Shane Mitchell - Dec. 1981 to Sep. 2010

Travis Shane Mitchell, 28, of Fairfax Virginia, formerly of Rigby and Idaho Falls, Idaho, passed away September 24, 2010 near Baltimore, Maryland.

Shane was born December 21, 1981 in Logan, Utah, to Travis Don Mitchell II and Julie Hall Mitchell. He was a graduate of Rigby High School.

As a faithful priesthood holder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he shared the gospel in the Ukraine, Kiev Mission from 2001 to 2003.

Shane married Holly Adams on May 20, 2006 in the Logan, Utah LDS Temple. Shane served with the Idaho Army National Guard 116th in Iraq prior to his marriage, then with the U.S. Army Reserve as a Russian linguist. He traveled to Germany as an interpreter for a military exercise and to Russia for a linguistic school in which Holly was able to accompany him.

Shane obtained a Bachelor’s Degree with honors from Utah State University. It was while residing in Logan that Shane and Holly had one of the best days of their lives as they welcomed Preston into their family. Shane was currently pursuing a law degree at George Mason University School of Law. He was a member of the J. Reuben Clark Society of Law Students. He was appointed to the Journal of Civil Rights Law at GMU. He and his family were residing in Fairfax, Virginia, at the time of his death.

Shane enjoyed life. He could fix anything; his family relied on him to build, repair, assemble, or install everything. Shane learned to sew, knit, and cook gourmet meals. He loved adventure, travel, and living in the Washington D.C. area. Most of all, he adored his sweet wife Holly and little buddy, Preston.
