Mickey ... a good friend and shipmate. We both started going to sea as teenagers. Had many experiences. Amazing he survived where others did not. Then, only to be taken down by COVID-19. We kept in touch with each other right up until he got sick this year.
Mickey experienced living in two worlds - the world of 50 years ago, and the world of today. Mickey liked reading what others wrote - but he himself could've filled volumes of intriguing, exotic, adventures filled with danger, humor, and mystery. Sailing on the China coast during the Vietnam war. The Middle East, South America, the Caribbean.
Mickey was a bosun. He knew ships. All different classes, types, and sizes. He knew how to keep a cool head in a storm - a bad weather storm, or a bad storm among an angry crew.
Mickey's gone but memories linger on.
