Robin Elliott Mitchell


In the early morning hours of May 7, 2016, Robin Elliott Mitchell peacefully passed away in his bed next to the woman who loved him for 35 years. His children were upstairs and the house was filled with a sacred calm. Last September, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and with treatment, his iron will gave us a precious 5 good months before the battle turned hard. Every setback was met with endless optimism by the entire Mitchell family. In the last weeks of his life, Rob knew that he had to accept his own mortality. He met death without fear. In his own words, he "got 60 years on this planet," and had no complaints.
Although he had accepted his fate, his friends and family could not fathom a life without him. In his 33 years as an attorney, Rob Mitchell made a huge impact in the lives of his acquaintances and clients with his generosity and devotion. He worked for his clients like they were family and his colleagues knew his door was always open to them.

Rob is preceded in death by his father J.B. Mitchell, and is survived by his wife, Susan, his son, Reagan and daughter, Jillian, sisters Janis Malandrino and Kathy Carter, and mother, Lula Mae.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, May 21, 3 p.m. at St. Mark's United Methodist Church, 600 Pecore, 77009. A reception will follow at 902 Heights Blvd, 77008.
