Obituary of Kenneth (Kenn) Mitchell
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kenneth Mitchell at Douglas Memorial Hospital, the 19th day of July 2021. Kenneth was a wonderful brother and bestfriend to his sister Kathryn Mitchell. He will be fondly remembered by the Mitchell and Blain family, and by his dear friends. Kenneth was predeceased by his parents Ivy and Duncan Mitchell, and his brother Dean.
Kenneth spent the last 21 years living in his home in Crystal Beach, loving life with his pets Lila and Winston. He was a very social and outgoing individual. With his warm personality and caring soul, Kenneth made friends everywhere he went. His daily exercise was always a must! He enjoyed long walks and biking, and loved spending time tending to his garden. He also had a strong passion for literature and art. Kenneth was also a volunteer at the Welland Hospital and he would volunteer alongside his therapy dog, with the St. John’s Ambulance Program, which gave him and others lots of joy and comfort. Him and his furry friend would visit nursing homes and hospitals to help bring a smile to many faces.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). As per Kenneth’s wishes cremation has taken place. The Mitchell family would like to extend a big thank you to all of the wonderful and caring nurses in the palliative care unit at the Douglas Memorial Hospital. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Humane Society. Kenneth’s online tribute page can be found at EssentialsNiagara.com.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
