Yes I went to high school with him but I really got to know him from Mayflower Congegational Church in Sunday School. Along with Marty Baldes and Mark Avery we could get ourselves in a little trouble. I remember him being very funny. RIP Mickey.

He served his country and his community. A good example of Siouxland upbringing. You did good.
