Charles “Gabby” Edward Mitchell arrived at the end of his journey of 69 years on June 7, 2022 at Seminole Alliance Hospital.  Chester Otto Mitchell and Lottie Clark Mitchell welcomed Gabby into the world on July 13, 1952 to begin his journey.

Gabby attended Strother Public School and went on to work in various fields and married his late ex-wife in 1990.  His most rewarding jobs were working for Covenant Transport as a mechanic and tire “guy” and working in the oilfield before his retirement.

Gabby most enjoyed working in his yard, cutting grass, talking with friends and family and making people laugh.  One of his favorite places to hang out, besides his front porch smoking a cigarette, was the I-40 casino.  After becoming ill, Gabby enjoyed watching westerns, listening to gospel music and watching his grandchildren play.

Gabby is survived by one daughter, Gina Bender; two sons, Ronald Bender and Robert Mitchell; one step-daughter, Tina Washington; one step-son, Joshua Harrison; many grandchildren, great grandchildren and relatives.  Preceding him in death are his parents and one daughter, Marie Daniels Roubideaux.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Seminole Care and Rehab for caring for Gabby the last six months.

Those serving as casket bearers will be Nathaniel Herrod, Alonzo Washington, Donovan Washington, Nevin Washington, Joshua Harrison and Byron Perry.  Honorary casket bearers will be Ralston Hailey, Adam Farani, Anthony Fixico, Esaias Harrison, Noah Ramirez and Rex Hailey.
