January 30, 1936 - November 26, 2021
Howell Ross Mitchell, 85 years old peacefully met his Lord an_dSavior on November 26, 2021. He was a proud, loving and exceptional husband, father and grandfather. Howell was born on January 30, 1936 in Palestine Texas as the only son to the late Waymon Mitchell Jr. and Ruth Evans Mitchell. Howell grew up on the family farm in Palestine Texas, where he graduated from Palestine High School in 1954 and played golf at the local country club developing his lifelong love of the game. He ultimately went on to graduate from Sam Houston State University with a degree in History. He met the love of his life, Mollye K Mitchell (formerly Mollye Kay King), in June 1958 at the Huntsville Tastee Freeze while attending Sam Houston State University. They were married for 61 years. Howell's life was centered around and was devoted to his family. He always said that one of his greatest accomplishments in life was having his two sons Lee and Clint, of whom he was so proud, passing on wisdom, skills and encouragement to living life to the fullest. In his spare time, he loved playing golf with his friends, racing quarter horses, raising cattle, watching football and driving his dog "Pancake" out to the farm. He is loved and will be dearly missed by his surviving wife, Mollye Kay Mitchell; children, Lee Josey Mitchell and wife Karen Mitchell, and Clint Houston Mitchell and wife Galina Mitchell. He will be sincerely missed by his loving grandchildren, Madeline Mitchell and Michael Mitchell. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the First United Methodist Church of Huntsville or a charity of your choice. A graveside service will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 2:00pm at Oakwood Cemetery. Memorial condolences to the family may be made at www.shmfh.com.
