A private Celebration of Life will be held by the family. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice.
Mitchell, gone, but not forgotten. I was shocked to hear this but not surprised. You had not been doing well as of late but you worried more about me than yourself. I think of the many conversations we had over all the years we knew each other and you were the smartest mf I ever met. I was glad to call you a friend as I did not judge people by their looks or problems but how they treated me. I will miss you but think of you often. Your good friend, Chuck Fitch. PS. I still have Radar the cat!
Love you radar miss you passing my car every morning an telling me whats on the radar!!! Nothing but clear open skies for you buddy R.I.P
Mitch once loaned me a large U-Haul to get equipmentto a gig. Siren had a gig in Titusville Fl. That was a most memorable gig. Thanks Mitch. I really did think you could turn back the mileage on it. Joe Reilly
