Mickey was born in Ft.

Mickey was well-respected in the community and had many long-time friends.  Mickey’s greatest pride and joy was his family.  He was close to his sisters and their families, as well as his own. All the babies have always loved “Pop.”

Mickey’s family is sad to lose its patriarch but grateful he is no longer suffering.  He will be missed greatly by family, friends, and even some people who just knew him a little.

    Sorry for the family and community loss Mickey was a good man I worked for oak farms for probably 10 years as a mechanic. Mickey always had my back . He was a no nonsense person but knew an asset when he saw it. I will miss the morning coffee at papa bears.

    Judy and family, we were so sad to learn of Mickey’s passing. We have a lot of fond memories from our days at the golf course. Mickey was certainly well liked and respected. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

  19. I met Mickey when he was 11 years old and I was 14. I lived across the street from the Williams family. I loved them all so much. We both married in the same year and had our children almost at the same time. My family and his remained very close friends forever as well as our children. Mickey and Judy remained our close friends forever. There will never be another one like Mickey. My heart is so broken and it will be a long while before l can begin to heal and accept that he is gone. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around all of his family during this difficult time. My love, hugs and prayers are with all of you.

  20. So sorry to hear and sending prayers and condolences to the family. What a spirit we have all lost. I met Mickey during the Pure Milk days and worked with him through the years. Leader in the dairy industry and had the respect of his peers. He loved his family, his business and all the people around him. I think we could all tell great stories about Mickey but I will leave it with a wonderful person that looked out for all of us.

  21. Mrs Williams and family so sorry for your loss. Mickey was my coach at Northern little league for three years 67-69. He was a really good man .

  22. I just learned of Mickey’s passing today (Sept 15) and cant believe I wasn’t there to say goodbye to my long time friend of 45 yrs. Mickey and Judy were such great people and always had a welcome mat for any strays coming around like me! HA! So many good times with these two and their kids. Now they are all grown and have families of their own.
    Mickey was a great man who will live on thru his family to to keep family traditions alive. He will be missed but never forgotten. Such a great story teller! Rest in Peace Mickey and thank you for all the good times!
