Father Mick was a true "Father" and friend to hundreds and hundreds of Athenaeum seminarians, myself included (1966-1970).
We loved trying to do our best in choir, even when we could not sing or chant all that well. We all came away with a lifelong appreciation of Gregorian Chant.
- I still sing "Sacerdos et Pontifex" -- that he composed for the papal nuncio's visit in 1968 -- to my grandchildren.
For those of us who chose not to go on to ordination, he was the "go to guy" for our wedding ceremonies. He was the celebrant for many an ex-seminarian's wedding. And he kept up a correspondence with many of us after seminary, pounding out messages on his typewriter.
And who can forget living in the 40-man dormitories at St. Greg's where he served as principal and dormitory prefect. We would see that bald pate coming under the red exit light during a pillow fight or other mischief, and dive back into bed "pretending" to be asleep. It didn't work...he knew instinctively who the ringleaders were and came right to their beds with his flashlight. "Leroy, what was going on just now?" And we COULD NOT LIE TO HIM!! We would spill our guts and fess up just like little kids. And he would never yell or get angry...just tell us he was disappointed (and we'd feel TERRIBLE because we let LJM down) and assign us a week of duty cleaning the "Jakes."
A man's man, priest's priest, and just a beautiful human being. He left his mark on us all and will NEVER be forgotten.

I was a student for the Youngstown Diocese at St. Gregory''s from 1955 to 1961. Fr. Mick was the teacher who introduced me to Gregorian and classical music. I became one.of the cantors in the liturgy and this has continued to be a ministry now into my senior years. He was a wonderful counselor, saintly priest, and a principal loved by all the students. He was always approachable and a confidant for many..the archdiocese of.Cincinnati was blesses by his service to the Church these many years. May he rest in.peace. Tim Mohr

I would like to extend my sympathy to Fr. Mick's family, friends and parishioners. Fr. Mick was on the faculty of St Gregory Seminary during my student days there. He fostered in me an appreciation of classical music, opera Gregorian chant and liturgy. He took care of me when I fracture my collar bone playing basketball. He and Fr Mac (Norbert McCarthy) took several of us to Pittsburgh to visit a fellow seminarian who had taken ill during the school year. I felt honored when he included several of us in a seminary choir to sing at St Peter in Chains after the renovation there. He was a great priestly role model for all of us.
