    “Deepest sympathy to all.”
    – Ann Stewart

    MITCHELL, JOHN F. “TED” JR., 89, of Louisville, passed away Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at his home with his family by his side.

    Ted was a United States Navy veteran of World War II. He was a hospital corpsman during the D-Day landing on Omaha Beach at Normandy on June 6, 1944, and later served with the United States Marine Corps in the Pacific Theater.

    Ted was born October 4, 1922 in Atlanta, GA to the late Reverend John F. and Myrtle (Drane) Mitchell. Growing up, Ted was active in many sports, including football, baseball and basketball. After his 1941 graduation from Fern Creek High School, Ted attended Centre College before enlisting in the Navy. After the war, he graduated from the University of Georgia, and did postgraduate work at Emory University.

    He was a retired optician, and a former member of the Great Books Society, Buechel Park Baptist Church, and the Buechelites.

    Ted is survived by his wife, Joyce (Wages) Mitchell; his three children, Lori Boyd (Dave), John F. Mitchell III and Steve Mitchell (Laura); a granddaughter, Carrie Coin (Chris) and their expected, Ted’s great-grandchild; a sister, Mrs. Sara Jean Ford Bozeman, of Greensburg, IN; niece, Kathy Woodruff (Steve); nephew Steve Compton (Michelle); cousins, Herbert Drane (Dorothy) and James Hipps (Mae); and several more cousins.

    The family would like to express our gratitude to Ted’s son, John, for devoting himself to Dad’s round-the-clock care, in order that Dad could live out his days at home, as he always wanted.

    Cremation was chosen. Memorial celebration of life will be noon on Monday at Newcomer Funeral Home, 235 Juneau Dr. in Middletown, with visitation there from 10 a.m. until time of service. Internment will follow at the Veteran’s Circle in Resthaven Memorial Park.
