Guy C. Mitchell


Guy C. Mitchell, 61, of Charlton and Malta, graduate of Burnt Hills Ballston Lake High School class of 1977, and Soul Extraordinaire.

On Sunday, October 25, 2020 we lost a giant of a man. Heaven’s great gain is our great loss. He was loved greatly because he loved greatly. Friend, father, soulmate, patient teacher, trainer, helper, guide, adventurer, athlete, and comedienne. Nurturer of people, land and machines. Great neighbor, great citizen, great soul. He never neglected an opportunity to aid another. Those whose lives have been touched by his know this deeply in their souls and that is why his being abruptly snatched away is so traumatic to us.

He was predeceased by his father Douglas Mitchell. Guy is survived by his wife Meg, children Rachel Mitchell Halleran (Connor) and Jesse Mitchell; grandchildren Cameron and Avery; mother Dorothy Mitchell; and brother Christopher Mitchell.

If you were touched by his life please join us on Friday, October 30 from 2pm to 4pm and 6pm to 8pm at Armer Funeral Home, Inc., 39 East High Street, Ballston Spa. In lieu of flowers, we would be blessed if you would bring a note of how he touched your life. With Covid restrictions our time together may be brief. Social distancing and facemasks are required.

Guy was just such an amazing man. He was always willing to help Amanda and I out with not just advice but going out of his way to help. It’s because of Guy that I was able to change the oil in my tractor last week without any help.

I know there’s a “give a man a fish and he will eat for a day teach him to fish and he will eat for life“ quote from The Bible. Guy's quote could be “Change a mans oil in his tractor and he will be good for 500 hours, teach him how to change it and he will be good for life”.

Oh the many conversations that we had for hours and hours at time, he just loved to talk and I was always so happy to hear his wisdom and his thoughts. We were so blessed to get to spend the time with him that we did and I know he was there for so many of us.

My deepest sympathy to Meg and Jesse and the rest of the family. Just remember that he is not truly gone for he is with us in Spirit and in our hearts. I know he is in Heaven watching down on all of us and sending Angels to give us comfort and peace and maybe a little advice too.

May the arms of Jesus welcome one of His flock. We anticipate when we can all be together in Paradise.
You were taken too soon, but we pray an everlasting peace now for Meg and family.

Started the Christian journey with this guy and a handful more. He was rock solid. He will not be forgotten.

Our deepest condolences. What a great "Guy". He was so funny as a younger man and we were privileged to have known him. May he rest in peace eternally.
