Obituary

The Celebration of a distinguished MAN!

Perry L. Mitchell Sr. was born to Florrie Bell Mitchell and the late James A. Mitchell on February 3rd 1959. He departed this life on October 21st 2022 at Colleton Medical Center surrounded by his love ones. 

He received his education through Colleton County public schools.  Perry was a fast learner. He was a genius in math. Perry worked several jobs including the steel mill. He worked various jobs of cement. Later he was mentored by Mr. Vergil Salley. Perry in the year of 1998, began his own cement business. M&M Cement Company flourished with Perry and Peggy working side by side. Perry worked in the cement business until his health failed in April 2020.

He became a member of Star Light Gospel Mission Church at an early age under the late Pastor Rosalee Mitchell and Elder Leon Mitchell Jr. Perry continued his fellowship under Pastor Janice T. Mitchell. 

Perry  was united  by marriage to Peggy Bowman on June 12, 1999. To this union two children were born Perry L. Mitchell Jr. and  Janei K. Mitchell.  

Perry leaves his cherished memories to his wife of twenty- three years Peggy Bowman Mitchell; his mother Ms. Florrie Bell M. Mitchell; children, Perry L Mitchell Jr., Janei K. Mitchell, all of Walterboro, SC, Quentin Geddis (Paige) Clubhouse, SC, Latiesha Geddis (Jeffery) Moncks Corner, SC, Ricardo Mitchell (Kayla) Bowman, SC; 15 grandchildren; three sisters Rosa Mae Mitchell, St, George SC, Mary Ellison ( Donnie),  Gloria Mitchell Walterboro; two brothers  Mr. Ronald Mitchell of Miami Florida, Mr. Terry Mitchell of Walterboro ,SC. He was preceded in death by his father James A. Mitchell (Kirby), his son, Aandre L. Geddis; his brothers, Tony Mitchell, Joseph  Mitchell; his Maternal Grandparents, Mr. Walter Mitchell and Mother Jarisher (Ruth) Behlin-Mitchell; his paternal grandparents, Mr. Leo Mitchell and Mrs. Rosetta Adams Mitchell. A host of nieces, nephews and friends.

Perry had a radiant smile with dimples on each cheek. Perry was the life of the party. He would try his best to please everyone in the room. We started feeding people for Thanksgiving in the area where we both grew up. He was a giant of a man. I don’t know too many people who could out dress him. The gift of making someone smile should grow each as you take the time to purposefully make it happen. 

Perry we bid you farewell as you enter a new realm of life.
