BENTONVILLE — Howard Allen Mitchell passed away Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010, at Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville, Ark. He was 63 years old. He was born Aug. 23, 1947, in Nebraska to Paul and Thelma Mitchell.

Allen graduated from Gravette High School in 1965. He played baseball at Crowder College for two years and finished college playing baseball for John Brown University. Allen was a founding member of the Arkansas 'Moonshiner' Softball Team. They were a successful slow pitch softball team for more than 20 years.

Allen was offered an opportunity to play professional baseball after college. Although, he loved baseball, he chose to finish school and teach. He received his degree in education and taught school for several years in Sulphur Springs, Ark. Allen was a friend to all and would do anything to help his friends and family. For the last 29 years, Allen was a proud and dedicated employee of Walmart Stores Inc.

Allen is survived by his daughter, Kara; brother, Rex and Mary Beth Mitchell; sons, Jason Gass and family, Jackie Gass and family; nephew Gib and Deree Mitchell and family; niece Tobi and Jeremy Harrell and family; and niece Pauli and Ryan Brown. He is also survived by many friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents Paul and Thelma Mitchell and two great-nephews Parker and Gavin Harrell.

His graveside service will be held at Hillcrest Cemetery in Gravette, Ark., at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 13. Rather than donations, Allen would've enjoyed you just spend time with your family, maybe at a baseball game.

Allen will always be remembered for his loving and caring demeanor. He had the biggest heart you will ever know. He was always willing to help anyone in need. He was a loving father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
