact on many lives, and he will not soon be forgotten.
Calling hours will be at 12:30 to 1:00 pm, on Feb. 15, followed by a memorial service at Brevard Memorial Funeral Home, 5475 N. Highway US-1 Cocoa, FL.
