Weston MacArthur Mitchell
May 6, 1989 - October 24, 2018
Weston MacArthur Mitchell of Austin, TX, 29, passed away on October 24, 2018. He was born on May 6, 1989, in Bryan, TX, the fourth child of Kimberly George and Gordon Mitchell.
Weston was a highly intelligent, vibrant, intense person who worked hard and loved those around him. He took a deep interest in the happiness of his friends and family and was known for his ability to make people smile. Anyone who knew Weston knew there was a cheeky sense of humor, raw honesty, and a caring nature beneath his tough exterior. As one of Weston’s friends has said, “Your hard shell was just a cover for the soft, gooey, sweet man that you are. You are loved by so many. I wish you could see the holes in our hearts. You imprinted on us. It will never be the same without you.”
Weston had made significant strides in the last few years, all of them good. He loved his job doing commercial plumbing and was excited about receiving his journeyman’s license sometime in 2019 after years of training. He was enjoying his life in Austin and talked of moving to Oregon one day once his training was complete.
Weston had a giving spirit that led him to adopt an abandoned kitten, the infamous Mr. Squeakers, with whom he shared his whole heart. Wherever Weston stayed, Mr. Squeakers was sure to be found. The bond between the two of them could never be broken. Weston had a great capacity for love and will be dearly missed.
Weston is survived by his parents, Kimberly George of Freeland, WA, and her fiancé Steven Carr, and Gordon and Holly Mitchell of College Station, TX; his maternal grandparents George and Barbara Cole; and his paternal grandfather Edward Mitchell. He is also survived by his six siblings and their families: Lauren Landivar and her husband Emrys, Kristen Mitchell, Gordon Mitchell, Jr., and his wife Cristi, Linnea Brown and her husband Eric and children Preston and Alice, Stefon Mitchell, and Aaron Mitchell; by his beloved cat, Mr. Squeakers; and by numerous other close family members and friends whom he loved dearly. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Jean Mitchell.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, November 9, at the College Station City Cemetery at 2530 Texas Avenue in College Station, TX, the future site of a remembrance plaque for Weston's family and friends to visit and remember him. A gathering will be held afterwards at 3304 Von Trapp Lane in College Station to remember Weston.
A celebration of life party will be held in Austin once Weston's ashes are available, so that some of them may be scattered in the area and so his friends can share memories. Location and time are to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your local no-kill animal shelter in Weston’s honor.
