Thank you Mr. Mitchell for the summer roustabout work and bunk at the south Houston Blue Ridge lease without which I could not have returned to UT in 1962.
To the Mitchell family, my condolences on the passing of this good man.

To the Mitchell Family: Your Dad has been a heroic figure in my life. And I don't exaggerate. There've only been two: Francis Coppola, and George Mitchell. Everything about what he accomplished, and even moreso, what he dared to do, has been very inspirational to me. My curiosity started way back at UT Austin when Kirk spoke of a “Limits To Growth” conference, and I dug deeper to understand what exactly that was. I am so glad that I got the chance to chat with him 5 or more years ago in Galveston, when Kirk invited me to interview him, saying "here's your window”. I immediately flew into Houston then drove to Galveston with a small video camera in hand. Watching his routine from easy chit chat at Kroger's, to then accompanying him to his weekly meeting, then seeing him check out the status at one of his hotels, I saw a man who could mix with anyone at all, and see & extract value there.

Your dad was a great man, and he raised some super bright children, inculcating early habits like reading the NEWS in the newspaper in the morning at breakfast. Those habits paid off in all of you I have known, because I'm quite sure that your awareness of the world pulsing around you influenced the wide diversity of career industries each of you chose. I'm lucky to have met him.

What a wonderful man and an incredible legacy that he and Mrs. Mitchell leave behind. I knew him as a child as the neighbor across the street who was always cheerful and kind. I send my thoughts and prayers to all the Mitchell Family. Mimi Topper Stinson

One so accomplished and blessed, who was truly a self-made man, of course with Mrs. Mitchell's as his partner. Both such incredible people, who were so unpretentious. I worked for MEDC in the early 80's and I so remember that yellow shirt and brown tie (squared off across the bottom) with the orange stripes. That and the fact that as other officers of the company updated their cars, he stayed with that 1979 Caddy...... He stayed such a normal person to all. May the blessings of God stay with that whole family.

America, Texas and Galveston is a better place because of George Mitchell.
He will surely be missed.

God Bless the Mitchell Family. He and his brothers (especially Christie) were well known in Galveston when I grew up there in the 50's and 60's. Christie owned a fun place on the east beach called "Christie's". They had food, live music, showers for the beach goers and always lots of fun. Christie was always seen there with his customers having a good time. Often George was there as well. They were wonderful and generous people. I have such fond memories of them both. Rest in Peace Mr.Mitchell. Say hello to Johnny, Christie and Mrs. Cynthia as well.

Such an (awesome) being in the midst of those whom dwelt or dwell in the Woodlands of Texas. I agree, what a giant of a man through His works. And, so America has pumping wells of gas & oil by fracking, we have provision. Some gur'ipe while others rejoice...go..figure. "Lol." However this man did what he knew to do. May he rest in peace, now. And, may his families carry on his well known for (generosities) on behalf of his calling. Everyone has one but his is well spoken of right into the moment of eternity. "May God Bless," those whom seek Him in their time of need.

An original "BOI" --Born on Island---which he loved with all his Heart. My brothers and I have known Mr. Mitchell for tha past 45 years. He was a warm, loving and caring Man. He and his brothers were one of a kind. Mr. Mitchell and his brothers (Christie and Johnny) will be missed but never forgotten. My prayers are with the Mitchell family.
