Gordon Lynn Mitchell, age 73 of Delton passed away peacefully on January 7, 2020. Gordon was born on December 8, 1946 in Hillsdale, Michigan, to Robert and Helen (Willison) Mitchell. Gordon was a 1965 graduate of Climax-Scotts High School. Following graduation, Gordon attended Moody Bible Institute before enlisting in the United States Army. He served his country faithfully for over twenty years in active duty and seven more as a reservist. During his time in the service, Gordon worked as a linguist, graduating from the Defense Language Institute mastering Hungarian and Korean. Gordon also attended Trinity Seminary and a seminary in Hawaii. In his free time, Gordon enjoyed woodworking and making handmade pens.

I will always hold Gordon in my heart. He was my Sunday School teacher for years. The knowledge he had gained in his years at Moody Bible, the US Army and in service with God, shaped his Godly life. He always had a quip for his students, "Are you standing on the promises or sitting on the premises". He was a voracious reader. He loved gardening, wood work and most of all service to God. He came by just to visit one afternoon and the Jehovah Witness folks stopped by. I invited them in and we testified to them and asked questions and and offered prayer. It was a very personal moment I will always remember. What a friend. What a servant of God. My husband and I will miss him along with everyone in the Hickory Corners Wesleyan Church.

Tribute to Gordon Mitchell

It was a privilege to be Gordon’s pastor for twenty- one years at Hickory Corners Wesleyan Church. Norma and I found Gordon to be a man with a gentle and kind spirit who always cared about people. He loved ministry. Gordon served in many leadership positions at the church as well as ministering at nursing homes and other places with his speaking and musical abilities. He was a pastor’s friend. Gordon loved the Word and was a constant encourager to our church family.

There are two passages of Scripture that I believe describes my good friend Gordon.
Psalm 1:1-2: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law he meditates day and night.”
In Acts 11:24, speaking of Barnabas, “He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith.” That I believe describes Gordon.
Our prayers are with all of you, his family. And may you find great comfort knowing that our friend and your loved one is in the presence of the God that Gordon loved and served.
Pastor Len and Norma Davis
