When Mickey was young and in school, he loved to play baseball; he loved the outdoors, especially the mountains. Mickey enjoyed his life doing things he loved to do; some of his favorites were fishing, he loved flowers and loved to play pool. His family described Mickey as a rebel, a joker and funny. To quote one, "he was a hell raising, beer drinking, joke telling, back wood camping, kick your butt, roughneck Rebel without a cause." He will surely be missed by all who knew and loved him.
