He was a huge supporter of all the sports programs in town and was one of the founders of The Eastchester Blue Devils youth football program. He worked for the town of Eastchester for many years and there was not a person who did not know his name. He loved his family and he liked nothing better than to spend time with his children and grandchildren. He relished he time he had wit them watching them play sports or perform on stage or just sit in the back yard with them on a warm day. He loved spending summers in Duxbury and Plymouth Mass fishing with his kids and grandkids. Oh yes and I cannot forget about his beloved Eastchester Eagles, New York Jets and Mets. He was truly one of a kind and will be missed dearly by all who knew him.

Mitch is survived by his wife Elaine, his daughter Lori Elson (Randy) and his son Doug(Danielle) His cherished grandchildren Eric, Luke, Holly, Derek and Dylan. His sister Christine Dobrydnio and his sister in law Rena Dobrydnio as well as many cousins, friends and too many acquaintances to count. .

I have just learned of the passing of Mitch. So sorry I did not hear sooner as I would have wanted to be on hand to offer the respect he deserved and to be with a dear friend one last time. Hard to believe we will not run into one another at a practice, game or on a street corner in town and have one of our wonderful sports conversations (generally some old Eastchester stories).
I first met Mitch in the summer of 1966. Was just out of high school and we would meet summer nights, after work, at the old Jarvis Bowl to toss the football around and discuss how the town needed a youth football program. This was the start of a 50 plus year friendship. Mitch was always proud of how our talks evolved into the formation of the Eastchester Blue Devils. Be it known, he was one of the first two people to bring a group together to get the program off the ground in 1967.
To Mrs. Dobrydnio, your children and grandchildren, my sincerest condolences and apologies for not being there for Mitch. We have lost a great man in so many ways…
