Mickey was born on February 11th, 1940 to Michael and Alberta Kolonics in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  He was the older brother to the late Diann Albert. He graduated from St. Peter’s High School in 1958. During High school Mickey was being recruited by the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team until an unfortunate leg injury ended his early baseball career.  After high school, Mickey began working at S&H Green Stamps.



 Mickey met his wife Dora in 1963 while “cruzin’ the Avenue”, it was love at first sight. They were married on September 26, 1964. Mickey and Dora raised three children, Michael, Kelly and Kristina. The family moved to California in 1971 where Mickey began work for Gilmore Envelopes and retired after 20 years of service.


1974 brought La Habra Pop Warner Football into the family. Mickey began coaching in 1976, a pastime that spanned over 30 years. His love for football was shared with many families and multiple generations as several players came back through the years to join his coaching staff. In addition to football, Mickey enjoyed golfing and in 1981 he sank a hole-in-one on the 9th hole at the Diamond Bar Country Club, a feat he was extremely proud of.



Mickey and Dora enjoyed traveling in their retirement years. Some of his favorite trips include Kauai, Branson, Mount Rushmore, and San Antonio.



Mickey is survived by his wife Dora, children Mike (Alanna), Kelly, Kristina, and grandchildren, BK, Michael, Nathaniel, and David.
