    My thoughts are with your family. I had the honor of working with Mike for several years. I’m a Michigan fan, and we always pecked at each other during football season in good fun. Mike displayed wonderful character and got a long with everyone. Mike helped me build a resume, and helped me establish my career by always pushing me to succeed and strive for what I wanted. If it were not for Mike I wouldn’t be the person I am today for which I am truly grateful. He was such a wonderful person and will be missed. God bless you guys in this time of grievance.

    • Mike (Jr) I had the opportunity to know Mike Dickerson as he was my Boss first and then a friend before more importantly he became my brother from another mother. We often talk about everything from sports, work, family. We depend on each other in the last couple of years. You are gone but never would I forget about you bro. Your passion about life would stay with me forever. Love you man. TTYL. Go Steelers.

    I was one of Mikey’s coaches at Grove City. What a wonderful spirit taken from his family and friends to soon. A sweet smile, Michael as I called him was as sweet a person as that smile. It’s been years since I have talked with him. Our last conversation was at a Olentangy Orange V Marion Franklin football game. I was surprised he recognized me since it had been a significant time since I had seen him. It was like we never missed a beat. A great linebacker and fullback for the GC DAWGS. His dedication and team commitment as a youth revealed the success he would have in his adult life. Rest In Peace Michael, my life was enriched by having the opportunity to coach you. My condolences to family and friends.

  14. To Michael’s family and Lisa:
    I am so sorry to hear of Michael’s untimely passing. I remember meeting Michael at event you too were attending together. You too walked in matching and dressed to the nines. Sitting at the table he spoke so proudly of you. I know its hard but remember the good times during this pain bit remember “Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.”

  15. I’m in shock, still. My heart is broken in two. We go back a long way. You were a perfect gentleman, amongst other things. I will think of you fondly until we meet again. Prayers for strength and comfort to your family.

    To the Family and Friends of Mike D:
    I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to you on the untimely passing of Mike. I had the privilege of working with Mike during my time at Kraft Foods and he was a softie trying to be hard. As his HR Leader, I appreciated the care he had for his team and he always tried to do the right thing.

    May you be comforted by fond memories of Mike and may God grant you peace as you mourn your loss but celebrate his life.

    Mikey was one of the kindest people in high school. Friends with everyone. Rest In Peace.

  20. Kelly Howell and family

    Dickerson and Boozer Families we are sending our deepest condolences and praying for your strength at this time. Mikey will be missed. Love you all.

  21. Mike, Derrick and myself all met some 30 years ago in 1991. Mike became more like a brother to Derrick than a best friend. They have been together through all different kinds of situations and always stayed close. Mike was “uncle Mikey “ to our children and never missed a cook out or a fight / football party at our house, as he was a sweet guy who loved to eat, laugh and argue with Derrick about their sport rivalry between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh . He will be sorely missed by our family. My sincere condolences and prayers go out to his friends and family. We love you Mikey always ❤️ Jami Sutton
