Mickey and I were Sigma Chi Brothers at Miami. He was a very talented and fun guy who always entertained us and made us laugh! When my wife of 50 years now and I got married, Mickey was there along with many other Brothers and friends. I've attached a couple of pictures, one is the Miami IBIS yearbook from 1971, and the other is one when Mickey came to dinner at our house in Sweetwater and fell in love with our young Irish Setter Kelly. Mickey, you left us too soon, and John, Dave, Pete, and I are pissed that you didn't ask us 1st.

I met Mickey through my sister Cherrene back in 2012. I loved his love of life and always smiling. We had a pool party at my sisters place in Venice that year and sitting at the table in the backyard his lighter blew up and scared the heck out of us. I will remember his smile, and his big heart. He’s at peace and flying with the angels now. Love you Mickey soar high my friend.

Mickey was a Sigma Chi brother at U of M & we were bandmates, along with John Arminio, another Sigma Chi alum - some at Miami - and a summer between sessions in a group called "Cisum," ("music spelled backwards). Years after graduation, my wife & I were at an Amway conference in MD & there was Mickey! we reconnected at that time & stayed in touch via Facebook for years after. Love you Bongo Mickey. In Hoc.

Dad, I'm going to miss our adventures. It was more then being shipped to Florida to visit the grandparents. It was dad showing up to come jump in the pool with us. To drive us back home with stops at Disney World and South of the Border, to grab a few things;)" along the way. Getting me on roller coasters I was too scared to ride. It was scary stories during sleep overs and inappropriate jokes as we got older. You gave us your extroverted personality, your strength, and your sense of humor that some would say was a hindrance at points but I never cared.:) I will miss you so much. Who am i going to race to Pinch Punch on the first of the month anymore or celebrate Pi day with? Talk about the newest or old Stephen King books with? Go to ocean City play pinball and eat Thrasher's fries with?Don't worry Joe volunteered to help with this one. :) Well a lot of discussion about all your nicknames these past few days. So glad I dont have to worry too much about that because, in the end, Im one of the few people who got to call you Dad. Bye-Cycle
