He was then united in marriage to Mary Kissinger Cline on September 22, 1990, in Marshfield, Wisconsin.

Gary was an old car enthusiast and loved to show cars and was the proud owner of a 1988 GTA Classic car. He enjoyed teaching others country line dancing. Gary loved to travel, especially going on cruises in the Caribbean and most of all spending time and making memories with his grandkids and great grandkids.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sherman and Mary Mitchell; his son, Scott Mitchell; four sisters, Lois Jean, Sherma, Linda and Glenda and three brothers, Dale, Steve and Kenneth.

To honor Gary’s wishes, his family will gather privately for a time of remembrance and to share their memories of a husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.
