Mitchell Frederick Stow
July 7, 1992 – May 25, 2020
Mitchell Frederick Stow, 27, of Little Elm, TX went to be with his Lord and Savior on May 25, 2020, after a courageous months-long battle with multiple medical issues.
Mitchell was born in Plano, Texas, and graduated from Plano West Senior High School. Mitchell was known by all as an “old soul”, as may of his friends were much his senior in age. He was baptized at Custer Road United Methodist Church, and was an active member of that church and community for many years, and heavily involved in the youth programs. Later, he joined Christ United UMC, and was equally active there as well. Early on, Mitchell was involved in a variety of youth sports like soccer, tennis, hockey, golf. He was an early member of the Gleneagles US Junior Team Golf program and was also involved in Y Guides. After his initial medical issues at Children’s Hospital in Dallas, in the early 2000s, Mitchell has been a longtime weekly volunteer at Children’s Medical Center, logging nearly 1,000 hours of volunteer work over the years in the playroom, formerly known as “Aikman’s Endzone”. Anyone who knew Mitch also probably has one of his signature custom pens. He made and sold literally thousands of his pens, both at various retail locations around town, as well as via Facebook and to direct to friends. His proceeds always went to the National Brain Tumor Association. Mitch has been described by all as kind, gentle, generous, giving, passionate, and determined. His passion for God, life, and all people made him popular with young and old alike. Mitchell was survived by his mother, Susan A Stow, father Ralph P. Stow, siblings Ellen (Dane) Stow Conley and James “Jack” H Stow, Grandfather Frederick Stow, Sr., Uncles and Aunts including Jay and Susan Armistead, Fred Stow, Jr., Meg (Rich) Crowley Delgado; and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces, including Wyatt and Grace Conley, Harrison (Krista) Stow, Christina Stow, and Megan Crowley. Mitchell was preceded in death by his grandparents Sam and Carolyn Armistead, and Margaret “Kent” Stow.

I met Mitch in the early 2,000s and he was one of the nicest young men I have ever met. He was loving, athletic, giving and simply put a great kid. I had the privilege of fishing, playing golf and simply spending some time with him.
After Mitch encountered some very severe medical issues his life changed forever. This did not stop Mitch from dealing with his problems.
He fought a good fight and continued to care about other people, give to charities and love God.
God bless Mitch and his loving parents Ralph and Susan who have endured more than any family should have to live with.
RIP Mitch for you have gone to a better place and are loved by so many.
