Robert Dean Mitchell

Robert “Corky” Dean Mitchell, age 69 of Knoxville, TN, passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, December 29, 2022.

Corky spent 20 years driving tractor trailers, as a delivery driver for both PepsiCo and Miller Brewing Company. He then decided to change his path to a career in metal fabrication and anodizing, where he worked at Fab Metal and then finally at All Star Marine and Aerospace until he retired. An avid motorcyclist, nothing gave him joy like riding his bike and he rode every chance he could. He had a great number of loyal and loving friends, many of them life long, that were all more like family and meant the world to him. He will be greatly missed by everyone that knew and loved him, but he left them with decades of memories and great stories to tell.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Jolene Dunn.

 Survived by his wife, Shirley; daughter, Heather (Jarett) White; grandson, James Webb; great granddaughter, Brynlee Webb, along with Aunts, Uncles, in-laws, and cousins.

 The family wishes to express gratitude for all of the thoughts, prayers, and support they continue to receive. Corky requested no service, and the family will honor his wishes.
