Ronnie Lee Mitchell, age 80, passed away at UT Medical Center in Knoxville, TN on Friday, June 24th, 2022.

In his free time, Ronnie liked to talk to people, he liked to walk around to collect buckeyes, and he enjoyed playing jokes on his coworkers. Ronnie was the type of man who never met a stranger, and he befriended everyone he met. He was so loved by many and will be deeply missed.

Ronnie is survived by his son, Raymond Mitchell of Oak Ridge, TN; brothers, Vestel Mitchell (Pat) of Clinton, TN, Jerry Mitchell (Patsy) of Clinton, TN; sisters, Joyce Dagley of Clinton, TN, and Phyllis Mitchell of Clinton, TN.

Raymond and "Dad" are like extended family to us. The wonderful and loving stories we got to share as part of this experience absolutely reminded us how much they both touch our lives. Ronnie, here's to a never ending trip to Krystal's with Ashley driving for square hamburgers. Here's to the friendliest smile and wave upon seeing you, and Raymond, here's to a lifetime of memories that we are so happy to be a part of with you. Love to you.
