October 8, 1961 - July 13, 2019
Timothy Rodney Mitchell born 10/08/61 in Baltimore Md. He went home to be with the Lord on 7/13/19 in Heber City Utah. Tim was a beloved husband, father, brother, and friend. Tim was renowned for his ability to light up a room and make people laugh. A close friend had recently described him as a “big, responsible, hard-working kid.” And Tim was indeed respected by his family and colleagues for his inexhaustible work ethic: just this past March he was honored with distinction for thirty years of fruitful service at Stacy & Witbeck, Inc. He was a renaissance man of the rail world who late in his career started to work as a job estimator but never wanted anyone (especially young “cocky” types, he might say) to forget he could outdrive spikes against any of them in the hot sun at any job site. He was quite the entertainer and loved a audience whether on the karaoke stage, in the weight room, or at the office. He exhibited strength in both body and spirit his entire life, and most especially in his battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Even in his suffering with the fatal disease he demonstrated generosity and hospitality to all of his numerous friends and family. Tim loved to fly fish and even when in a wheelchair he had a guide take him out and put him in the river! He also loved golf and riding in the UTV up into the Uintas. Remarkably, in his final days he still cracked us up, told us the right way to trim roses, and, most importantly, ensured us beyond any doubt of how much he loved us. He was known as one larger than life and, having departed that life of this world, may he rest in peace in the next. He is survived by his wife Karen, son Luke, sisters Cynthia, (Doug) Brenda (Chris) and Barbara, brother Brian and his father Walter. Nieces, Kelly, Alyssa, Ashley, Jami, Amanda and Meghan. Nephews, Timmy, Christian and Jimmie. Tim was preceded in death by his daughter Samantha and his mother Patty. He will be sorely missed but we rejoice his suffering is over and he is with the Lord. A Requiem Mass will be held at St. Mary’s of the Assumption on July 22nd at 7pm. 1505 White Pine Canyon Road Park City, Utah. A Celebration of Life will be on August 10th at 1:00 PM at Touchstone Christian Fellowship (5300 Madison Ave. Sacramento Ca.). All are welcome. In lieu of flowers please donate to Cure PSP, Inc at PSP.org in memory of Tim. Condolences may be shared online at probstfamilyfunerals.com.
