Although he was employed at the City of Quincy Utilities for more than 20 years, the work he loved best was on the family farm in Mount Pleasant. When he needed time for meditation and reflection, he most often found himself in his boat, floating down the Flint River.
Engaging in multiple hobbies, he became very skillful in numerous crafts and, for a while, earned his livelihood as a welder. His dad once said of Mitch that he could build anything, make anything and fix anything to which he set his mind.
Mitch is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Celeste Fleetwood Lewis, his daughters Abigail and Caroline Lewis of Quincy, his brother Michael Lewis (Robin) of Tyler, Texas, sister Monica Brinkley (Craig) of Bristol, his mother and father-in-law Ross and Shirley Fleetwood of Tallahassee, his sister-in-law Zetra Fleetwood of Tallahassee, brother-in-law Michael Fleetwood (Ingrid) of Oxford, Georgia, numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Bernard and Annette Lewis, his maternal grandparents Maxwell and Irene Downs, his paternal grandparents Bloxham and Jimmy Lewis, and niece Lauren Lewis.
