Mitchell was a perfectionist and that was reflected in his excavating business. Many people commented on and paused to watch his skill at making the heavy equipment do the intended work with ease. In years past, Mitchell enjoyed traveling with his parents to different locations to help build Kingdom Halls. Mitch was known as the “candyman” to some. He loved to eat it and got joy from sharing it with others, especially the kids.
Graveside services will be held on October 21, 2021 at Furnace Mountain Cemetery at 1 pm for family and friends.
