Scott Mitchell Obituary, Death – After a heroic fight against melanoma that lasted for ten years, Scott R. Mitchell, popularly known as “The Gladiator,” passed away in peace at the age of 47. His battle had lasted for the previous decade. Mitchell gained a lot of attention for his performance in the movie “The Gladiator.” Kelli Mitchell, whose maiden name was Kraai, has referred to him as a devoted spouse during the past 23 years, during which time they have been married.
Kelli’s maiden name was Kraai. Both of his children, Derek Scott Mitchell and Kevin McAnully Mitchell, had a unique and irreplaceable place in his life. He was a devoted father to both of his children. He is highly regarded and treasured as Randall Mitchell and Janice Mitchell’s (née Singelman) son and heir apparent. Clay, Jeff (Billy Schmitt), and Chris (Matt) Keim’s dearest and most treasured brother and sister are Matt and Chris Keim. The devoted son-in-law of Jack and Patti Kraai, as well as a part of their extended family.
During this challenging time, I am keeping your wife’s sister and brother-in-law, Karin Kraai Dusz and Kristin Kraai-Keely, in my thoughts and prayers. You are their first cousin once removed. His nieces and nephews Jenna, Katie, and Gilly, together with his other niece and nephew Gabby and Caroline, hold Uncle Mitch in very high esteem. In remembrance of Scott’s life, there will be a time of fellowship on the afternoon of Sunday, February 26, 2012, beginning at one in the afternoon and continuing until three in the afternoon.
