Mitch was a joy to be around. His highly energetic nature was infectious. When you got him to talk about music shows, his stories streamed endlessly. His memory is a blessing.

Mitchell was a calm, tranquil, kind and gentle person. He loved all kinds of music. I was honored to be "maid of honor" when he married Kris. We spent many memorable times with them over the years. It was wonderful that he and Kris travelled all the way to California to be an important part of our granddaughter's Bat Mitzvah. We always enjoyed spending time with him. We will miss him.

Such a beautiful & open face you have, Mitchell.
I wish I'd had the privilege of knowing you.
Your Aunt Roberta (not Bobby to me) speaks of you & Kris, and your wonderful family often.
You, and all the precious memories you made, will forever remain a blessing to all who knew and loved you.
You are free.
God speed, dear Mitchell.

With love,

Wow. This was hard to see. I've known Mitch for at least 40 years and have so many good memories. Movies, music, late night chats. So glad we reconnected a few years ago. And so sad he's gone. He will be missed but always remembered.
