Mitchel passed away on February 15, 2016, at the age of 95 and a half, in Bellingham, WA. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Edith Lazarus, and daughter, Naomi Lazarus. He is survived by his sons, Gary (wife Nancy and grandsons Nathan and Daniel), David (wife Barbara and granddaughters Kirsten and Annette), Mark (granddaughters Theresa and Alexis), and granddaughter Brianna (daughter of Naomi). Mitch was born in Minneapolis, MN on August 9, 1920. Mitch's commitment to family was always foremost in his thoughts. As the family patriarch, everyone in the family, both immediate and extended, sought his out for his counsel and guidance. He almost always had an opinion which he was more than willing to share with anyone who would listen. Mitch and Edith moved into the Willows Independent Senior Living Retirement Community over eight years ago and loved living there. Mitch especially enjoyed the staff and the many friends he had made. Services will be held on Friday, 2/19, at 10AM at Moles Greenacres (5700 NW Drive, Ferndale). To read Mitch's full life story, and to share memories, please visit www.molesfarewelltributes.com
