Whether it was the way he told such wonderful stories or even his eagerness to get on the ice and play hockey with his younger relatives I always have loved my Uncle Mitch and the energy he put into seemingly everything he did. Mitchell always took such great care of his parents, family and extended family while making his farm a home where you would always feel welcome. I will miss him immensely but will always remember his warmth, smile and laugh.
