David Mitchell, 61, was born in Hobbs, NM on January 14, 1958 to Edward and Bettye Mitchell. He passed away at his home on May 7, 2019. He married Kathryn Powell on July 4, 1998.

David was a true cowboy. His love for horses was enormous and became his livelihood. At a young age he competed and showed horses. He then became a horse farrier and trainer. For 16 years he was the ranch foreman for Trent Stradley and Tom Williams at S & W Cattle Company. The last few years he has been a cross country truck driver. David was an inspiration to those he came across, always smiling and full of stories. He would give advice whether it was wanted or not.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy, his mother, Bettye, one sister; Denise D. Kane (Scott) of Hobbs, their two sons; Klint & Alyssa Kane and Tyler Kane, one step-daughter; Shannon Flowers, two grandsons; Austyn and Clatyn Kidd and a very large extended family.

He was preceded in death by his father in 2003.

    I'm very saddened to hear of David's passing and wish to share my condolences to all his family. David and I have known each other since we were kids and always considered him to be an honorable person and a lifelong friend. There aren't many cowboys left like him anymore.

    Dear Kathy and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. My memories of David in high school are filled with the thought of what a kind and sweet man he was. Please know that you are in my thoughts. I send Denise my condolences as well.

    David was such character, and an “Old Soul”, my father Tom Williams relied on him so much at the ranch and trusted him beyond words. As I type this, it is so hard to fathom that we have lost him. We trust and pray knowing that our Heavenly Father has David in his care and that he will also wrap his loving arms around the family and comfort them.

    I know David is out there riding fences, we just can’t see him from the road.

    Rest easy partner!

    Prayers and Love to the family
