Roy “Paco” Mitchell, of Middletown, Virginia, died Monday, February 17, 2020 at Winchester Medical Center.

He was born October 4, 1956 in Illinois, the son of Max and Edna Mitchell. Roy will be missed by all who knew him as he was a kind, and loving, good man, that loved to joke and tell stories. He was a thoughtful man, husband and friend. Roy enjoyed gardening, metal detecting, flea markets, reading about history, and civil war reenacting. He was a member of Battery M 2nd U.S. Artillery, the NSSA and charter member of The Artillery Reserve. He also enjoyed volunteering at Bowman library, book sorting, and book sales.

Roy is survived by his wife Stephanie, a sister, Pat Hasamear (Tim), a brother, Tony Mitchell (Mika), numerous nieces and nephews, and a very special cat named Cruiser.

Roy was a man with a big heart that anyone would be proud to call him ‘friend’. I know I was.
Some of my favorite memories are the trips we would take to Lake of the Ozarks. We would hang out with our friends from church. The place to be was ‘Dogpatch’. We would ride go carts, play arcade games and just hang out. Great memories that will never be forgotten.
Roy has a way of telling a story that was captivating and boy did he have a lot of stories!
You will be greatly missed my friend.

Paco was definitely a wonderful man I'm so sorry to hear he's gone but I know he found true happiness in his life with his wife and all his Civil War events they meant so much to him

Stephanie, we are so sorry about Paco. He was a kind soul and will be missed. Life is short, but eternity is forever. Keep in touch.

Some of my and Debby's best memories of Roy were during our involvement with the filming of the movie Gettysburg as part of reenactors/background artists. We spent several hours idle, waiting around for our time to be filmed. To help pass the time Roy and Eric Bivens got their hands on a prop 30 lb artillery shell and spent some time tossing it around as if it were a football. We also spent a fair amount of time with a prop "dead" horse named by Paco as Sparky the wonder horse. these were part of the good natured fun we all took part in to help make participating in a historic film more enjoyable. Roy was always a good natured soul and we are much less well off with his passing.
