Cindy and I are thinking of you at this time of loss.
I have many good memories working with Mitch and am going to miss him greatly
When you and Mitch left MN I was just waiting for the time we could arrange a visit to see you both.
He was a fantastic person to be around always raising the spirit.
If I can help in any way please let me know
My the Lord be with you at this time.

To Lynn, Nicole, and Michael. I am so sorry. Words cannot express my sadness. We've all lost a wonderful person, a good guy gone way too soon. Mitch, you will be dearly missed, my friend.

When my sister, Lynn, first introduced us to Mitch we all thought he was fantastic and hoped he would be "The One". The day they married was a joyous one. We were thrilled to know he’d be taking care of our sister and be in our lives for years to come as our brother-in-law.
If Mitch was going to do something he was going to do it well. As was evidenced by his well manicured yard, garden, and home. He was a natural at fixing and building things and an avid hunter and fisherman. He was also quite adept at throwing horseshoes much to my brothers chagrin. He was a hard working guy who I’m sure put the same effort into his work as he did into his hobbies.
But more important than all that, Mitch was a good man. He always wore a smile; people were always drawn to him. He was a soft spoken guy who seemed to see the best in people. He had an active relationship with his kids and I’m sure their friends as well. My kids and the rest of his nieces and nephews all had the kind of relationship with him where they enjoyed his company and appreciated his opinions.
We all cherish the good people we meet along life’s path. Mitch was one of those to all who knew him. My family and I wish him a quick journey into Gods loving arms. And, pray his family can move forward knowing he loved and cared for them deeply.
Lynn & family, We are so sorry to hear of Mitch passing. We are sending love, hugs, prayers and healing thoughts to help you through this difficult time. Love always, Jim Klinkner & Diana
