Mel Mitzel

mel mitzelMITZEL, Mel October 11, 1957 - February 4, 2021 With much sadness, we announce the passing of Melvin (Mel) Raymond Mitzel, after an almost three-year battle with Glioblastoma. Mel passed peacefully at his home, in Oakville surrounded by his family. Best friend and loving husband of Sally for 39 years. Wonderful father to Michael (Shauna), RaeAnn, Amie (Mark) and Erin (Brandon). Adoring grandfather to Owen and Addison, who made his heart soar. Cherished son of Anne Mitzel and the late Raymond Mitzel (1998), big brother to Norman (Lucille), Mavis (Eugene), Richard (Lorraine), Cliff (Karen). He will be lovingly remembered by the Rajchyba family, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Mel was born in Wilkie, Saskatchewan and grew up on the family farm near Tramping Lake. After attending the University of Saskatchewan, he began his 40-year career with the Hudson's Bay Company where he will be fondly remembered as a member of the senior executive team for his kindness and leadership by all his many colleagues and friends. Annual family vacations, golfing and fishing in Saskatchewan were the highlight of his summers. Curling and escapes to warm climates helped him to enjoy the winters. We would like to thank Dr. Kanwar and the numerous PSW and nurses, especially Vicentia for the excellent palliative care that Mel received in his final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the organizations that Mel was passionate about: Community Living Oakville, the Glaucoma Research Society of Canada or Wellspring Birmigham Gilgan House.
