Curtis Mitchell Memorial

Curtis Ray Mitchell, also known as Grandpa, of Garland, Texas, passed away in 2020

Curtis was born in Dallas. He attended and played football at Coffeyville Junior College and North Eastern Oklahoma University. Curtis worked in the bearing and power transmissions industry for over 50 years. He enjoyed fishing, playing golf, and cheering on his Texas Tech Red Raiders and Texas Rangers. After his retirement, you could find Curtis on a golf course, with his wife at the movies, at happy hour at On the Border with his friends, or on a road trip with his son and his family. He savored the moments when his daughter and her wife cooked for him or introduced him to a favorite local restaurant. He adored his niece Kelly and spoiled her often. When he wasn’t out and about, he was home curled up with his beloved dog, Annie, and watching everything sports. He loved shooting the breeze and never met a stranger. He was known for his fun-loving sense of humor and kindness. His love for his family was immeasurable and he will be sorely missed.

Curtis is survived by his spouse of 58 years, Carelyn Mitchell who works at Collin College and their children.
