Michael "Mitch" Mitchell

August 29, 1963 — November 2, 2023


After 30 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis and a 1 year fight with cancer Michael “Mitch” Mitchell passed peacefully in his sleep on November 2, 2023.  He is survived by his 4 sisters Toni (Paul) Jancar, Lynda (Delbert) Pyles, Mary (Kevin) Adams and Patti (Todd) Mitchell-Wise.  He is also survived by his nieces and nephews, Stacy (Greg) Marti, Terry Pyles, Cedar (Adam) Bliven, Melissa Bynum, Christopher Foote, Krista (Chance) Thomas and Calyx Wise and a multitude of great nieces and nephews.  All will miss his sharp wit, smirky smile and unimaginable strength in the face of adversity.

He is preceded in death by his parents Joyce Marie Mitchell, nee Argelan, Harry Louis Mitchell Jr, grandparents Irene and Peter Argelan and Vivian and Harry Mitchell Sr. and nephew David Pyles who were all very excited to see him again as he runs with new legs and is riding around on his bike making mouth noises and getting and giving many hugs.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Mercy Hospice House who took loving care of Mitch, 175 Mercado St #131, Durango, CO 81301.
