Steven R. Mitchell was a man blessed by everything on heaven and earth. On July 18, he departed this earth while enjoying the beauty of mountain roads and the thrill of the wind while riding his Harley. His wife, Sherry, was the love of his life and his best friend. He loved family and friends with incredible passion. Everyone relied on Mitchell anytime they needed help. He was there to pound nails, cook for the troops, help with a celebration or just be a friend to lift you up when needed.
He graduated from ECU in biology and worked in State Government for 33 years protecting our environment. As a member of the Masonic Fraternity, he practiced relief, brotherly love and truth. Under the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God.

Mitchell (Dorothy); brothers, Stuart (Alexis), Scott (Donna); sister, Stacy Garofalo (John); step-brother, Cristopher Sefransky; sister-in-law, Vickie Bowles and brother-in-law, Monty Pridgeon (Lee); many loving nephews, nieces, great nephews, cousins, godchildren and lifelong friends who will miss his fun-loving spirit.
