April 19, 1957 - August 3, 2021
Bruce Wayne (B.W.) Mitchell, 64, of Odessa, Texas passed away on August 3, 2021 at his home in Odessa, Texas. Bruce was born on April 19, 1957 to Clarence and Mary Mitchell in Tucumcari, New Mexico. He married the love of his life, Nancy Kay (Fowler) on October 14, 1983, in Dickinson, Texas. Bruce and Nancy were best friends and soul mates. They enjoyed spending time together, whether it was on the lake, traveling from casino to casino trying to win the "big one" or simply sitting in each other's company in their backyard. They had a special relationship and he loved her fiercely in a way she didn't even know was possible. Bruce was a one-of-a-kind father and Grandpa/Papa. He was selfless and never missed an opportunity to pass on his wisdom and/or thoughts, whether they were requested or not. He had a "special ability" to make a 5-minute story go on for what seemed hours. He loved his kids and grandchildren with all his heart. He enjoyed teaching them how to work on things, fish, and enjoy the great outdoors. Bruce worked many jobs over the course of his life but spent the better part of the past 35 years employed by Apollo Perforators, until his retirement in 2019. He was very respected and loved the friendships he made there. He was grateful for all the Lee Family did for him and allowing him to support his family. Bruce will be dearly missed. He is survived by his spouse, Nancy Kay Mitchell; four children, Michael Mitchell (Amber), Melanie Boyd (Ryan), Corey Mitchell (Caitlin), and Cody Mitchell (Amy); six grandchildren, Caleb Mitchell, Joshua Mitchell, Christopher Boyd, Krista Boyd, Addison Mitchell, and Grayson Mitchell; and one sister, Marilyn Acosta (Jerry), and a host of other loving family members and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence Earcel Mitchell, and Mary Louise Mitchell. Viewing will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021 beginning at 10:00 AM; Celebration of Life service will start at 1:00 PM. All arrangements will be held at American Heritage Funeral Home.
