Randy V Mitchell passed away on May 7, 2017, at home with family and friends present after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Randy was born in Nampa, ID, to Richard and Norma Lee Mitchell on January 3, 1955. He grew up in Eastern Idaho and graduated from Aberdeen High School in 1973. He was an outstanding student and athlete and served as Student Body President. He attended Idaho State University on a football scholarship and never lost that Bengal pride.

He returned to Idaho to help run the new family business at Pine Resort at Anderson Ranch Reservoir. He went on to work at several southern Idaho beverage distributors in Sun Valley, Boise and Twin Falls.
Randy enjoyed outdoor activities with friends and family including: snow and waterskiing, boating, camping, fishing, bird hunting and especially elk camp and family gatherings at the cabin in Pine. Randy was a true friend and would drop anything to lend a helping hand.
