Mitch was a great man. He always had a way of bringing laughter into a room. He was a kind, caring and giving person. He will most certainly be missed. Prayers to his family from ours.

He was one of the most beloved characters in the Class of '72 and will be missed by all. He never failed to make us laugh, lift our spirits and show us the love in his big heart. Generous to a fault. I saw him so seldom after I left Lexington in 1972, but he greeted me at each reunion, whether on the streets or at a reunion gathering, with warm remembrances and big hugs. So sad to lose him... Prayers for his wonderful family who he loved so much. I am flying off to begin a three week trip on Wednesday and can't make the drive to Lexington for the services. I am sorry to miss them and will be there in spirit.

So sorry to hear about Mitchell. He was a true southern gentleman. He ALWAYS had a smile and made everyone he came in contact with smile. I know you all will miss him, but I am praying that your good memories will give you comfort. Just remember, Nothing is going to happen to you today that you and the LORD can’t handle together. GOD bless you all.

This man was a great one. I could always reach out to him when I needed him & he was there. I messaged him just Thursday morning and ask him how he was & he felt ok he said then we discussed my health issues. He said that we dont know why bad things happened to good people but we will one day that our old bodies could only take so much but the main thing was to know the Lord. Well I know where you are now because I know that you knew him . It's my turn now to get to know him so I can one day make it to Heaven to be with him & all my loved ones that I love so much. See ya on the other side Unc. Thank you for being such an inspiration in my life. Rest Easy Big Guy ❤
