He attended Calvary Baptist Tabernacle and retired as a Regional Manager from Delmarva Power in 1988 after 40 years. “Mickey” was an avid golfer, BUT, never got a hole-in-one; even so his love of golf prompted him and his wife to move to Pinehurst, NC for several years.

Dietz & her husband, Frank DeLizza of Salisbury; a son, Steven Brewer & his wife, Tamara of Delmar, MD; two grandsons, Michael DeLizza & his wife, Theresa of Mardela Springs and Dr. Joshua Brewer & his wife, Sarah of Delmar, MD; four great grandchildren, Adam, Luke, Isaac, and Benjamin; and several nieces, nephews, cousins & extended family.
