Mitchell Sr.; daughter, Catherine Mitchell and Vanity Duhon Wilette; daughter-in-law, Barbara Mitchell; and twelve grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son, Jimmy Mitchell. He was a legendary, innovative and charismatic sportsman. With his two sons he started the first bow fishing charter by way of airboat in south Louisiana. Over the last 25 years he owned and operated Mitchell's Airboat Charter Service. After retiring in 2006 he moved to Daphne, Alabama where he resided with his son and daughter-in-law.
