November 24, 1975 – September 1, 2023

James David “Jimmy” Mitchell, 47, of Midlothian, Virginia, passed away Friday, September 1, 2023, after a hard-fought illness.

Born in Morristown, Tennessee, Jimmy moved to Richmond at a young age and graduated from Midlothian High School, class of 1993.  Jimmy was a wonderful chef and was most comfortable in the kitchen; he cultivated his cooking skills working in the food service industry, most notably Spinnaker’s Restaurant and Gregory’s Grill.

In addition to cooking, Jimmy loved music, entertaining others with his dry sense of humor, traveling to New Orleans or the beach, and most of all spending time with his brother, Luke, and his niece and nephew.

Jimmy is survived by his mother, Debi Mitchell; father, Jim; brother, Luke; sister-in-law Stephanie; niece, Sadie; nephew, Crawford; uncle Bill Pitts (Vivianne); aunt Alison Cummings (Danny); aunt Kim Craig and his loving extended family.  He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Roy and Nettie Mitchell; and his maternal grandparents, Dale and Shirley Craig.

Jimmy’s interment will be private.  A celebration of Jimmy’s life will be forthcoming.
