Obituary of Sidney "Myron" Mitchell
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Sidney Myron Mitchell at the age of 59. He was born on January 5, 1964 in Houston, Texas and spent most of his life in Pasadena and later in Pearland, Texas. He departed this world for Heaven to be with the Lord on December 16, 2023 after a long battle with metastatic lung cancer.
Myron is predeceased by his mother Marlene Eakin Mitchell, brother Carl Dewie Mitchell, Jr. and his two yellow tabby cats Dude and Buddy. He is survived by his 97 year old father Carl Dewie Mitchell, Sr., sister Nancy Mitchell-Mollard (Dwayne), sister-in-law Robin Reeves Mitchell, nephews Chris Mitchell (Kylie) and Garrett Mitchell, and nieces Courtney Mitchell Formby (Lane), and Andrea Mollard.
At an early age Myron discovered the fun hobby of racing slot cars. He spent many hours hanging out at the slot car tracks with other enthusiasts. His family once celebrated his birthday at the tracks with everyone participating. He was however not very impressed when his family members had several wrecks.
In his 20s and 30s, Myron developed a passion for the martial art of Wu Shu Kung Fu. He worked hard to complete his education and training that were required to pass the different promotion tests of certification conducted by the Wu Shu Kung Fu Federation, earning his first Black Belt in 1999. He was rightfully proud of this accomplishment.
Myron leaves behind a legacy of passion and expertise in the world of automobiles. He developed an early fascination with cars, including traditional, racing, and antique that would become a defining aspect of his life. He completed San Jacinto College Automotive Technology classes and certifications in several specialties.
Myron dedicated countless hours to restoring and preserving his ‘67 Camaro, turning it into a true work of art that reflected not only mechanical brilliance but also a deep appreciation for craftsmanship. He and his Dad, Carl would take the Camaro out for a short spin close to home and Carl would tell him to “get on it My(ron)” and he would hit the gas to their delight.
Myron’s love for all things automotive was evident to anyone who had the pleasure of engaging in conversation with him, as his eyes would light up whenever the topic turned to cars. He found solace and joy in the intricate details of engines. His garage was a haven for his craft, filled with the echoes of engines roaring to life and the scent of oil and gasoline—-a sanctuary where he poured his heart and soul into the machines that he cherished.
Myron loved his parents very much and became their primary caregiver when his Mom, Marlene became very weak shortly after her diagnosis of lymphoma. He displayed his unwavering commitment to their well-being until he became weakened with his own illness. He truly enjoyed family celebrations and gatherings at holidays and special occasions.
Myron was greatly loved and will be sorely missed by his family.
