Community leaders praise ‘Mickey’
“Mickey was the kind of guy who had a way of speaking to you that made you feel like you’d known him for years — he would put you at ease that way, and (he) really had a way about him that after talking to him for just a few minutes, you felt like he was an old friend,” said Judge Jack Mayberry.
“Initially, I met Mickey back in the early ‘70’s, when I was (then) a practicing attorney and he was on the police department,” he said. “Our respective positions and our mutual interest in the law caused our paths to cross often — we had some great adventures together.
“Right now, there’s no way to accept this loss — it’s very hard,” he said.
