I am sister to Mickey O'Malley (Ostaski) and it was a hoot to see him remembered. My name is Gloria (nee Ostaski) and I am a visual artist living in Albuquerque NM. Mickey's son, Michael Ostaski, is also a visual artist and lives in Tijeras NM. Mickey's daughter, Anner McGarvey, lives in New Jersey and also is an artist.
Our mother, Mae Ostaski, with whom I lived during the last 10 years of her life passed away in 2008 at the age of 107.
We all used to hang at the Magic Castle in the late 60s, early 70s and had lots of fun. Mickey used to be staff artist at GENII, the Conjuror's Magazine, and he did all this via typewriter and pasteup well before computers.
When Mickey died in June 1980, the Castle held a "wake" for him and that was a momentous event. I drank too much champagne, a fitting send off for my brother.
