Jun 20, 1927 - Feb 11, 2024

East Orange, NJ

Deacon William “Billy” McKinley Mitchell , 96, left this earthly home to be with his Lord, on February 11, 2024. Deacon Mitchell was born June 20, 1927 in Aiken, South Carolina. He was the oldest child of the late Johnnie M. Mitchell and the late Ethel Lucinda Lee Mitchell. Shortly after the Deacon’s birth, the family moved to New York where his brother, John Lee Mitchell (deceased); sister, Helen Mitchell Woodard (deceased); and sisters Juanita Mitchell, 94, and Marion Mitchell Butler, 87 were born. Deacon Mitchell was a product of the New York City school system. He attended PS 14 in Corona Heights and graduated from Newtown High School in 1947. After high school, Deacon Mitchell entered the US Marine Corps. Upon completion of his military duty, he studied Drafting and Architecture. He worked alongside his father at Sperry (Gyroscope) in New Hyde Park, New York as an Inspector and he was employed at New York City Bridge and Tunnel Authority until his retirement. While at the New York City Bridge and Tunnel Authority he represented the City of New York as an Inspector in China, Japan, India and Dubai. On Deacon Mitchell’s 26 birthday, June 20,1953, he married Frances Ophelia Shelton Mitchell. From this union came one son, La Mont Joseph Mitchell (Emogene-deceased). Frances and Deacon Mitchell enjoyed many years of marital bliss until her passing in 2002. After his retirement he enjoyed a career as a realtor and notary. His most successful endeavor was as a faithful member and willing worker at First Baptist Church in East, Elmhurst, New York. Deacon Mitchell received Christ as his savior at a very young age, and his affiliation with his church family was the highlight of his life. He served continuously under the ministries of Rev. William E. Gardner, Rev. Theodore R. Lee, Rev. Brookward Bush ,and finally Rev. Patrick Young. His devoted service was untiring. He attended all church activities, served on the Deacon Board for over 35 years, and opened the doors of the church in preparation for service each and every Sunday until he moved away from New York. Deacon Mitchell loved First Baptist Church and its congregants . He traveled with the Church Scholarship Committee to Egypt, and in 2001 he traveled with church members, his wife and mother to Ghana, Africa . While there they were able to connect with the original African tribe from which his mother descended. Deacon Mitchell’s Lay Ministry was to visit the Sick and Shut In. He faithfully visited sick and senior congregants in nursing homes, hospitals and in their homes (some of the people he visited where younger than he was.). He transported people to doctor’s appointments and community events. Deacon Mitchell always offered support to people who needed it. He loved the outdoors and was especially fond of hunting and fishing. When you couldn’t find the Deacon or reach him on the phone he could be anywhere from Alaska to North Carolina on a fishing expedition with his friends, Nat and Esther Thompson and Lucy Burton. On several occasions he traveled to Montana to hunt for elk and deer. Deacon Mitchell and his late wife Frances both came from large families that expanded beyond anything that you could have predicted. He was beloved and enjoyed by his family, a constant favorite who encouraged the young people and made each and every one of them feel uniquely special in his eyes. Deacon Mitchell had 32 nieces and nephews, 71 great nieces and nephews, 89 great-great nieces and nephews and 16 great-great-great nieces and nephews to honor his legacy. We were extremely blessed to have this Christian gentleman in our family and as our example. He was pre-deceased by his wife, Frances Ophelia Shelton Mitchell; his parents, Johnnie and Ethel Lucinda Lee Mitchell; his brother John Lee Mitchell ( Margaret-deceased); and sister, Helen Mitchell Woodard. He leaves his son, La Mont Joseph Mitchell (Emogene-deceased); his Grandson, Kenneth Lamont Mitchell; sisters Juanita Mitchell and Marion Mitchell Butler as well as a host of family, friends and neighbors to cherish his memory. Deacon Billy Mitchell was a” breath of fresh air “, “a force of nature,” and a tasteful dresser with an infectious smile who gave the best hugs. This Deacon, husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and uncle was our family treasure. He was the best of us, and we are better because of him. He will be eternally loved and sorely missed. Lovingly Submitted, The Family
