Leroy Mitchell

February 9, 1948 — August 28, 2022

Leroy Mitchell, resident of Seminole, passed away peacefully in his home, Sunday, August 28, 2022 with his family by his side.

Leroy was born February 9, 1948, in Seminole to Lee Mitchell and Grace Coody.  He remained in Seminole until his freshman year when he went to Jones Academy in Harthorne and graduated in 1967.  Leroy married Debora Ann Marshall on October 3, 1968 in Seminole, OK.

Leroy worked at Axelson for many years before going to work at Wolverine where he retired.  Leroy soon went back to work at Oklahoma Pump and Supply.  His passion was his wife and children.  He coached his daughters’ softball teams, his granddaughters’ softball teams and anyone who needed a coach for their team.  He loved watching his son play football and continued watching Seminole football with his grandson Hunter, even after his son graduated.  He loved attending his children’s and grandchildren’s activities and rarely missed any of them.  His family was his entire world.  He was the most kind, loving and caring man.
