Kenny Edward Mitchell, was born in Hinesville GA, on August 19, 1963 to the parents of James E. Ellington and Lula M. Gaulden. His light dimmed on Earth and lit the skies of Heaven on June 29, 2019. Kenny Mitchell graduated from Mitchell High School in May 1981. He subsequently joined the United States Army in March 1982 where he proudly served as a Tanker Team lead. Kenny honorably and courageously served several tours both stateside and abroad before culminating his rewarding military career. Kenny Mitchell was preceded in death by his father James E. Ellington, and step-fathers Hosie Mitchell and Robert D. Godbolt.
Let's not mourn in this hour for Kenny but instead celebrate his life. He enjoyed and lived life to its fullest; loving sports, the great outdoors, working on cars, and riding motorcycles and bicycles. Kenny also enjoyed good food especially fried chicken, smothered pork chops and sweets of all kinds.
Kenny loved and adored his family and friends. He spoke of their love and compassion to everyone who listened. Kenny was a kind hearted man who would help anyone in need. There are not enough words to describe just how important Kenny was to his family and close friends. He was a man like no other and his infectious smile, warm spirit, and jovial personality will never be forgotten.
Kenny is survived by: Daughter, Corrine Watkins (Overland Kansas); Sons: Kai Daniels (Phoenix Arizona and Aaron Mitchell (Colorado Springs); Mother: Lula M.
