Michael “Mickey” O’Sick, 73, passed away on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at the Glens Falls Hospital, surrounded by his loving wife and family after a long illness.
Born June 12, 1945, in Binghamton, NY, he was the son of the late Louis O’Sick and Marjorie (VanLoan) O’Sick Frawley.
Mick graduated from Fort Edward High School in 1964. In his senior year, he was a stellar track star, running the 880 yards and relay sprints. He was also a mentor to the younger athletes.
Mick was employed by the NYS Department of Corrections for many years, working at Great Meadow, and eventually retiring from Mount McGregor.
Mick loved life and people. He gave everyone nicknames and had a contagious laugh that drew you to him. In his younger years, he enjoyed deer hunting, riding motorcycles and snowmobiles. As he grew older he became an avid golfer. He especially loved playing with his friends, wife and his boys (the Big Os). He loved going to his winter home in Naples where he developed great friendships. He will be greatly missed by his wife, children, family, and many friends. Soar high, you have earned it my love.
