I had the pleasure of getting to know Mitch the past few years, mostly at social gatherings at the home of Amanda and Nick Austin. I always enjoyed chatting with him about the various concerts we each have attended over the years. Also appreciated seeing that twinkle in his eye as he talked about or interacted with his grandchildren Nathan and Violet. Sincere condolences to Amanda and Nick, Emily and Jake, Nathan and Violet, and to all of Mitch’s extended family and friends. May you all find solace in the memories of your finer moments spent with Mitch.
