Condolences to the family and loved ones of Eric, may he Rest In Peace. He loved social times and fun gatherings with his family, hockey teams or ball…darts, you name it he would be there. His children were his life. He left many memories and will be missed.
I have so many memories of Eric from when I was growing up. He demonstrated that it takes a village to raise a kid and I'll always remember him driving a whole crew of us all the way to Peterborough every day so we could go to hockey camp or having us all over during March break to play hockey on the lake. I always felt at home at his place. He will be missed!
From Hockey, Baseball, and relaxing at the lake with friends and Families. Eric was straight up as genuine as one could get. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family. Eric will be missed very much..
My condolences to all the Mitchell family. Eric was a friend , and nieghbor.

Our deepest condolences go out to Eric's family! I was very saddened to hear he had passed away! You are all in our thoughts and prayers! John & Melissa Lilje
I met Eric while playing hockey with Nathalie. It didn't take long before I was spending most weekends with the two of them and basically became apart of the family. Eric had such a big heart that he just took me in and treated me like his own, feeding me, teasing and when needed giving me a stern talk. He was such a generous and happy man, and always had jokes up his sleeve! I will miss him dearly! I offer my deepest condolences to Nathalie,Christina and the rest of his family! May his memories stay near to your heart and help comfort you all during your time of healing.
Our deepest condolences to Eric's family. Eric introduced me to the hockey "fraternity' in and around Colborne and as a result, friends, I may never have met. His devotion to hockey was his passion. R.I.P. Eric. You will be missed!
I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent and grandparent sure isn’t easy. Sending a big hug and prayers.
Heartfelt condolences to all the Mitchell family. I have many fond memories of Eric over the years. He was always so kind. He listened attentively and every now again offered up some fatherly advice. I know he will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
Sincere condolences Christina, Natalie, Sean and all of Eric's family. Have known the humour of this kind man for many years.
In my thoughts and prayers... Rest in Peace Eric
I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Eric going back as far as watching him race at the Brighton Speedway. He loved his Ford's and he and Dad always joked about it. He was so full of life with his laughter and kindness and he leaves many behind with heavy hearts. I will miss him greatly and I send my sincere condolences to all of his family. Rest in peace, Uncle Eric. Love always, Darlene
