Born on October 10, 1939, in Deer Lodge, Montana, he left for the Big Logging Show in the Sky on June 28, 2009.
Mickey moved from Montana to Vanderhoof in the early Fifties with his family. He worked hard all of his life, largely focused on ranching with his parents, and later in forestry where he worked in the logging industries of both the Interior and Coast. Mickey spent some time in the roofing industry, owning a company based out of Sointula that produced shakes and shingles. Later, job opportunities would take him North to Alaska. Mickey lived out the last years of his life in the community of Craig, Alaska.
His personal interests were simple. He was a devoted family man, and had an undying love for the outdoors. Mickey was a loving husband, father, brother, and friend to many. His sense of humour and kind heartedness will be forever missed.
Dad, in the words of Buzz Martin: you have finally gone to a place with no road inspectors, a place with no snow to hook chokers in, and a place where you’ll never get your tail hold ‘too high on the stump’.
