    I’ve known Mick for nearly all of my life, and he was such a wonderful, upbeat, friendly person, as was his wife of 57 years, Ruth. I was fortunate to have seen him just a week or two ago after many years, and he was just as happy and friendly as ever. Our condolences to Bruce, Joan, Ron, and Jean and all of Mick’s family. He will be missed.
