Thomas Gerald "Tomee" Mitchell, 37, of Gwinn, passed away unexpectedly the evening of June 16, 2022.

Tomee was a loving father, son, brother, uncle and friend. His smile could light up any room and his laugh was contagious. Tomee grew up playing baseball with his dad as his umpire and loved shooting hoops with all his childhood best friends. He loved football and was a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints. Tomee adored animals, especially his life-long pup, Dottie.

He was a jack of all trades. He enjoyed carpentry, working on vehicles and you could find him at the local grocery store Larry's as your butcher. He never met a stranger and would always be quick to offer up some of the best advice to anyone he met. When asked how he was doing, he always replied "living the dream." He was a true inspiration to so many people, especially his pride and joy, Little Tomee, his son.

Music was his all-time favorite. He loved singing and he always told the best jokes. He touched the lives of so many people and he will be greatly missed.

Tomee is survived by his father, Dan Mitchell; mother, Minnie Mitchell; Grandmother, Natalie Nogales; spouse, Candace Mitchell; son, Tomee Mitchell Jr; stepchildren, Dominik Brooks and Alexis Brooks; sisters, Missy Mitchell, Niki Frost (Dean Frost) and Ashley Mitchell; brother, Sammy Soto; nephews, Daniel Wadley, Levi Mitchell, Landen Racine, Zachary Thomas Jr and Carson Thomas; and nieces, Madeline Frost, Elizabeth Frost and Remi White.
