Kenrick (Ken) Mistrot of Valley View, TX passed away on July 8, 2019, at the age of 67. He was born August 14, 1951, in Donalsonville, GA to parents Wilfred & Syble Mistrot (Turner), and was raised in Florida. He is loved and missed by his children Cole Mistrot and Marilyn Cravens (Mistrot), son-in-law Adam Cravens, grandchildren Kinley and Cason Cravens, sisters Cathy Mistrot Pool and Lisa Mistrot. Ken was preceded in death by his parents, brother Randy Mistrot, and sister Silvia Money (Mistrot).

His proudest role was being a father and grandfather. He loved his family fiercely and enjoyed spending time with them every chance he had. Those who know and love Ken would describe him as a hard worker, great storyteller, and loyal to those he cared for. The countless friends he’s made over the last 44 years owning his paint & body shop in Irving, TX will miss “Hollywood” and stopping by for a chat. Ken served our country as a member of the United States Army and had the honor of serving as a Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Ken was our friend and neighbor at Watson’s Automotive and then DFW Auto Center from the 1970’s . The many years that I knew him, I can’t recall a single customer having a complaint about his work. Heaven must of needed a good body man. Save us a spot Hollywood!

I haven't seen Ken for many years but I will never forget that constant dimpled smile and that having fun was just part of his DNA! I will never forget him and am so thankful for his service to our country. I know he is entertaining all of those that have come before him! May God bring peace and comfort to all of your friends and family.
Save me a place Hollywood!

Kenrick was like an uncle to me because I have known him since I was a little girl. I was always excited if I found out Hollywood was coming over. I remember when he would come to our house in Irving and he and my dad would play darts. They had shops next to each other and shared a love of cooking and car craft that lasted a lifetime. Thanks for the gumbo and laughs and the big smiles. Thank you for serving our nation. You will be missed. The Lord broke the mold when he made you!

Ken was an outstanding Father; he was the first Dad I knew as a child that did it all for his kiddos, Emmy (Sp?) & Cole... he was a Genuine good soul that warmed the world with his spirit & will be dearly missed by so many. Love you always

Ken and I were raised around Bascom, Florida. Our families attended the same church. He always had a wonderful, caring personality. His sister, Cathy, and I were close friends and would visit each other on Sunday afternoons going home from church and returning to church that night. RIP. A life ended too early

Ken will be dearly missed. He was a great friend and did great repair work on many, many of my vehicles! I would stop by on occasion to say hello and laugh with him often. I enjoyed listening to his funny stories! He would tell me I was his customer of the year! God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Ken and I had some great times growing up together in Bascom, FL. The times we were together were eventful whether hunting, riding horses or hanging out in the hay loft of Momma Love's barn and giving the loft rats hell. Later on Ken lived with us in Mineral Wells, TX and worked at Ft. Wolters. I remember his wicked dance moves as he strutted down the hall in his frayed-cuff jeans and doing little leg kicks to the R&B pumping out of the old 8 Track. I also remember "lighting-up" the local police with roman candles out by the lake before we realized who we were shooting at! That was hilarious and the cops took a little baseball bat that Ken kept stashed between the center console and the driver's seat of his Chevy SS 396. We're lucky we didn't end up in jail. The fireworks, the miniature bat and shooting roman candles at the cops was all illegal! Anyway, I could go on but mainly just wanted to say that it was a good run and I know my parents will be anxious to see "Hollywood". -DT

I will always remember the smile on his face. I grew up in the neighborhood with Marilyn and Cole and Becky. Gone way to early, just a reminder that life is short. May Ken rest in peace and know my prayers are going out for the family and friends.
