Ross Mitchell "Mitch" Greenawalt II

Over the last few years I got to know Mitch through his wife and sister-in-law. I know that he will be dearly missed by family and friends. He was one of my moms cousins and I'm sure that they're both enjoying a musical time up above. God rest his soul. Lore Kebir Lomita, Calif.

I loved being in the marching band under his direction. He was wonderful with all of us. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to have just learned of Mitch's passing. I enjoyed our chats in the Kinship Kafe, and listening to his participation in the bell choir. My prayers are with you all.

Earlier today I inquired of someone about Mr. Greenawalt and Lowell Unger. I am so sorry about the answer I received. I always thought he was a remarkable brass player. Our band room was so small in 1961 that he would move up and around the risers to listen to individual players. I remember one day he went up and was listening to a trumpet player, Bobby Sombati, and then put on his own mouthpiece to show him how to do the passage in question. At the end, he added a riff of his own. It was really the first time I had heard an individual trumpet played so well. At band camp, with his crew cut and his pipe, he suffered through the hot August days while the high school band stumbled through new Autumn routines. He was a good guy and a good musician. Please accept my sincere sympathies.

I consider it a privilege to have worked with Mitch at Copley. His service was uplifting and full of music, a true reflection of the person whom we mourn. Please accept my sympathy.
