Mickey was a graduate of South Boston High, class of 1961 and served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was employed with Allen Bradley Products, as plant manager, for 35 years before retiring in 2007.
Mickey was an avid New England sports fan. He enjoyed spending winters with his wife Linda, in Florida, and attending Red Sox spring training.
