My condolences to the Mitchell family on the death of Owen. My husband Otto knew Owen from NH Machine. I remember going with Otto to visit Owen some years ago. The connection continued with me as a German teacher of Steve and then Zach. May your memories of Owen bring you joy at this time of sadness.

Just talking to him, he always put a smile on our faces.He will be missed by all.I grew up knowing his parents in Martindale, My mom and I, would often go down and spend time with Magdalena.we are sorry ,but Doug and I will not be able to attend the services. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Doug and Vicky Hensel
