Alton, 73, and a resident of Robeline, passed away April 19, 2022, in Natchitoches. He was born Jan. 29, 1949, to Fred and Mildred Irene Brown Mitchell in Robeline.
He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Evelyn Mitchell, Quinton Mitchell, Shirley Harrison and Kerry Freeman.
He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Robbin Winslow Mitchell; his children, Johnny Holland Sr. and wife Susie, Terry Mitchell and wife Cindy, Gary Mitchell and wife Gwen, Jerry Mitchell Sr. and wife Angel, Shannon Mitchell, Charlotte Mitchell, Juanita Carter, Amanda Carter, Tabitha Medina and husband Freddy, Alton Mitchell Jr., Shelby Winslow and husband Michael Shoemaker Sr., and Dustie Mitchell; brothers, Jack and Alvah Mitchell; and a sister, Geneva Elliott. He was blessed with 34 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.
Alton was a faithful and loving husband, a great Dad and a proud grandfather. An excellent provider for his family, he often sacrificed his own needs for the sake of his family and friends. He was a hard worker and worked for many years in the timber industry as a logger. In his spare time, he enjoyed hunting, especially hog hunting, but most importantly he enjoyed spending time with his family that he dearly loved. We take comfort in knowing one day we will be reunited with him in Heaven.
