James Earl Mitchell, 89, of Holly Pond, entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior on Friday, July 20, 2018. Mr. Mitchell was born January 27, 1929 to Earl and Naomi Bailey Mitchell in Etowah County.

James served our country honorably and with pride in the United States Army . We are grateful for his sacrifice to our continued freedom.  Mr. Mitchell was a welder and provided for his family with his skills.

Mr. Mitchell was a hunter and fisherman. He was know for his saying that he was related to everyone in one way or another.  He liked to sing and loved to talk. James loved to say he was left-handed, naturally, making him smarter than right-handed people. James dearly loved his wife, as well as the rest of his family. He will be missed greatly.

Survivors include his wife of almost 60 years, Kathleen Lovell Mitchell; brother, Marvin (Pauline) Mitchell; brother-in-law, Darryl (Candy) Lovell; and a host of relatives and friends.
