He was born October 14th 1930 at his parents’ home in Port Chester, NY, the son of the late William Nicholas Trepp and Margaret Caroline Murphy.  He was pre-deceased by his brother William Joseph, seven years his senior. Dr. Trepp graduated from St. Mary grammar school and Port Chester High School in 1948. He received his B.A. from the Catholic University of America in 1951 and his Dental degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1956. He then joined the U.S. Air Corps serving as a dentist at Langley Field in Hampton, VA.

In high school, college and in the service Mickey earned letters & awards in both basketball & baseball as a player and a coach. While at Catholic University in his final outing in baseball he pitched a no hitter and then a 2 hitter in the second game of a double header. After college he tried out for the Brooklyn Dodgers, but decided to go to dental school instead. After serving in the Air Force, he returned to Greenwich, CT and entered private practice with the late Drs.

While residing in Greenwich he continued in sports, bowling in the Fraternal league, playing softball in the Greenwich Recreation Senior league. His favorite pastimes were playing platform tennis in the winter and fishing on Long Island Sound aboard his “yacht”, Toothache. Due to numerous hip surgeries resulting from osteoarthritis, Mickey followed his doctor’s orders and retired in 1988, missing out on dentistry and his wonderful patients and friends. In 1989, the Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association recognized him for his “outstanding athletic accomplishments on and off the field” due to his many Town Championship successes in numerous sports.
