Following his military career, Mick was associated with Borg-Warner as an area manager for Wells Fargo armored cars.

In his spare time, he loved going fishing, watching the horse races at Mountaineer, cheering for the Steelers with his son, Donald, and spending time with his family especially his grandchildren and his dogs, Chelsea, Jazmine and Kozee.

Surviving him at home is his wife, Julia “Judy” Maxwell Bartlett, whom he married on Nov. 5, 1998.

He also leaves behind a daughter, Tisha Frye of Virginia; a son, Donald Bartlett and his companion, Amber Pfalzgraf, of Locust Grove, Va.; and a step-daughter, Melissa Lewis of East Liverpool.
