Robert Wayne Mitchell of Grady, Arkansas was born December 12, 1956 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He passed away at his home on Monday, September 23, 2019 at the age of 62.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Iris Simpson Mitchell and his father, John Sidney Mitchell. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Angie Bitely Mitchell; two children, Hannah Barajas and husband, Roy, and Lukus Mitchell. He leaves behind two precious grandchildren, Grace and Isaac, his favorite sister, Marilyn Mitchell Ridge and a host of nieces and nephews.

Wayne was a 1974 graduate of Watson Chapel Academy. He enjoyed farming and working at Wolfe Athletic Goods prior to starting his 38-year career with Arkansas Power & Light and Middle South Utilities, now Entergy Services, Inc.

Wayne was an active member of Linwood Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon and treasurer. Truly having a servant's heart, he loved cooking and sharing that bounty with family, friends and medical personnel on his many office visits.

He served as a member, president, and treasurer for the Linwood/Moscow Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years. He had also coached baseball for the Pine Bluff Lawn and Leisure team in his younger years

Almost 20 Years ago, a scared young lady fresh out of college was tasked with doing various “training” for the operators that were NOT new at their jobs. It was very intimidating. Mr. Wayne Called me Ms. Heather and one time had his shift buy my lunch after a training. He was always so kind, so helpful, so caring. I have never forgotten this special treatment and willingness to be humble and super lighthearted and fun in the process. Working with Wayne for the two years before I became a stay home mom is still fresh in my memory. I am so sorry for your loss of this wonderful person. May God give you peace and bless you will clear memories of his beautiful personality. With Love, Heather May Boykin

I worked with Wayne for years at the southeastern System Operator Conferences, in which Entergy participated. We held 4 conferences per year and it was always a delight to see Wayne and his group. Wayne was an innovative and tireless leader and mentor for the technical people that run our power systems, and in that sense, he helped "keep the lights on" in the US Southeast! I could always count on Wayne to provide a warm smile and sense of humor through those long days of technical sessions and workshops. Wayne will truly be missed. To Wayne's family, may the closeness of family and friends provide you some comfort in your time of grief.
