Ivan Mitchell

May 22, 1937 — May 11, 2020

Ivan A. Mitchell (1937-2020) was born in Akron, Ohio to the parents of

James and Elizabeth Mitchell. During his years, Ivan was known as a goal getter.

He always had a plan in mind and a path to take him to where or what he wanted

to accomplish. As a young man, Ivan joined the United States Army and served

his country proudly. While he shared many stories, his favorite area to serve

was in Niagara Falls. After serving his country, Ivan learned the trade of glass

work and began his own business of installing thousands of windows across

many states including Ohio, Texas and Florida. Ivan had a love for El Camino’s the

more rustic and in need of repair, the better. While he never had a collection,

over the years he would trade one for another with a total of 17 El Camino’s

during his career. He still had the dipstick from his first El Camino that he would

polish every now and then. While he loved his trucks, the true love of his life

was Terri, who passed away 3 years ago. Ivan always had a beautiful, large smile

but that smile was even bigger when he met and married Terri. To his friends,

Ivan was a trickster-always trying to pull someone’s leg-which he mastered quite

well. Ivan loved his westerns and of course, the Duke-John Wayne. Thank you

Ivan for blessing the lives of many throughout your years- we love you and will remember you fondly.
