Mitch and my brother Steve Zeigler were good friends and I met Mitch several years ago. He always had a very mild and respectable manner about him which I never forgot. He made me feel like he was my friend also. I live not far from where Mitch lived, if I saw him out as I drove by I would either honk and wave or occasionally stop and chat with him. He would occasionally stop by work to deliver material where I currently work and when I saw him I would always seek him out to converse with him. He always took time to talk and visit and share memories with me about my brother and some of the great times they shard together.
I am very sorry to hear about his passing. I wanted to convey my condolences and let his family know that I will never forget him and how he touched people that knew him.
If Joy had not posted his passing, I would still be watching for him as I passed his home! He will be missed and I wish all of you the best in the future!

We were very sorry to hear about Mitch’s passing and your loss. We got to know Mitch through the old engine shows and came to think a lot of him. In February he came to our show in Dupont and brought a trailer full of engines to show. We will really miss him. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
