Preceded in death by parents, Charles Raymond Mitchell Jr and Eleanor Mae (Nelson) and brother

Survived by his wife Martha (Ginete), daughters Shannon Mitchell and partner Christopher Lee,
Summer Smith and her husband Justin Smith, children gained through marriage Jose Ginete and

Chuck (Chuckie, Chuckles) was a lifelong sports fan. Faithful to his Cubs, Bears and Spurs, he
shared that love with his family who loved attending games or watching on TV with him, including
many sports naps on the couch. Highlights included the Bears Super Bowl XX win on his 35th
birthday, the Cubs finally winning the World Series in 2016, and our numerous Spurs Championships
and runs.
A friend to everyone who knew him, Chuck was well loved, highly respected, and will be terribly
missed. We like believe he was first greeted in Heaven by good dog Max, his faithful companion of
17 years, and who he described as being the other half of the best and longest relationship he had
ever had. He loved animals and was especially fond of dogs, but always enjoyed taking his children
and grandchildren to the zoo, where he hoped to be a volunteer docent during his retirement. He
enjoyed the outdoors and went camping when possible, enjoyed hiking, and recently went on his first
zip-line adventure with Martha, much to the joyful surprise to all their children.
Charles (Chuckster) was a longtime employee of Republic National Distributing Company, he had
been in his industry for more than forty years. He was a dedicated worker who loved what he did and
especially those he worked with. Always determined to go the extra mile, as well as supporting
recreational work events. He was always the first to volunteer as a judge for the RNDC Warehouse
Rodeo.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
