I knew Mickey in Park Ave., Main Street and DHS. He was a great person, bright and a life long friend. When ever we saw each other old times and friendship were never forgotten.We served in different branches but fought in the same war. RIP Mickey.

To the Ross Family and friends,

I am saddened to hear of Mickey's passing. He was a kind, gentle man. As second cousins we played together as kids at many family gatherings and were competitors later in the Sunday Softball League. His welcoming smile will not be forgotten. May Mickey rest in peace and his family be comforted knowing he has reached his eternal reward.
