Mitch Deighan lost his partner, Mike Anderson on Saturday, May 24th, 2008. They were together for 30 years
Mitch showed me Northern Liberties, a section of Philadelphia no far from Independence Hall, some years back and I marveled at the transformation of an area that I remembered from childhood as an all-but-lost slums. That brick wall was made by Mike and Mitch Deighan. The doorway was patterned after one of the portals on Independence Hall, a few blocks south.
I know that Mike had to have had a lot to say with Mitch for them to have been so committed to being part of the diligent re-colonizers that have revitalized the area over the decades.
