Not sure what to say?

We greatly enjoyed working with Mitch at Barnett's Magazine, he was a valued member of our team. Rest in peace.

RIP CSM (R) Sedrick Mitchell

Mitch always lit up the gymnasium when he entered to watch Coleman play basketball. Our conversations with him will be treasured for years to come as it was a privilege to know him. Comfort and peace to his family.

Sedrick, you brought many of us together with your infectious smile, which radiates from your very soul. You are most genuine and absolutely pleased to be anywhere at any time with every other soul. Our time In The Wind remains precious among my fondest memories, as we rode in Germany.

I raise my glass to you, my dear friend, we have shared from the same cup, amd we will share from the same cup again.

Till Valhalla, my old friend ❤

My Brother,

As a biker, we are unique
The open road is what we seek
The camaraderie of our brothers, our friends Knowing they'll be there
'Til the very end

But when we take that final ride
There'll be another by our side
And one thing I know, for a fact
God will also have my back

For it's in him now
We place our trust
For this road we travel
Is a must

So as we reach this road trips end
Know in...

We met a few times. You were a friend of my father in The Netherlands, Fritz van Duinen. Spoke to you when my father past away... Want to wish the family love and strength. God bless.

Mitch, I was shocked by the news that you passed away. My condolences, and a lot of strength to the family. You’ll be missed! God speed my friend!

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.


Sedrick's Obituary

Sedrick C. Mitchell “Mitch”, 69, of Sackets Harbor, NY passed away on 7 Jan 2021 from complications related to Covid.


He was born October 6th, 1951 in Lumberton, Mississippi to Major Coleman and Doris Mitchell. 


He enlisted in the U.S Army in 1972 and proudly served his country for 26 years. Many of those years were spent stationed overseas in Germany where he also met his wife, Theresa, with whom he shared nearly 30 years of his life. He retired as a Command Sergeant Major and went on to spend ten more years working Civil Service with the US Government.   


Sedrick was an accomplished man. He was an exceptional husband, father, brother and friend and was respected and beloved by all those who had the privilege of knowing him. 


Throughout his life, Sedrick had many passions at which he excelled. To name a few, he was an avid Harley Davidson Motorcycle rider and enthusiast, and an excellent photographer and writer. These interests connected him with a great many people, all who will say that he was a natural leader who always looked out for others. He truly saw the best in others and wanted to see everyone succeed.


In his later years, he spent a lot of time on his John Deere tractors. He could often be found in his garage working on them or out riding around and maintaining the property. He was a hardworking man, right until the end.  


He will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched for the better. He was a valued mentor, a beloved husband, father and a loyal friend.


Sedrick believed in living life to the fullest; in helping others and always finding the time to stop and talk with someone. To all his brothers in the motorcycle group; play some Blues on the open road in his honor and remember to live by his motto, “Ride hard! You can rest later!”

Rest in peace, Sedrick. 


Sedrick is survived by his wife, Theresa, his children Shanequa Colón, Coleman Mitchell, Clayton Mitchell, Vanessa Dixon, Sedrick Mitchell Jr., Marlon Mitchell, Conshetta Hopson; and his siblings, Charles Cooley, Claude Mitchell, Larry Mitchell, Nevell Mitchell, Lawrence Baker, Alma Clay, Linda Blackman and many grandchildren.  


Arrangements are with Reed & Benoit Funeral Home, Inc.
