  • Aunt Nola: I am so sorry for your loss. Mitchell was gone too soon. May your precious memories give you some solace through your time of grief.

  • Grew up with Mitchell and his brothers in the west end of Mount Vernon. Lot of good memories. Sad another river rat is gone. Always remember his brother Dave, Ron and Jackie Oliver, Terry Johnson, the OByrne boys, and other West Enders. May his family and friends find peace and comfort.

  • My condolences to the family. I am very sorry for your loss. I knew Mitchell from some sports activities we shared. He was a nice man and a pleasure to know.

  • Wow I’m so sorry to hear he’s passed. I’ve known Mitchell since elementary school in the west end. Even though I moved to California in grade 4, every summer I’d return I’d see and visit Mitchell throughout many years. I loved his Dj music and would go where he was playing. He will be missed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you

  • We send our deepest sympathy to Mitch’s family. I’ve known him since high school and Denny hung out with Mitch & the River Rats too. He says that had so much fun growing up.

  • I am sorry for the family’s loss. Mitchell and I had several conversations via the APBA Between the Lines forum, some of them about his illness. Many of us miss him already.

  • Mitchell was always a fun guy to be around. He could carry a conversation with the best of them😀 Thoughts and prayers to Chris and the family. Rick Shaw
