I didn't know Mr. Gorman but I loved how a drumstick was planted next to his flag at Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg's In America: Remember COVID installation at the Washington Monument. That was very unique! When we pulled up the flags during the deinstall, I made sure that the drumstick was reunited with the flag.

A force of life! That was Mickey He was a charming, gregarious, thoughtful, gentle and generous soul. His sense of humor and his personality itself was infectious. On first meeting Mickey 35+ years ago we just clicked! Is it any wonder why? Always a smile on his face, Mickey met you with a warm and welcoming embrace. Many owe a debt to Mickey for the success he helped each of us to achieve. Empowering us to strive for more. Enriching our lives with his friendship. Touching our hearts with his love. Whether good times or bad, I could always count on Mickey. We toasted successes and drowned a few sorrows, but kept moving forward. I’ll always cherish the many nights spent rockin out with the Blue Dog Band. They still had it going on. Cheers! Yes, Mickey was a force of life…and my life was changed by knowing him. And by that, he will continue to live on. Bye Bye Bye-cycle Love & Laughs forever -Marie

Our father was an amazing man. I am so blessed to have had him to guide me and push me. He taught me to be a great person. Not trying to sound self centered in saying that, but for those who knew him, you will understand. Our father was a man who tried to help everyone around him succeed. He always told me, if you help others, and put good into the world, it comes back. It is amazing to see how many people he helped just in the posts I saw online. My father believed in people … he believed that everyone can succeed. He believed in me, and I became “his lawyer.” My father was an amazing man, a “CANE”, a true friend, of me and many others, who I hope to have the pleasure of meeting. I hope that everyone can make it to his celebrations, but, I understand that these are tough times in which we live in. Please know that he loved every one of his family, brothers (Sigma Chi) and friends. I heard it so much throughout my life. H

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
