Eugene Milton Mitchell Obituary
February 15, 1923 - March 24, 2014 Eugene Milton Mitchell, a man truly treasured by his family, friends and community, passed away early March, 24th 2014 after a short illness. Eugene (Gene) was born in Los Angeles, California on February 15th, 1923 and attended Compton High School and UCLA. Leaving UCLA to serve as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy during WWII, Gene later reentered UCLA and graduated with a degree in Chemistry. Gene went on to work at U.S. Steel where he met his future wife, Elizabeth Bruce Handy. In 1951, the couple married and later settled in Palos Verdes, California with their two children. Gene went onto work in Personnel Management and ended his career as Personnel (Human Resources) Manager at North American Rockwell in Newport Beach. Upon retirement, Gene and Elizabeth (Brucie) moved to Fallbrook, California; later, moving to Laguna Woods. Brucie passed away in 2009, and in late 2010, Gene met and married Margaret Adams Simon and remained happily remarried until the end of his life. Besides being a cherished husband, Gene also was a truly devoted father to David Mitchell, Claudia Michaels and her husband Kevin Michaels; as well as the most loving grandfather to his two granddaughters, Morgan and Megan Michaels. Gene's uniquely kind and generous spirit will be deeply and sincerely missed by his family and his friends, as well as everyone his life touched during his well-lived 91 years.
