Dear Mary & Family,
We are so saddened to hear of Mitch's passing. I always enjoyed spending time and laughter with Mitch either at DI School meetings and at Ameritas Sales Conferences. I will miss sharing a cocktail with him and listening to his jokes.
Please know that you're in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Mitch.

Mitch was one of the early group of DI center managers along with his wife Mary. His success helped to propel the DI line for Union Central and then Ameritas over the years!! Most recently Mitch represented DI on the full FAC and as chair of the DI task force. His big heart, smile and personality will be missed by all members of the Ameritas DI Family! Please keep his wife Mary and son JC, co-manager of the Atlanta DI Center in your thoughts and prayers in the days to come!

Uncle Mitch ,you lovingly took on the challenge of helping to raise me. You never faltered. You were such a blessing. A wonderful father figuire. Your smile, your laugh and your hugs made the world a better place. You always kept us safe and always worked so hard to make life the very best! The adventures we had! I have so many memories. The Datsun, the snake in Bethel, the pick ups from the babysitters and all the singing, dinner with the family every night after work, Mutual of Omahas' Wild Kingdom, a cold beverage watching sports and HSN!!!
You gave so much and were always so strong and so proud. I know you were the biggest gentleman with the biggest heart. Thank you for taking care of mom. For taking care of us all. For loving Aunt Mary so much and Chad and JC and all of theirs. My heart is with you all and I pray you always know his love.
I have loved you always and will forever. I love you.Until we meet again. ❤

When I think of Mitch, I'm reminded of the morning in his garage in Georgia when he told me his testimony and explained The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I will always be grateful for his courage and honesty.
Mary, JC, Karissa, Cody, Carter and Jack my heart breaks for your tremendous loss. You were all robbed.
I pray Jesus fills your hearts and minds with His supernatural Peace.
My deepest condolences.
