On October 22, 1955 he and Marie Castleman were joined in marriage. They would go on to spend nearly 60 years together as "Mick and Micky." Mick was a three-sport athlete in high school starring in football and baseball. Mick had a strong love for his family and was proud of his Irish heritage. He made numerous lifelong friends through his work and sporting activities. Mick retired from work upon his completion of the Byron Nuclear Power Station in 1990 where he was superintendent of the Auxiliary Building. Mick was able to enjoy a long retirement spending time with family and friends. He liked to golf and bowl and had two 300 games when he was in his 60's.
