Andrew Mitchell, 50 Andrew Darnborough Mitchell, 50, died of cancer at Brockville General Hospital on October 27. He had been ill for five and a half months. Born in Bradford, England, on November 20, 1953, he was the son of Thomas Mitchell and the former Barb Tordoff. He came to Canada with his family in 1956, living first in Kingston and then settling in Brockville, where he lived from then on. He attended Westminster public school and Thousand Islands Secondary School, then worked at the A.E. Microtel plant for 15 years. Deciding to return to school, he attended St. Lawrence College and earned an electrical instrumentation mechanic diploma with distinction. He was self employed for two years, then started working at the Shell Lubricants plant 131Ú2 years ago, where he enjoyed the challenges of his work and came up with innovative solutions. On March 13, 1987, he married Ruth Mallette in Trinity Anglican Church, and they had two children. He was happy to help others when he could; if he didn't know how to fix something, he would soon find out through the Internet or at the library. He loved to learn and was an avid reader. He enjoyed rebuilding a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass and a 1977 Ford truck, and also renovating his home. In a quiet way he was a generous supporter of many fund-raisers. Mr. Mitchell is survived by his parents, wife Ruth, daughter Selina and son Quinten, all of Brockville. Also surviving are two brothers, Gary and wife Becky of Brockville and Steven and wife Mary of Whitby; sister Debbie Nadeau and husband Roland of Smiths Falls; mother-in-law Louise Little of South River (south of North Bay); sisters-in-law Lydia Mallette of Edmonton, Jane Etienne of Calgary, Elise Mallette of Thunder Bay and Heather Mallette of Windsor, and 20 nieces/nephews. He was predeceased by two aunts, Doreen Ward (who lived in Brockville) and Vera French (England); uncle Norman Tordoff; father-in-law Henri Mallette and brother-in-law David Mallette. Friends called at the Barclay Funeral Home, Brockville, before the funeral on October 29. Rev. Ron Hörst, of Trinity Anglican Church, officiated at the service; Larry Horahan, Mr. Mitchell's employer and colleague at Shell Lubricants, gave the eulogy; and his sister Debbie and niece Erin Nadeau gave tributes. The pallbearers were his brother Gary Mitchell, nephew Chris Mitchell, brother-in-law Roland Nadeau, friend Ed Grady, and friends and colleagues Pat Jutras, Doug Scott and Claude Renier. The honorary pallbearers were nephews Joel and Craig Nadeau. Burial followed at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery.
