Mitchel (Mickey) Berens 12/31/1929 – 10/7/2013 83, died October 7, 2013, peacefully, surrounded by loving family and at his home in Tucson, Arizona. Born on New Years Eve, 1929 to his parents Bessie and Edward, and older brother Irving he spent his childhood in Chicago and Whitehall, Illinois. Mickey graduated High School and briefly attended College. At an early age and with nothing but determination and intelligence, he started an automobile dealership business that in short time became four dealerships and allowed him the luxury of moving to Tucson in 1970. Mickey was blessed to meet the love of his life Audrey (Lewis) and they married January 23, 1955 after a brief courtship. While growing their business, they also grew their family and had four children, Eric (Ana Cecilia) of Tucson, Leesa Weisz (George) of Scottsdale, Robert (Nanci) of Tucson, and Steven (Charla) of Boulder, Colorado. Through their children the family blossomed to include 14 grandchildren; Bonnee, Aimee and Julee Morrison, Rebecca and David Berens, Arielle, Alec and Austen Berens, Lauren, Samuel, and Mitchel Berens as well as the recent addition of Diego, Mauricio and Arantza De La Torre. All loved Mickey's larger than life personality, including friends and family. His pursuits included passions for flying, golf, travel and, most of all, the dedication to his family. He was consistently there for family events and milestones. He always appreciated the people he encountered, never forgetting his humble beginnings and trying to make everyone he met feel special. Mickey is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, his brother and several very close friends. In lieu of flowers, his family would appreciate their thoughts, prayers and donations to either the Cardiac Rehab Center through the TMC Foundation (www.tmcaz.com/TMCFoundation) or the Arizona Heart Ball (http://tucsonheartball .org). A memorial service and celebration of his life will held at the Tucson Jewish Community Center at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 25, 2013.
