Honoring Steve Mickle
An emotional and well attended memorial service for the life and memory of one of Groton's own - Steve Mickle - was held Saturday at the Performing Arts Center followed by a reception at the Groton Country Club.
Steve was a retired member of Groton's on-call Fire Department and a retired employee of the Groton Highway Department. He was an active member of the Massachusetts Chapter of the Red Knights motorcycle club - the International Firefighters Motorcycle club.
Steven, age 63, died in a traffic accident in Berwick, Maine riding his 2004 Harley Davidson, having ridden the same bright-red Harley in the annual Groton Firefighters Muster parade shortly before the accident. His fellow 'Knights' came out in force to honor their 'brother'. Photo by Robert Mingolelli
