William “Bill” John Mitchell

September 6, 1936December 28, 2020

Peacefully passed away on December 28, 2020 at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital. His children, Rick (Joy), Scott (Sarah), Lynne (Suzanne) and Mark (Denise), along with his loving wife Barbara ask family, friends and associates to celebrate his numerous accomplishments in life rather than mourn his passing. Bill won the first Dofasco scholarship to Queen’s University in 1955. He worked there for 6 years before moving to Nalco Burlington where he became Vice President of Marketing. He retired in 1994. At Bill’s request, no funeral will be held. Remembrances to Mission Services would be appreciated. His family was very important to him and he loved and cherished his 11 grandchildren.

Our sincerest condolences go out to the Mitchell Family. My brother Steve and I have the happiest childhood memories of the fun and close knit family that were the Mitchell's, who lived down the street from us on West 5th. You were always so kind as to share your pool, backyard, home and smiles with us. Truly, playing with Lynne, Scott and Mark (Rick being older) and being exposed to the laughter and fun of your family was contagious and has stayed with us to this day. We are so sorry for your loss but thank you for the blessing of being such a lovely and generous family. What a great legacy Bill has.
Michelle McCafferty and Steve Stokan
