Obituary

lengthy illness. He was the son of the late Harry J and Eleanor Mitchelson of Quincy and
brother of the late Paul W Mitchelson. Married for 62 years to Ann Duffly Mitchelson, both of
the class of 1955 at Archbishop Williams High School. He is survived by his daughters Susan
M Bradley, husband Mark of Santa Barbara, CA, Sarah K Vitulano, husband Scott of Braintree,
and the late Lisa M Mitchelson of Hingham. Proud Buppy to Katherine Bradley, wife Elise of

Boston, Maureen Joyce and the late Brendan Joyce of East Dennis. Kathleen Budreski and
Frederick of Brewster. Nieces and nephews include Mark, Anjali and Jon Budreski and
Kathleen Joyce of East Dennis and dear family friend Julie Mellgren of Travis City, MI.

"" Always David, never Dave" as he was introduced to others, he often became the center of
the party, telling stories of his escapades. It was said that he could talk a dog off a meat
wagon!

He was an avid lifetime fan of his alma mater, Providence College '59 , basketball and
followed the teams, games, new recruits and tournaments for years. Retiring from State Street
Bank in 2003, gave him lots of time to engage in this much loved activity.

At his entry to his everlasting life may David be welcomed at the gate by a fine bottle of
Super Tuscan red wine and a good listener to his stories.

Services will be private at Hingham Cemetery Memorial garden where David will join his
beloved daughter Lisa who died in 2004.

In Lieu of flowers, donations to Dana Farber Cancer Institute 450 Brookline Ave Boston MA
02215 would be appreciated.
