David Mitcham

October 20, 1962 –
 March 31, 2022


David Lane Mitcham passed away at the age of 59 at his home in Carrollton Texas on Wednesday March 31st after a courageous battle with Cancer,  He was born October 20, 1962 in Beaumont Texas, grew up in Houston until his high school years when he moved to Farmers Branch.

David is survived by his loving wife of 37 years Joanna, their daughters Lindsey Mitcham and Katie Rickey, son in law Kendall Rickey and beautiful grandson Hudson Allen Rickey.  And he is also survived by his mother Dona Danforth, brother Mike Mitcham, sister Amy McKinley and husband Scott and many loving family members. He is reunited in Heaven with his father Claude Mitcham, brother Tommy Mitcham, nephew Thomas Mitcham., and father in law Willie Willliams.  As well as his beloved Grandparents Mamaw and Papaw Mitcham and many others.

David was a devoted husband, father and Papaw and lover of the outdoors.   He enjoyed hunting, fishing and sitting around a campfire.   Spending time with his grandson Hudson reading a good book about trucks was the highlight of his days these past few months.   David was a great friend to many and he loved each and every one.  David was also a dedicated employee at Hampel Oil.  He was one of the hardest workers and cancer was not going to change that.  He loved the Lord with all his heart and soul and that never waivered in the trying years of his cancer diagnoses.   He knew his heavenly home awaited him and he was ready to sit at the feet of Jesus.

The family would like to acknowledge the care that David received from his hospice nurses over the last 4 months.   Rhonda, Michelle and Rita were a true gift from above.  They lovingly cared for David medically but also emotionally.  Faith Presbyterian Hospice was a blessing for us during Davis’s transition.

Services will be at Valwood Baptist Church where David served many years as a faithful member and devoted Deacon.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
