James Lowell Mitchell, a longtime resident of Fraser, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family on Thursday, November 19, 2020. He was 74 years old.

Lowell was born on May 9, 1946 to James Howard and Mary Louise (nee Britt) Mitchell. After graduating high school, he enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served his country honorably in the Vietnam War. Lowell was stationed on the USS Chicago during his enlistment. After his service, Lowell married the love of his life, Diane Arline Keith on January 11, 1969 at Emmanuel Methodist Church in East Detroit. Together, the couple was blessed with three beautiful and delightful daughters; Sara, Amy, and Yvonne. Lowell worked for Ford Motor Company in Mount Clemens and later Utica as a printer operator, retiring on July 1, 2004 after 30 years of hard work and dedication. Outside of his work, Lowell loved spending time with family, watching Detroit sports, playing basketball with the neighborhood kids, and enjoyed his daily breakfast at Jimmy's Coney or Rams Horn. Lowell never stopped caring for others, and always sought to take care of his entire family. He always wanted to ensure his family had the best and was taken care of. He was a truly courageous man who would let nothing stop him, even into the final days of his life. While he did not tell his family how to go on without them, memories of him will continue on in the hearts of those who he loved and those who loved him. He was a truly courageous man who would let nothing stop him, even into the final days of his life.

Lowell is survived by his loving wife Diane; cherished daughters Sara (Christopher) Shunk, Amy Mitchell, and Yvonne (Mark) Mantych; beloved grandchildren Brandly Yakey, Alyssa Yakey, Thomas Lowell Mantych, Sophia Cheraniawski, Syvlia Shunk and Samantha Shunk; and dear siblings Charles Robert (Ginger) Mitchell and Karen (John) Moore. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Lowell was preceded in death by his parents.

A memorial gathering will be held in the spring of 2021. Instead of donations to charity, please consider a random act of kindess for a complete stranger, as Lowell was always doing.

I'm saddened to hear of Jim's passing I worked with him for 30 years, we started at Ford Mt.Clemens about the same time. I remember Jim and myself buying our first TVs at the same time for our families, we were very excited about getting them and talked at length about them after they arrived. I always looked up to Jim because of his high standards in life and about his job at work, we shared a many cups of coffee together while talking about our families and life experiences truly a great man. May I offer my sincere condolences to all members of Jim's family I know you will miss him as much as I will remember the time I spent talking with him....May God Bless you all.
