Mr. Charles Robert Mitchell, age 88, died peacefully at his home on Wednesday, February 9th, 2022.
Mr. Mitchell was born on January 28th, 1934, in Wedowee, Alabama to the late Bob and Dessie Rodgers Mitchell. He was preceded in death by his wife of fifty-nine years, Gaynor Colley Mitchell; siblings, Hazel Mitchell, Luke Mitchell, William Mitchell, Nellie Byrd, and Becky Ward.
He was a veteran of the United States Army, serving as a mechanic and truck driver during his enlistment. He was employed as a mechanic at Dabb’s Auto Repair and worked in the logging industry with Mitchell Logging and Fuller’s Logging during his life. He always had a vehicle or lawnmower that he was working on around the house. He was readily available for projects that his family wanted to be done and truly enjoyed helping to make projects for Vacation Bible School each year.
He is survived by his children, Shelia (Todd) Fuller and Cynthia Gunn, all of Lanett; grandchildren, Alicia Gunn, Ashley (T.J.) Bond, Kimberly (Chad) Carter, Suzanne (Jaren) Carter, Amanda (Tyler) Slay, Stephanie Fuller, and Danielle Fuller; great-grandchildren, Adalyn Carter, Catherine Carter, Benjamin Todd Slay, and Levi Slay; siblings, Dovie Roberts, Zack (Amy) Mitchell, and Sarah Hughes; and brother-in-law, Freddie Ward; in addition to a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He loved his family fiercely and he was a strong man who was always grinning. He enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He will surely be missed by all who knew him.
