(Mitch) Roy Mitchell has died But lived life to the full..
My name is Louise; I'm Roy Mitchell's daughter.
I came across your blog tonight and was so thrilled to see your 2008 entry about dad's War Cry job (his longest serving client of 30 years, as it happens!)
Anyway, I felt moved to let you know that sadly dad passed away five months ago.
He was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2007 and fought so bravely (and brightly) for three years. He was still working just a week before he passed away on Sunday 23rd May, making a grand total of 34 years in the cartooning business.
He lived his life to the full; 64 going on 24 - and as a friend said recently, he was quite unimaginable as an old man...
Thanks for making my heart happy with your wonderful blog.
You're more than welcome to do that.
Let's continue to feel fortunate in having such amazing dads - some sadly don't have that privilege, eh?
All the very best - and keep blogging!
We certainly had very talented artist Dads..and many fond memories..
