At a very young age, his family moved to New York City, where he spent his childhood with his sister, Diana Marrero.  Mickey met his wife, Mercedes, and lived most of his adult life in New York City and Old Bridge New Jersey.

He later married Lucy Segarra and they lived in Old Bridge, New Jersey and Wesley Chapel, Florida.

He had 3 children and 2 stepchildren: Arlene Colon Baccinelli (husband Stefano), Debbie Colon Boyce (husband Keith) and Michael Colon, Jr (wife Sharon), Martha Thomas (husband Derek) and Jeannie Espinosa. He has 9 grandchildren, Joseph Eftekhari, Lisa Eftekhari, Nina Baccinelli, Maggy Baccinelli, Valerie Boucher, Andres Thomas, Miles Thomas, Kayla Thomas, and Lillian Marrero.  He has 4 great-grandchildren Annabelle, Ruby, Isabella, and Cameron.

He worked for U.S. Customs as a Customs Inspector. A job he was very proud of. His hobbies included music, salsa dancing, playing bongos and congas.  He also loved sports.  His favorite teams were the New York Giants, the New York Yankees, the New York Knicks, and the New York Rangers.  He was a big fan of electronics, especially watching TV and listening to his stereo system.
