James A. Mitchell
July 12, 2020
James A Mitchell passed away 7/12/2020 after losing his fight with coronavirus. Jim was a proud Navy Veteran who loved to be outdoors, whether it was drinking his morning coffee with the birds and the squirrels, or getting some wind therapy on the motorcycle. The most important thing to Jim was his family and friends. Jim's robust personality helped him stand out, and you always knew where he was when he was cheering on his kids. Jim was a caring man with a larger than life personality, and an even bigger heart.
Jim is survived by his wife Sheila, and children Rebecca Mitchell, Ryan (Elizabeth) Cotner of Brunswick, ME & Jennifer (Mark) Lookhart of Apollo, PA. Grandchildren: Blake, Mia, Aliona, Jonathon, and Christian. Also survived by siblings Greig (Linda) Mitchell, Roberta (Robert) Kozminski, and Dana (Gale) Mitchell, many nieces and nephews, and other family members and friends. Preceeded in death by his parents James and Mary Mitchell.
We will not be having a service at this time. When the time is appropriate we will gather to remember and celebrate Jim's life. Until that time, keep it in the wind.
In lieu of donations to the family, we ask you to make donations to Operation Combat Bikesaver in Crown Point, IN, in the name of Jim Mitchell.
