    Roy Earl Mitchell was a horrible,mean, person,that couldn’t even be there for me,his son after my other half of 28 yrs.passed, along with other mean things he did to me over the yrs. I tried many times over and over to show him I loved him, but it was a waste of time.Not one family member notified me of his passing,so I can’t blame him it runs in his family.God forgive me but he hurt me so bad, I would even leave birthday an Christmas gifts in his mailbox, still no reply..I’ll never forget the time, couple winters ago, freezing cold, with my 23 yr.old dog,we had to sleep in the Walmart parking lot with no heater for almost a wk. I begged him to stay with him,even offering to pay,but he turned his back on me.I respected and looked up to my Dad but it was hard to love him because sometimes he could be so mean over crap that didn’t mean anything. I tried to take care of him texting and calling, asking if he needed anything but to no use. I was homeless that short time because I was driving a semi and hadn’t been paid in a month.All I ever wanted was for him to treat me like a son.It wasn’t all bad tho,I do have some good memories of us together, there was times when he was fun to be around, I looked up to him, I felt really bad seeing him alone in that house all the time but there was nothing I could do. I hope your resting in peace, I love you Dad, Robin passed wk.before Christmas, and you pass a wk after Christmas, give her a hug for me,,,, Kenny Mitchell, first son

    Roy was a very caring and loving man and you could always count on him to lighten the mood with his sharp and funny wit. You also could count on getting a big hug from him every time you meet . There will never be another man quite like Roy Earl and his memory will live on forever in the hearts of all that loved him ! “What we have once enjoyed. We can never lose . All that we love deeply Becomes part of us .” Love you forever my Roy Earl ! Gloria
