Vaughan Mitchell died February 16, 2013, at the age of 78. He was a graduate of Alamo Heights High School and the University of Texas
at Austin, later earning a Master's degree in Urban Planning from UTSA. Vaughan was a native San Antonian and spent his career in the fields of construction and real estate. His special interest was in the revitalization of downtown San Antonio as a residential center, and he developed the first downtown condominium project on the San Antonio River. The story of Vaughan's life is inseparable from that of Sally, his high school sweetheart and wife of 57 years. They lived in a series of homes in the Alamo Heights area where Vaughan was raised, each of which they designed or remodeled together. In 1995 a shared love of the ocean led them to Aransas Pass, Texas, where they spent the next seven years living on their boat and cruising the Gulf coast. In later years as Vaughan's health declined, they shifted their residence back to San Antonio where they were surrounded by their many wonderful and supportive friends. Vaughan will be remembered by all who knew him as a person of integrity, generosity, and dry wit. He is survived by his wife, Sally; son, Scott Mitchell and wife, Linda of San Antonio; daughter, Melissa Connell and husband, Richard of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts; grandson, Ensign Joshua Connell and granddaughter, Katheryn Connell.
