What calls for special attention is that longtime Hancock & Moore sales representative David Mitchell died at his home here on Jan. 6 at age 64.
He had been a sales representative for Hancock & Moore, Jessica Charles and Randall Allan in South and West Texas for 13 years. Mitchell was a member of First Baptist Church in Morganton, N.C., where he grew up. A memorial service was held there on Jan. 13.
A 1974 graduate of the University of Alabama, Mitchell enjoyed gardening and golfing.
Aside from his father, Mitchell is survived by his brother, Jimmy Mitchell and his wife, Rebecca, of Jamestown, N.C.; a nephew, Trey Mitchell; a niece, Jenny Vestal and her husband, Lee; a great-nephew, Spencer Vestal; and a great-niece, Gracie Vestal.
Probably memorial contributions are made to First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 459, Morganton, N.C. 28680.
